I'm keen to give something back to a hobby that has inspired and entertained me for over 20 years.

I blog about developing roleplaying campaigns, how I run them and the thoughts I have while I'm doing it. Currently documenting how I prepare and run a short Vampire: The Requiem chronicle with the occasional note on an irregular Call of Cthulhu campaign.

If it’s credentials that you’re after I guess it’d be fair to say that I ran a lot of roleplaying tournaments at local Melbourne cons and have written a few things for White Wolf, Chaosium and Games Workshop. In recent years I’ve focused my efforts on running quality campaigns for a close group of friends and experimenting with something I feel to be a very primal and deeply creative art form. But you know, that’s just me.

comment How can Blood Potency 0 creatures heal Aggravated Damage?
Perhaps you should clarify the question then. Because you suggested that they could be half-vampires (ie partly alive). Failing that I think gruszczy has given a suitable answer. Really, common sense prevails. What ever works for you in your world setting. Remember the golden rule, "change the rules if they don't work for you."

comment Where can I find other RPG players?
Gaming conventions or local games clubs are a great way to meet like-minded gamers. Not everyone approaches the hobby the same way, so playing with others in convention games avoids an uncomfortable situation (you wouldn't invite just anyone to play in your carefully constructed campaign). Better yet run a scenario at a convention! You'll meet a lot of gamers this way.

comment How should a GM deal with player-instigated sexuality in an RPG?
This is what I do, cut away, let the players fill it in with their imagination (it is roleplaying after all). @Wilmanric - I think this is spot on. The more interesting outcome of sex in RPGs is how it influences the ongoing story and the impact on player characters over the details of who and what...

comment As a man, how can I roleplay a woman better?
A good point, and agreed. I lighten my voice and go for a different tibre. Avoid Monty Python-esque falsettos all cost (unless for limited comedic effect). The same can be said for accents, actually. This is no Hogan's Heroes or Python's The Holy Grail!
