About Brian Bachman

I've been playing RPGs for 35 years now, since I was in 8th grade and I first read about this game called Dungeons and Dragons in a small blurb in Newsweek magazine and some friends and I decided to give it a go. I've come all the way up through all the editions (although we bypassed 4th edition for Pathfinder). I've dabbled in many other genres, games and systems from Traveler to RIFTS to Boot Hill to Stardrive to Aftermath, but have always come back to D&D/Pathfinder. I guess at heart I'm more at home swinging a sword at a dragon than blasting a mutant with a shotgun or an alien with a laser. I've played with quite a few different groups over the years, but have had a pretty steady group (the Tuesday night gang) for more than 15 years now, with occasinal breaks when I'm overseas, like now. I am one of three GMs in the group, althoug two of us rotate through the hot seat much more than the third. I enjoy both playing and GMing about equally. Different experiences, but both loads of fun.

I work a professional job, am married and have kids, all of which take a lot away from the time I have to play and prepare games. fortunately, now my wife and kids (teenaged) play with our group, so I can combine quality time with gaming time. Score!
