A chance to talk about me?  Taken.

I started with the D&D basic set in the late 70's.  It was all solo stuff I did for myself, but it did lay a seed for the future.   When I hit college, I found others who played and that brought me back to 2nd edition D&D at that point.   Small amount of Call of Cthulhu and Stormbringer, as well.  Loved Palladium, but no one played it.  Then meet two people who really changed my life and joined the first Amber diceless game in Iowa City.  This was before the rulebook came in, and they just had a few photocopied pages.   That got me to run my first real games using GURPS Fantasy and Supers.  GURPS was a great system for the time.

Moved to Vegas for a girl.  That didn't work, but met my wife through gaming friends (mostly Magic).  We got heavy into 1st Edition L5R - the best game world I've ever played in.  Never bothered to try any of the 3 later editions.   We moved back to Iowa, and for the last 11 years or so we just game for each other.  So, pretty much diceless.  Mostly an odd mis-mash of Marvel/DC superheroes now.  Currently working on a 3 generation game using Mutants and Masterminds 3rd Edition.

I'd love to do fantasy again, but can't talk her into it running it for me. 

Looking forward to Age of Rebellion releasing in a couple of days.  And of course The Strange (August, I think).
