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.

That isn't true, as you can see from RPGNow, any of the big "lists of free RPGs" on the Internet, etc.

comment Are there ways to concentrate on more than one spell at a time?
This really reminds me of the anime Slayers, where you can only have one spell going at once, but then some dude has a magic amulet and he can do two...

comment Creating Phil Taylor the darts champion in D&D 5e
Does a character have to be "the best" to be "very successful"? I'd contend not.
