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 Playing Dnd 5e with two players
It's worth noting that 5e in terms of play is most like 2e AD&D, and there were a lot of published solo adventures for 2e that can be trivially converted if you happen across them.

You will want to investigate the one-on-one tag, it's where a bunch of questions about one-GM, one-player play lurk.

comment Does Pathfinder have the character imbalance problem that D&D 3.X has?
I don't reclose/reopen after folks vote the other way, but this should still be closed.

I see no objective criteria in this question; it's just asking for arguing from all the relevant camps as pure opinion.

comment How to fix sorcerors getting shafted by spell point variants?
I am not deleting this because it's right across the line of actually being an answer to the question, but it's a terrible answer. You are making up a new mechanic with no playtest or experience behind it and just tossing it out there. That's not what we expect of good quality answers on the site.
