I was home educated most of my life, I've always been interested in science particularly physics. I went to college for A'levels, then between that and University I did a year-long full time circus course specialising in Acrobatics and Aerial. I did my undergraduate degree at Sheffield, and a summer Nuffield research project on scalar hairy black holes. Now I'm doing a PhD in Quantum Information Theory in Curved Spacetimes. I have a lovely wife, Sascha, we got married May 2010. We like going out, walking, cycling or for a meal and the cinema.

comment A fantasy system with similar dicerolling and levels of success as World of Darkness
Thanks, I'll look into it. To clarify, the main reason I specified medieval fantasy, is a lot of White Wolf games are set in modern day. I don't have a problem with slightly more ancient.

Thank you ever so much for this thorough answer. It will allow me to choose exactly what would go best with my group.

Thanks for clearing that up guys. I've now also had a look at the Burning Wheel 'hub and spokes' pdf where they outline the system. It looks really good, and easily lends itself to multiple levels of success. Worth play testing with my group I think. Thanks.

Thank you for your thorough answer, I will have a look at those suggestions. Just a quick question about Burning Wheel, what do you mean by isn't a storyteller-based system, does that mean it doesn't have a GM running the game?

Thanks, I'll certainly check it out, although, I was hoping for something more balanced between classes. Currently there is only one mage in our group.

Added clarification for magic items and non-magic combat in the system requirements.

Thank you. Just some clarification, does Mage: The Sorcerer's Crusade still include standard medieval combat, swords etc. and does it have rules regarding magic items / weapons and armor?
