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 scenarios came in the Fifth Edition core book for Call of Cthulhu?
Thanks! I ended up running "The Sanatorium," which I think might be my favorite one shot scenario I've tried.

comment Good source for a dark/weird dryad concept?
Thanks all, that's some good stuff. I also read Algernon Blackwood's short story "The Willows" yesterday and although it doesn't deal with dryads per se, it has some great concepts. I'll probably steal the setting of that story and drop in a dryad based on some of the concepts below.
