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 Can GMs play as well as direct?
@AlchemistLord, please comment or edit more about what you mean. Assuming you mean a GM in a traditional game also running a PC in the same game at the same time (in the game they are GMing, in other words) then this is a duplicate of rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/2590/should-a-gm-be-a-player; but if you're asking something else then...

comment Does Adaptive Style really let you recover expended maneuvers?
I understand, but that deletion without explanation can cause the other party to "waaah." There was an old bad comment exchange, just because it's being cleaned up later doesn't mean that shouldn't be noted. Now I have more comments to delete...

Stop arguing in comments. Post your own answers, point out specific errors in others for improvement, but don't back-and-forth it in this way.

comment Is this the correct damage roll for ranged weapons?
Without the calculator or the full character, this is just asking for a guessing game.

comment Easy-to-learn system that supports one-on-one play
I'm going to close this for the moment. Unfortunately, this description still fits (at least arguably) 90% of RPGs, as can be seen by the spread of answers below. If you can get more specific, or more quantifiable about the existing requirements, it might help.

comment What do books have over the SRD?
This is too broad as applied to "every d20 game," as every game is different, but we have an extensive answer about that regarding Pathfinder which is representative.
