I first started tabletop Roleplay around 1986 with my first D&D Red Box Basic set. D&D saved my life, or at least gave me a quality of life I would never have had in its absence. Without boring you with tales of woe, I’ll simply say that D&D opened doorways to new experiences which allowed a young me to make friends and find stability and sanity in a chaotic world.
From my humble beginnings with the Red Box, I have expanded my horizons to play countless other RPGS, from Traveller to World of Darkness. The role of Dungeon Master or Games Master has usually fallen to me, not just because no one else would do it, but because I love to craft new worlds and characters. As a player you only get to play one character at a time, but as GM you get to play as many as you want. I’ve designed a system or three and at least six highly detailed campaign worlds for various games, but Phaemorea is my first attempt to get any of it published.
I have a diverse range of interests, including Tabletop Wargaming (including painting and terrain making), boardgames, computer games and … well, okay, maybe my interests are mostly gaming related :). I’m also an aspiring writer, which is writer talk for ‘starving writer’. Many of my works haven’t made it to publication yet, but based on feedback it’s worth it to keep trying.
