My first language is German. I started playing with Das Schwarze Auge. As a referee I'm lazy and prefer to do things just-in-time. My preferred system right now is Labyrinth Lord.

comment Using the iPad as a GM-tool
Apparently my usage of printed books relies on little details like useful info being on the pages around the current page and my ability to quickly scan backwards and forwards, and on leaving books open where I last used them without intending to come back (and setting no bookmark), essentialy substituting as automatic bookmarks. On the iPad these little details require a tiny bit of attention and time. Somehow it just didn't work for me. All the little details built up too much friction.

comment What defines the “old school renaissance”?
Well, at the time there was Dungeon and Dragon magazine. The barrier to entry seemed incredibly high. Even Kobold Quarterly had wonderful art. But Fight On! Magazine had stuff that seemed doable. It had maps that I could have done. I felt that this magazine was made by people like me. Ordinary folks.

comment Are there any good tabletop RPGs for young beginning players?
I felt picking abilities was a tricky thing since I would have to read them to the kids and have them make choices.

My only problem with meetup.com is the cost associated with running a group. :(
