My RPGs are collaborative storytelling. I love conversation scenes and emergent settings. I'm interested in the influence of environment (at the table and in the game world) on play.

USEFUL/INTERESTING LINKS: Worldbuilding & the Okapi's Butt; Making the Tough Decisions; goblin dice; abstractions are leaky; print-&-fold minis; Paradigms of Play; papercraft dice tower; consequences as positive currency (Fate); Making Superman Truly Invulnerable (Fate Core); Rick Neal's essays (DFRPG); Level 1 Equivalent Damage (4e); improved skill challenges (4e); No Such Thing as D&D; Same Page Tool.

You will often find me in the chat; come on by!

CURRENT RPG HABITS: Our major game is a serial campaign about Weird Stuff using Atomic Robo rules, interspersed with single-session games in other systems. I'm the primary GM, but everyone takes a turn sometimes.

CONTEMPORARY GAMING: Mostly games like , , and , but occasionally we run , , , , , and . I'm experimenting with game design, too: a FAE hack about holy werewolves, and a unique system inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

GAMING HISTORY: Started in and . Dabbled in , Dresden Files Accelerated (playtest), /The Princes' Kingdom, , and Stargate SG-1.

CHARACTER NOTE: Never short on Opinions and overambitious Ideas. I want to play a shulassakar and a musteval, and I have an elaborate SG-1 campaign I fear I'll never get to run.

comment What is a good word for all sentient races?
Welcome to rpg.se! Please take a look at the tour, it's a useful introduction to the site. It's hard for the Stack to handle questions without clear criteria for answers; "not too sci-fi and not too vampire-y" is broad enough that answers will just be guesses. That'd be great for a traditional forum but SE uses a Q&A format. Another Stack like Writers, English Language & Usage, or Worldbuilding might be able to help, but this doesn't seem to be a problem that RPG-specific experience can help solve.

comment How does the Wish spell work with spells that interact with material components like Clone, Leomund's Secret Chest, or Magic Jar
Are you asking if, when using wish to duplicate the effects of a spell with expensive components (or focuses), the wish spell's lack of need for expensive materials overrides the needs of the spell it's duplicating?
