About Devlin "Dusk" Valerian

Born in 1963 in Lübeck, Germany, I spend my first 14 years in my home Country. In 1979 my parents decided to move to the US, so they (or my mom) sent me to a boarding school to California to "pave the way". I stayed in the US till June or July 1983, but my mom decided to stay in Germany, thus I returned to good old "old" Europe.

Even though I planed to go back to the States as permanent Resident, something always came up to cross my plans. Well... I will make it before I die.... yep, for sure...California here I come...., I promised (myself).

I started playing RPGs some-when in September or October 1979, with AD&D. My first character has been a halfling thief. I later tried a dwarfen something and even played a centaur once, before trying an elven character. Well, since then elves have been my favorite.

Sometime in the mid 80s we (my Gaming-group and me) tried our hands at Warhammer RPG but that did not last long. Whe then played West End Games "Torg" till that line ended and returned to AD&D.

For the last 2 or 3 years I have been playing and GMing the latest Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Edition till it was resigned by Black Library (Thats also when we stopped reading their Novels, which became more and more worse in regards to quality, or maybe we did not care any more about them since the RPG was put down).
So after that Warhammer Experience we returned to D&D and 3.5, and when it was announced that Wizards and the RPGA dropped a) the game in favour to 4E and also dropped my alltime, livelong favorite Game-World (Greyhawk) and in addition to all the above, messed up my second favorite Setting (The Forgotten Realms) coupled with those infernal 4th Edition Rules...... well, thanks to Wizards of the Coast, I found my way to the Paizo Product Line. Thanks Wizards... I most likely would not have made it without you!
