First my apology if I'm long winded and rambling but that tends to be my internet communication style. Its a bit shotgun ... gonzo ... in your face ... rather excessive one might say. My earliest exposure to gaming was classic red box D&D in the 5th grade. My childhood was filled with C.S. Lewis and Tolkien so when I experienced D&D I was instantly in love and addicted. However I only had about a 2 to 3 year run of Basic D&D (classic red box) eventually girls, sports and booze would pull me away from gaming. I finally came to my senses and returned to games in 2000 at that time I came back to gaming via Warhammer and Warhammer 40K. I'm a board game fan and a fan of any good RPGing. I have a BA and two masters degrees, I'm married with 5 children, I'm an agnostic and so far left politically I think I might be considered an anarchist ... but if you don't agree with me there no worries as I really try to talk about the things we all love ... games ... and leave religion and politics for other places.
