I like to provide quality games and I work hard to deliver them. Sometimes I am successful at this, other times I am not. But I do look for people interested in adding to the quality of a game experience by bringing to the table their own vision and ideas, which will undoubtedly make the story shine. I would rather have players with a balance between role-playing and action, but I welcome everyone so long as they welcome my style of play. I do not do dress-up RPG; the level of intensity in my campaigns is limited to a great story, outside of that, my "acting & make-up" is thin, ha-ha. I am just looking to have a good time, meet friends, and enjoy a creative game that I love, which I have been playing since college.

I will say that I am not a rules fanatic. I believe the system is secondary to the story. With that said, I like to keep a level of fairness, which the system does help to maintain. I write my own material and I make custom-worlds, both fantasy, sci-fi, and hybrid. My most current world, Halikar, has had several revisions and this, most-up-to-date version, is by far my best and most complete (I am still working on it, but it is very playable and the genre is looking rather hybrid-style).

Anyway, if you want to meet one of the good guys, shoot me a private message; we'll get together for some coffee and discuss characters and plots.
About Me
"Who am I? I am a voice of creation, for I make up worlds and stories of times that never were but exist, nonetheless, within my mind. I am a mirror of what is, for through my stories I reflect a vision of our world stretched and warp, yet all the same, true to its likeness. I am the eyes of what was, what could be, what may yet be, and what destiny awaits us all. Who am I? I am a Storyteller; the question is—who are you?"
I love to write and I enjoy the arts. I was a former illustrator that never quite made it out of the launch pad because I knew it would not be my life. Perhaps I was too lazy, or maybe I did not believe in myself, but I do know that it was a period of my life, where regardless of having taken a turn left when I should have gone right, my steps led me to who I am today, and I am happy. I am Latino, originally from Puerto Rico before I came to Brooklyn to study art at Pratt Institute. From there I became a Graphic Designer, where I learned a lot about the industry. But I was not happy.

I continued my studies and gained my certification to teach the arts at Queens College. I taught for two years and a half while I finished my Masters, but I was not pleased with the politics of the public education system, so I resigned, and did not finish my masters (I had been going to Stony Brook). I, out of left-field, decided to join the pastry world and today I am cake decorator, and I am satisfied with this. The pay is not nearly what I made in the past, but I am okay.

I married a beautiful woman who is an excellent English teacher and far smarter than I will ever be. With her I have two kids, a house, and two dogs. It is surreal to have gone from being an artist near the city to Mr. Suburb in Long Island, a place in which I had never thought I would end up. Today, I am comfortably enjoying a quiet life, happy with my family, less happy with the state of our world, but fighting to ensure my children become better people than I was and smarter, for if I am happy as I am, I want them to be in bliss. Today, I teach them to be good wardens of our world, and if I succeed in this mission/hope of mine, then my life would be fulfilled.

DnD 4E Reactions; a custom system?

by eltomate on 01-30-2009 at 07:18 AM
So I am trying to figure out whether or not I am in love with DnD 4E. I can't exactly say that it has been the best 'treat' to read through the books! Some of it has been pretty thick actually. But I do like some of the changes and the style. I don't like how 'canned' things feel. I almost get the sensation that if I take something out, the rest of the system falls apart. Is it just me?

Anyway, I am going to use it for my new campaign; I think it is definitely an improvement in technicalities
