I am a 36 year old who was introduced to Dungeons & Dragons at 14, and has never looked back. Within a year I was designing my own material and running my own games.
Over the last 22 years I have played countless role-playing games and designed adventures, rules & mechanics, spells, creatures and stories. I literally have crates filled with faded maps and hand scrawled material dating back more than twenty years. Of course a lot of it is the demented ravings of a madman, conceived at 3am and powered by caffeine, but after so much time I’ve managed to hone some semblance of order to the chaos, and found a surprising wellspring of not completely terrible concepts. Apparently some of it is even vaguely playable.
I live in Australia with my beautiful and endlessly tolerant wife, and am adjusting to life with a 15 month old son who is a constant source of joy and not a small amount of anxiety.
