TheVagrantDog

Born and raised in Juneau, Alaska. I've played D&D and related games for 19 years (and now I feel old). Nowadays, my flavor of choice is 5th edition, but I've played them all and have most of the books still.

On DM'ing: I prefer to run my own campaign settings- my two favorites are "The Weird West," set in a post-apocalyptic California filled with magic, and "Aether Most Proper," a planet-hopping galactic Pax Britannia powered by aether and grog-drinking Automatic Men. My longest-running campaigns were set in Greyhawk and the Forgotten Realms, or at least reasonable facsimiles.

On Playing: My favorite D&D character is Zook Waywocket, a fledgling archfey that started life as an adorable, evil gnome warlock. All my characters are built by first finding a question I wanted to answer- his was "Can I make a likeable-yet-blatantly-evil character?" His weapon of choice is an Unholy Spatula, he's in love with a Dark Elf Paladin, and he killed one of the other PC's 67 times one night. Zook is cool.

My Gaming Philosophy: Consistency is Key. You can't build a good story without internal consistency, and you can't play a fun game without ruling consistently. When it comes down to the book versus a judgment call, it is more important to make the same ruling every time than it is to follow what the book says.

My Default Mood: Polite, amused condescension. You've been warned.
