Most of you will probably add me because I love tabletop roleplaying or because I am a Doctor Who fan.
My time zone is -6 GMT. I keep to very odd sleep schedules, so never be afraid to schedule games or chats outside of my time zone. I can make schedules. I do enjoy tabletop gaming over G+ Hangouts, so ask if you'd like to roleplay!

Kind-hearted father of three wonderful kids, full
custody and divorced. I'm interested in education, philosophy,
mysticism, hermeticism and Neo-Victorian values. I have a big interest
in internet techology, specifically when it comes to evolving forms of
social networking. I do not Tweet and seldom email unless its something
official. I like all sorts of urban fantasy, intellectual horror, soft
sci-fi and light fantasy. I'm a fan of Asian cinema and, very rarely,
anime. I addicted to ebooks, several a week. I've been known to read a
lot of comics, but I am not a collector because I rarely keep them. Gaming
been roleplaying for thirty years, starting at the age of eight with a
brand-new red box copy of Dungeons & Dragons in 1983. I played all
the TSR games for years (Boot Hill, Star Frontiers, Top Secret, Marvel
Super Heroes, etc.) and branched into other games in the early ninties
primarily FASA (Battletech, Shadowrun and Earthdawn) and Lion
Rampart/White Wolf (Ars Magica and then the whole World of Darkness
line). I had a huge exposure to Call of Cthulhu in college and
I've played through and enjoyed most of the early line of modules and
sourcebooks. I didn't get to play the game for years, but I did continue
to be a closet collector. The World of Darkness line was the first time that I saw
gaming writers as fans and learned that the games and storylines are
written by highly accessible people that enjoyed creating worlds as much
as I liked playing in them, so I continue to thank all of those people
in my thoughts.
I might not get to say I've played with the early
D&D movers and shakers, but I was there in spirit and online with
the early World of Darkness. I always wanted to give live-action gaming a
try, but I was never in the right place at the right time. Never joined
the Camarilla, but always wanted a local scene. I have no favorites in
oWoD because I've played and enjoyed them all. I stopped with oWoD games around the time of Revised because it just got too big for
me to try and incorporate into multi-supernatural campaigns that I
enjoyed, but I did like KotE and HtR.
I got back into Palladium for a
brief while and Cyberpunk/Mekton before discovering my next big
obsession with Legend of the Five Rings, Deadlands and 7th Sea. I've
played almost every major indy game over the past twenty years either in
home games or at conventions.
My current viewpoint is that less
complicated systems create more story opportunities, so that's my
current obsession. My big hero has been Drive-Thru RPG for doing so much to get things
online, in-print and released in general.
I'm looking at finally getting around to
doing some writing and creating of my own because I've decided it is
time. That was much more long-winded than you wanted to know, but I've
been gaming for a long time and its one of my favorite ranting topics.
I've met an ex-wife, lovers, best friends and enemies through gaming.
I've gotten to know some of the most interesting people in this hobby I
enjoy and its taught me how to tell and share in stories with the best
gamers I could ever seek to meet.
