I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Excessively clever characters vs. narrativist RP?
All you're saying is, "I read the article but don't want to do that." It's YOUR character. YOU control how she thinks and reacts, and insisting otherwise is just excuse-making. Don't use your character's social interaction problems to justify yours.

comment Is there an alternate rule to allow different stats for Male/Female characters?
This whole digression has been nuked as "not constructive" by the mods now. I suggest either taking discussion to chat, or folding information as to why this is potentially a terrible and/or sexist idea into an answer that follows our site guidance on how to challenge the frame of a question.

comment Without a magic item economy, what is gold for?
I'm sorry, this is more of a tangential comment and not an answer to the question posed. So what does he do with all his gold?

comment What is a good, free, Space-faring RPG?
That isn't true, as you can see from RPGNow, any of the big "lists of free RPGs" on the Internet, etc.
