Although I only started playing about a year and a half ago, D&D has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. My brother was a huge 2nd edition fan and I often would help him research new weapons and locales for his game. Most of my friends in college played as well, but I resisted its charms until recently. I now write a lot about role-playing games, particularly D&D, for my blog, SarahDarkmagic.com as well as Loremaster.org and TemporaryHitPoints.com. I'm also part of two podcasts, 4 geeks 4e and the DM Roundtable and am a regular contributor to a third, The Tome Show.
