I've been playing RPG's since 1978. All versions of DND + a multitude of others. I owned the original brown DnD books but got rid of them when I got the 1st box set. Silly me.
I built my first computer, a Timex Sinclair 1000 out of a kit. Moved on to the Pet and other Commodore systems, then PC's.
I grew up in Indiana, but moved out west in 88 and now live in Sammamish (eastside of Seattle) with my wife Jennifer. My kids are both off to work/school now.
I am very interested in game systems and role playing. I think the games should be more fun, less bogged down. I'm a firm believer of pouring over your character sheet and the books outside the game, then trying not to reference them during it.
I'm also interested in the digital tools that folks are creating since I R an Engineer.
