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 Barbarians vs Berserkers
Eh, Berserk was but one of many possible barbarian powers in Diablo and it wasn't even really rage (turned damage to magical damage), but yes, obviously the two were very close in conceptual space to one another. Of course Diablo II is too late to have influenced D&D3, so at best we can prove parallel development by noting it.
