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.

comment What's a good way to use treasure XP in 4th edition?
Part of the point (at least for me) of treasure XP is the players knowing that's how the get XP, as it creates different goals and motivations in play. Other than that, I think that's what I need to do. For some reason I've been wary of changing the XP curves. Sacred cows, I guess.
