RPG Profile

I'm currently running (at home):

Violence Spells Gods and Politics in playtests.
The Warren occasionally for my boys.

I'm currently running (online):

NWN but scripting and building mostly.

I would especially like to play/run:

Violence Spells Gods and Politics in more playtests.

...but would also try:

Swords Without Master
D&D, Call of Cthulu, Runequest, and Star Frontiers

I live in:

...a state of ignorance from which I try to escape, and Oakland where I want to stay.

2 or 3 well-known RPG products other people made that I like:

A Red and Pleasant Land
Wonder and Wickedness
Amber Diceless Roleplaying Game

2 or 3 novels I like:

A Wizard of Earthsea
The Tower of Myriad Mirrors
Arabian Nights and Days

2 or 3 movies I like:

Pan's Labyrinth
Spirited Away

Best place to find me on-line:

House of the Magus

I will read almost anything on tabletop RPGs if it's:

...horror beyond horror tropes, weirdness juxtaposed with normalcy, fantasy settings which express their themes in play rather than by assertion, and generally anything I have not seen before.

I really do not want to hear about:

...D&D mechanics and hacks. I enjoy playing D&D, but I am not interested in talking about the rules. Once I did like talking about hacks of the rules, and for a little while recently I tried to get into that again, perhaps for the nostalgia, but I soon realized that I did not care. Despite saying that, I am still interested in bold reduction of D&D's mechanics to where nothing further can be removed. Searchers of the Unknown is a good example. The Black Hack is not.

I think dead orc babies are ( circle one: funny / problematic / ....well, ok, it's complicated because....)

I don't care. Its a game. Can't we put an end to this argument? Although admittedly I think it is funny that people take this seriously, I keep my mouth shut because fighting over "bad wrong fun" is a waste of time.

Game(s) I'm in are like (link to something)

My Violence Spells Gods and Politics games are like this feast.

The Warren game I run is like Deliverance meets Usagi Yojimbo with Watership Down matte paintings in the background.

If you know anything about _____ it'd help me with a project I'm working on

I'd like to know more about Celtic and Germanic tribes in the area of the modern Netherlands from the time the Franks rose to power to Charlemagne's Massacre of Verden. This would help me with the Arnheim setting I am developing further for Violence Spells Gods and Politics.
