About Jason Nelson

Hey there!

Let's see, I like cuddling up by the fire on a rainy night, long walks on the beach... oh wait, no, it's not THAT kind of profile!

Seriously, I have been gaming since March 1, 1981, which I only remember because the old character sheets had a spot for 'date character created,' and I wrote down the date when I made my first character, Tjaden Ludendorff, a 1st Ed. Paladin with 1st Ed. psionics. Why yes, as a matter of fact he did cheat outrageously! I believe my brother and I ended up killing the castellan and taking over the Keep on the Borderlands. But I digress...

As a long-time gamer I still have a fondness for the olden days and like to update old 1st Ed/Basic D&D adventures and ideas even while running with newer systems. I have always written lots of supplementary content for my games, new spells, new magic items, new monsters, all the rest, but especially character classes. Just ask anyone who played in my 7-year-old 2nd Ed. campaign. Oh, the notebooks. I am currently running a weekly campaign set in an updated version of Al-Qadim, using some of the original adventures but redesigned classes and such for 3rd Ed.

I like both FR and Greyhawk, Dark Sun and Al-Qadim, never played Eberron or Birthright but both have good points, and I like homebrew too. I have played GURPS and Warhammer FRP in the past but D&D has always been home. My own style is usually more of a mix and match, take a few things I like from here and things I like from there, game systems, novels, real history, whatever. I may be hardcore on the rules themselves, but the campaign has lots of room for new and different things.

First D&D product I owned: 1st Ed. Monster Manual

First D&D product I bought with my own money: Dragon #51

First D&D adventure I bought with my own money: C2 Ghost Tower of Inverness

All-time favorite adventures (in no particular order):
- Ruined Kingdoms (Al-Qadim)
- Return to the Tomb of Horrors
- A Paladin in Hell
- WG4 Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun
- C4-5 To Find a King/Bane of Llewellyn
- G1-2-3 Steading of the Hill Giant Chief/Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl/Hall of the Fire Giant King
