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.

As I mentioned, albeit very unclearly, it's not really a spy network either, so independent cells aren't really a plus--it's more of a knowledge/information network.

comment Any games with a Magicka-like (experimental/combination-based) magic system?
I think that Mage is an interesting concept, but in this case I was looking for something less flexible.
