I've only been gaming steadily for about five years, and most of that has been DMing for D&D.

I'm very interested in the early RPGs of the 70s and early 80s, but my active game right now is a 4th edition D&D game with some house rules to (hopefully) give it some of the feel of those older games.

My interest in gaming is two-fold, in that not only am I an active gamer, but a PhD student in anthropology and will be writing my dissertation on role-playing games. I'm interested in the connections between play, myth, and ritual.
