Welcome, Jim! I've been gaming for 26 years now myself. It's brought me a lot of joy. I'm quite proud of myself for being a gamer, because it has taught me a lot about the world I live in.jimflory wrote:Hello all! My name is Jim Flory (Hiiiiii Jiiiiim!). I've been playing D&D, in one form or another, for 37 years now. I still haven't won.
I haven't played in a face-to-face game in 10 years. I've played in play-by-post games...there's a huge level of disconnect there for me, which gives me a lot of difficulty enjoying the experience.jimflory wrote:Primarily, in whatever groups I've played with, I end up being the DM. I enjoy it. My Players (usually) enjoy it. So, it works out.
I've done a bit of time on the Player side as well, and I do enjoy the break and change in perspective.
Mostly, I get a lot of joy out of creating for the wealth of rpg projects at my fingertips.
I've never LARPed myself, always wanted to try it though...maybe someday.jimflory wrote:I've spent some very long phases being into other games such as Palladium Fantasy, Rifts, the old World of Darkness games. I even ran Vampire LARPs as my primary job for a few years.
These days, I balance grown-up life *shudder* with my D&D fixes by running a weekly game.
Currently, we're playing a campaign set in Eberron.
I'd love to hear about Eberron campaign!
