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 A fellow player does not want me to roleplay, what do I do?
+1. The other two answers may or may not be advocating "compromise for its own sake" but they are definitely advocating compromise; I've played in plenty of groups where "what powers are on your character sheet" is none of anyone else's business (but the GM). You are NOT required to change your style because one player is extra nosy.

comment Isn't wielding inappropriately large weapons pretty powerful?
All these comments were deleted for a reason, we're up to thirtysomething now. Post your own answer if you have differing opinions. Period.
