What are you looking for?:
I am looking for a smaller game with a chance to really show off the characters. That can include a good amount of combat, so long as everyone at the table gets a chance to have face time. Swords and sorcery is good and familiar. I've been reading a lot of modern fantasy and it seems like a fun genre.
I would also love to get into a miniatures combat game. I used to play confrontation, but the newest version sucks, the company has totally lost the ability to support their game, and of course, no one plays it. I also got discouraged when I lost half my goblin army in a move.
I started playing RPGs in 1980, with Keep On The Borderlands. I have played D&D, Top Secret, Gamma World, Traveller, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spycraft, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, D20 modern, GURPS, Marvel Superheros, Imagine, Vampire, Mage, and probably others I am forgetting about. But real life and being a grown up got in the way, and I haven't played an RPG in some time and want to get back into it. I have a bookself full of gaming material that sitting unused. Once I feel like I have a little current experience, I will run a game, probably a modern fantasy/espionage game using Spycraft/FantasyCraft that has been rolling around in my head.
I used to be into going to SF conventions, but again, real life got in the way. Then about 5 years ago my wife and I started going to GenCon. Less parties, and no media guests, but plenty of gaming. This year we are dragging about 6 of our friends with us to gencon.
I can host games. I have a clean well lit basement with good tables for games. It's easier to host than it is to get a babysitter. If you have a kid, my 7 year old would love the company.
I do host a board games night every week. Board games are easy because you don't have to get people to commit to showing up on a regular basis. We have over 100 games on the shelf, and are happy to teach people. There's someone learning a new game every week. Check out our facebook group.
