What are you looking for?:
As a GM I like to keep my games open for anyone and everyone. I am not too concerned about party balance as an off-balance party can create loads of fun, especially watching a non-rogue trying to disarm a trapped chest!
I run my D&D Games in the Forgotten Realms primarily, since that is the world with which I am most familiar and know best. I have also played Pathfinder and open to being a player.
I do not care for powergamers or metagamers. I do like players who foil the best laid plans of the GM with clever thinking. The entire point of the game is to have fun participating in the story and really getting in depth with your character, perhaps to the point where you are sad to see the end coming. (BTW, this is the exact reason I use the name Mudgrubber!)
As a player I like action and puzzle-solving. (Shadowrun has lots of both!) Combat/hack and slash can be enjoyable, but should not define the game.
About Me
I am now 53 and still married. Sons are all grown and have kids of their own. My wife Sandi plays 3E D&D and Pathfinder only, and she always plays wizards. I once had a gaming group of which three were in the military (now since gone), one got married (now his wife owns him) one is married-with-children (ditto), and the only other one left is one of the original founding members of our Shadowrun group, and we are both looking for SR players. He does not play D&D, so my wife and I are looking for players for my campaign as well as a group with which we can play. We prefer to game on Saturdays, although Friday night would be a possible option.
I started with the Basic Set in the mid-80s where I ran my first game. I played AD&D 2E for a while, but it kept getting more and more detailed until I just got burnt out.
3E rekindled my love for D&D after 2E ruined it for me, and that is where my heart lies, as well as my games. I am not interested in 4E and would love to learn more about 5E. The entire point of D&D is to see your character grow as the game is played, not just in skills and feats, but in character development. It is one thing to start off knowing certain combat maneuvers, but it is the background and experiences that makes a memorable character.
