About Skeld

I started gaming in 1985 when I bought the Red Box Beginner's Set with my lawnmowing money. I've been gaming ever since.

I usually DM. With my current group (15+ years together), I've GM'ed the following:
Tales of the Dales, a homebrew Forgotten Realms mish-mash of unlinked 2e, 3e, and homespun adventures, culminating with the City of the Spider Queen adventure.
Savage Tide Adventure Path from Dungeon Magazine #139-150.
Dawn of Defiance, a modifed adventure path for Star Wars Saga Edition.
The Price of Immortality trilogy (Crypt of the Everflame, Masks of the Living God, & City of Golden Death), modified for monster PCs.
The Dragon's Demand, which I ran in a slightly modified form while we were taking a break from Rise of the Runelords.
Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path was the last campaign I ran. I began with the original 3.5e AP, but switched over to the Anniversary Edition after Chapter 2: The Skinsaw Murders. After 4.5 years, my party defeated Karzoug the Claimer and there was much rejoicing.

I recently played (!) in justaworm's Thornkeep game and took a little break from GM'ing.
My Thornkeep character was: Cassus Cailean (Orphaned Male Human Cleric 8 of Cayden Cailean, VMC Bard)

Now that Thornkeep has finished, I'm getting back into GM'ing with the Curse of the Crimson Throne Hardcover.

On my short list of APs to run in the future:
Second Darkness (If I run this, I'll convert it to a Star Wars SE AP.)
Legacy of Fire
Shattered Star
Reign of Winter
Wrath of the Righteous (As lightly Mythic, or non-Mythic.)
Mummy's Mask
Iron Gods
Strange Aeons
Ironfang Invasion


I don't play nearly as much as I GM, but these are some PC ideas I have for the future:
Skeld the Superstitious (Male Human Bard Archaeologist)
Shaewyn (Female Human Kellid Ranger Witchguard)
Iru Aru (Female Human Fighter Archer)
Nigel Worthington III, Esq. (Male Human Occultist)
Herger the Joyous (Ulfen Male Skald [Spell Warrior])

In 2010 & 2011, I had the opportunity to serve as a Judge for the ENnies Awards. It was a really neat process and I'm glad I volunteered and was elected. However, it is definitely one of those situations where "people that like sausage should never visit a sausage factory," if you know what I mean.
