Hi,

My name is Franck, I'm a French role player and I've been in CT for three years now. I'll soon be 37 and I've been playing since I was 13. My gaming has been very slow since I arrived in the US of A because of a combination of business, fatherhood and poor local social network. I'm very much of a trad' player but driven by forgie curiosity/subversion, and I would love to give a try to indie gaming when I find the right group. Like many I started with D&D but it really hasn't been a love story between us though I tried every couple of years with different people (last attempt was a couple of months ago and it fumbled again).

I think I discovered the BG podcast through geekgirlsrule. I browsed the archives of the podcast trying to get a feel for your style. I listened to the "things we hate" episode first because I'm a gossip whore and also because IME people are bound by what they hate as much as by what they love. It gave me an idea of the local humor too and I liked it.

I think I've been verbose enough. Now I'll lurk around the boards and maybe even intervene.

Z.

Hi, all.

My name's Z., and I'm a 30-something husband/father/geek. I spent my formative years doing more than my share of tabletop roleplaying, but, sadly, I've slipped a bit in my adult life. I've slowly been trying to reconnect with my gamer roots, and part of that process led me to the Gameologists. It just so happens that the BGs were vaguely aware of my existence via the nerd music blog/podcast I maintain at hipsterplease.com, and mutual geeky admiration ensued.

Other than that, there's really not much to know save the facts that I contribute to the GeekDad culture/parenting blog at Wired.com (which is fun, but not particularly lucrative), I have a D20 tattoo (which serves to remind me that RPGs were my original inspiration to write, and also that I have poor impulse control), and I was a founding member of 70's UK blues rock giants Foghat (which is actually a damned lie)!

Howdy all, I am Gtroc. the G is silent, just so you are aware. I live in the great state of Montana, in the northwest portion of the state to be specific. I have been gaming for somewhere around 14 years. I started gaming as the GM for West End Star Wars, then I moved on to playing Rifts. I have played or owned over five hundred separate role playing games throughout my life. I am obsessive about games, and I am constantly on the lookout for the next interesting game. my biggest gripe in gaming is gamers who are stuck in a rut, unwilling to try new systems and new types of play. I generally run super hero style games, though high fantasy is an area I like to dabble in as well. in the "real" world I go to collage, majoring in theater, train in an obscure Korean martial art,dai ni gaijaro(I most definitely spelled that wrong, as I have only heard it spoken, never written), and I study mythology. I am also writing a novel, and I am about to start alpha testing my first role playing game. it is called Fated, and it is awsome!(I hope) so that is me, hi!
I saw a lady on T.V. She was born without arms. Literally, she was born with her hands attached to her shoulders... and that was sad, but then they said, "Lola does not know the meaning of the word 'can't.'" And that to me was kinda worse... in a way... ya know? Not only does she not have arms, but she doesn't understand simple contractions. It's very simple Lola, you just take two words, you put them together, then you take out the middle letters, you put a comma in there and you raise it up!

Hello everyone! I'm Paolo, a 21year-old Italian player... Nice to meet you!
I can't remember how i discovered the forum, but maybe through a link found on WotC boards.

I like the House Rules section very much, and i have found some intriguing projects there.

P.S: Pardon my bad English!

Hey all. I am a 23 year old game designer. I found this site while browsing MySpace for gamers that I could friend, and well here I am!

I am currently getting the second release of my customizable card game Geek Fight! ready for pre-sales later on next month. I am sure we will see sales high enough that we can push our product into game stores. I also try to bring players into other indie TCGs on the market.

Before I end this post I must plug Geek Fight!. Imagine taking all of your favorite nerd and geek stereotypes, and putting them in an arena. Now imagine giving them all of their favorite gaming accessories and cosplay props and telling them to beat the crud out of each other. That is Geek Fight! in a nutshell. We are getting "set 2" ready for next month. This will mark our national release, and then we will re-release set 1.

If you want anymore info, click my sig.


Click it, you know you want to.

Hi!
I'm Jenn from Trapcast - I've been on the boards for a little but never came to introduce myself. I'm from Philadelphia and have been playing a little bit of rpg for a couple years and now i'm expanding out into the big new world of gaming. I'm on a podcast with my friends Brant, Sara, and George (who pees on things) and we talk about gaming and nonsense. If you want check it out!

I was on the collaborative podcast with Mickey and Meg and Kristen and now I should try to get on forums to talk and ramble about games and stuff. So now i need to check out this forum every day just like i check out people.com  :lol

Hey there, y'all. I'm an early twenties gamer in Portland, OR. I like to check out the forums here, but I admit I'm mainly joining to a run a 3.5 PBP campaign with some of my old gaming buddies, now that we're spread across the states. Thanks!

Hey there, I'm an Englishmen born and bred, decided to join as the WOTC past editions forum seems to be slowing down a lot. I play 3.5 exclusively. I'm a bit of a lurker though.

Hey everyone.  My name's Chris and I am living out the last few weeks of my 20s as I post this.  For the past 15 years or so I have had little to no interest in gaming.  Before that, I played a bunch of AD&D, along with some Rifts, GURPS and other games.  For some reason, I've recently become really interested in gaming again.  Through Brilliant Gameologists and some other podcasts, I've been reeducating myself. 

I found a local D&D meetup group and have done some 4e which, having missed 3 & 3.5 entirely, is pretty different from what I remember.  I'm also enjoying reading through new (to me at least) systems like Savage Worlds and Burning Wheel.  I'm really intrigued by the indie gaming scene and storytelling type games.  While I like the action/adventure style games, it is the collective storytelling potential of RPGs that really gets me interested.  Still working out how to get a chance to experience gaming like that though...

Hmmm.. I also like indie rock, baseball, dark beer, science-fiction and hardboiled crime novels, writing, earth tones, and organizing things...

Hey, I'm a lurker of several months and general internet vagabond, here from the mythical land of 4chan.  Or WotC.  Whichever one is less likely to draw boiling hot rage.  I enjoy 3.5 and 4e, SotC, flavor, JRPGS, eclectic tastes, and anything that can be used for the purposes of fueling crackpot ideas.  I also like long walks on the beach, puppies, and tentacles.
