About Arkos

I've been role-playing since being introduced to 2E in high school. I've GMed Birthright (2E and 3E), Planescape, Deadlands, Shadowrun, d20 Modern, Eberron, Forgotten Realms 4E, Numenera, Everway... even Rifts. And I've played plenty more. I'm kind of a system junkie. I also play far too many board games to count.

I got into Pathfinder pretty early on, and my home group switched over as fast as we could. But it took a while for me to discover PFS during Season 3, and that's really what turned me into the Pathfinder geek I am today. I've GMed PFS at my FLGS in Portland, at Gamestorm in Vancouver, WA, and PAX in Seattle. Last year, I finally made my way to PaizoCon for even more fun.

Most of my Pathfinder gaming has been with pre-written material, so I entered RPGSS last year as a way to test my design chops from earlier years of homebrew campaigns. One year later, and here I am. Alternate, I mean Top 32, I mean Top 16. I'm pretty happy with that outcome.
