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.

I was assuming they would read the "closed as duplicate of" notice that has a big link in it at the top.

I think this question is a duplicate of this earlier question. Feel free and clarify if it's not.

comment How do I deal with aggressive/disrespectful criticism?
@DaleM I rolled your change back, because it basically turned this into 7 loosely related questions. If the OP chose one of those and made a question about it it would be fine - but that took the Q from "somewhat vague" to "7 specific questions pushing at the edges of the whole space the OP is asking about."
