    With a new edition of Pathfinder on the horizon but still a distance off and D&D 5e and 13th Age still going strong, now is a good time to ask what kind of monster artwork do you prefer? Black and white on parchment or color images? Vote in our poll and tell us your thoughts here and at...

My girlfriend and I have recently moved to the lovely state of Minnesota but have not located a new group of players with whom to game with. We'd love to find a fully formed group seeking a player or two (We come with experience in D&D/Pathfinder/World of Darkness; we're not picky, we're fast learners and we come with our own dice!)

And we are both exceptionally charming & witty people.
You have been warned.
About Me
Greetings all. I’ve been at it for 16 years now, so I can honestly say that I’ve been RPing for over half of my life. My, how time flies . . . for 14 years or so, I have merely been a player. For the past two, I’ve been re-pressed (or would that be pressed again?) into service as a gamemaster.

Brief anecdote: when I was 13, I got a copy of the 2nd Edition Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide and Monstrous Manual. I forced my little brother and his best friend to create PC’s over the next several hours and we commenced playing. Five minutes later, they were both dead. Killed by a swarm of bats.

I put my DMG away for the next 14 years and got really good at being a player. Since that fateful day many years ago, I’ve played (in no particular order) Marvel Superheroes, Star Wars (both d6 and d20), GURPS, Werewolf, Vampire (in Basic Training no less, ask me about it sometime), FATE/Spirit of the Century, Everquest, Ultima Online, Dark Age of Camelot, World of Warcraft, Shadowrun, D20 and every edition of Dungeons and Dragons since 2nd. My current fave is 4E and I’m running my players through Eberron (parsed with Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, Jackie Chan Adventures [stop looking at me like that, I’m 31] and some lovely Lovecraftian mythos.) They have yet to understand how cosmically screwed they are.

In other news, I’m also the glue that holds a disparate group of about 30 roleplayers (and probably a bunch more boardgamers) together within a 25 mile limit of me. We’d (um, I would) really like another GM to abuse and to absorb into our confederation. I own my own house so we can play as late and loud as we like. Provide a game and I’ve got your players and play space. BYOD.

(Bring Your Own Dice . . . unless they’re cheat dice, in which case you should probably leave them in the car.)
