I approach tabletop RPGs as cooperative storytelling. Usually the game master, I tend to design elaborate world settings for my players to frolic in, and I love improvisational conversation scenes. The rare times I get to run a player character, I prefer to play grumpy old people and characters with unusual superstitions.

USEFUL/INTERESTING LINKS: The Same Page Tool; Making the Tough Decisions; Goblin dice; abstractions are leaky; customizable print-and-fold minis; Worldbuilding and the Okapi's Butt; Consequences as positive currency (Fate); Making Superman Truly Invulnerable (Fate Core); Rick Neal's essays (DFRPG); Level 1 Equivalent Damage (4e); Stalker0's Alternate Core Skill Challenge System (4e); No Such Thing as D&D.

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

SYSTEMS: Currently diving into , and very excited about it. I'm most experienced in running and , but moved away from them recently. I've also dabbled in , , , Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple, and Stargate SG-1, among others.

I'm experimenting with game design, including a FAE hack about holy werewolves and a unique system inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

CURRENT GAMES: Running a series of mini-campaigns with a single player, including:

  • A game set in low-fantasy Ancient Egypt, about a subsistence hunter turned werecat priest of Bastet.
  • A game set in The City in the Thief video game franchise. I play a homeless shaman ex-P.I, and the player in the Egypt game is the GM.
  • A Core-modified game about a trickster changeling in a South Carolina college town where kids' toys are coming to life.
  • Hoping to run a Core version of SG-1 in which my single player controlling a whole SG team, without asking him to handle four different character sheets.

CHARACTER NOTE: Never short on Opinions and overambitious Ideas.
