I am a driven (some say obsessive) gamer from Australia, who loves story-writing and roleplaying rather than powergaming. I love reading (getting through around 2-300 pages per night), favouring Lee Child, Michael Connolly, John Connelly, R.E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Sax Rohmer, Charles de Lint, Jeffery Deaver, and many others.
I'm usually pretty good at pre-empting my players, but am prone to occasional brain-lapses, like dropping an axe out of a tree (onto my wife and dog), or practicing my katana-fencing (or Kendo, whatever you want to call it) in the backyard and accidentally tearing the meniscus in my left knee.
For a laugh, check out the video/console game reviews by 'Yachtzee' at Zero Punctuation (unfortunately not suitable for work, but VERY FUN)
