What are you looking for?:
Not currently looking to join a game or DM one (yet!), but as a player and a DM, I tend to prefer flexible environments with complex plots and a good mix of sleuthing/adventure/exploration. Combat happens, but it's never my entire focus. It says a lot that I tend to play a Bard! The occasional one-off dungeon crawl of strict trap-finding and Bad Guy massacre is fun, don't get me wrong, but it's nothing my brainmeats would stay stimulated by for long.

In terms of style, I vastly prefer original campaigns/worlds, and I take the stance that the books are not the The Word Of God(dess)(es); they are a guideline and a standard which gives tools to balance the inevitable tweaks I make to help mechanics fit the worlds in my imagination. If you're a nitpicker, thank you, the world needs you, but I'll probably drive you insane.
About Me
Biography:
I was introduced to D&D back in high school as the only Girl in a group of Guys, and grew up on wild basement-and-pizza adventures set in 3.0 with a 3-year, (mostly) reliable group of blended teens/early 20s, typically between 4-6 people at once. The DM had aspirations toward becoming a writer, and it showed. He was an excellent and compelling storyteller, which has no doubt shaped my preferences considerably. We briefly tried L5R after D&D, but the group didn't settle into it very well, myself included. We spent a very satisfying pair of long campaigns in Alternity, which I adore, and I am geekily saddened by its comparative lack of popularity!

Through my university years, play time was limited and mostly back to D&D, 3.5 this time, though I ran a few one-off Alternity sessions on the side myself. I began playing on MUDs and MUSHes then as well, with a strong preference toward text-based RP, but it certainly isn't the same as a good tabletop session, even if those sessions happen these days over Skype.

Presently, post-university by a fair number of years, I have played Pathfinder and enjoyed it very much, dipped my toes into D&D 4.0 and decided I would have liked it much more if it weren't called D&D (too different, not "my" D&D) and presently I am very happily a player under a lovely series of DMs and fellow players scattered across the States and the UK.

I tend to prefer either 3+ hour weekly sessions or longer sessions every other week. Playing daily is impossible with my schedule and playing monthly would mean I forgot half of what we did last time we met.

Excellence, then, is a habit.
