I was first introduced to D&D with Tom Moldvay’s Basic box set that my dad bought me. I read through it, but didn’t really catch on. I didn’t have anyone to show me how to play, so the game didn’t get a lot of attention. But one day I was able to sit down and read Keep on the Borderlands, colored in the numbers on the dice, and asked my friends to play. I became the Dungeon Master, and I’ve been running games ever since. Many Many Many years later I met Shawn running some games on Roll20.
How did my time with Tribality get started? It all started July 2014, when I created a D&D 5th edition fan page on Facebook. It was growing fast, and I was sharing a lot of news and my home-brew creations. One day my friend Shawn asked me, What are your plans? You could be sharing this on your own website, and I said “uhhhh…. (seriously I have no clue what I am doing).” He said that he’d like to create a website forum for me to share news, ideas and links. He gave me access to a WordPress site he had setup on a website called Tribality to practice, and was going to create another website just like it called The Fool and Phoenix. I kept chugging away daily at articles on Tribality and within a month we had a thriving site. I am now totally hooked on Google Analytics watching how well an article is received. It has been a great partnership running Tribality with Shawn.
