Public tabletop gamer biography

avatar Alcamtar


I've been gaming since 1981, when I bought the old Moldvay D&D red box at Fred Meyer.

Over the years I've run campaigns including B/X D&D, Fudge, Savage Worlds, Dungeon World, Fantasy Hero, 3E D&D, Pathfinder, and Aria:Worlds (translated into Fudge). Campaigns have run anywhere from a few months to a couple of years, usually playing weekly. I have also played a lot of short and one-off games.

My preferences are for:

  • loose fast-paced action, rather than lovingly detailed wargames
  • lightweight rules that get out of the way
  • system that takes a back seat to the fiction
  • player-driven sandboxes, rather than stories... I love exploration games
  • gritty low- to mid-level play where consequences and death are possible
  • my D&D tastes run toward the OSR. My favorite OSR games are B/X D&D, Basic Fantasy, Fantastic Heroes & Witchery, Elegia, and ACKS.

On my bucket list:

  • Fudge. Pretty happy to use it for anything. I have some ideas for mingling with elements of Apocalypse World and D&D, and would love to explore this further.
  • Dungeon Crawl Classics looks like a lot of fun
  • hex-crawling the Wilderlands of High Fantasy
  • something Traveller-esque. Could be Traveller, Bulldogs, Star Hero, Fudge or whatever. I love the mercenary mercantile frontier universe, and love Traveller's concept of hex-crawling through space.
  • lost worlds pulp (Last of Mystery for Hero! or Savage? or Fudge...)
  • a West Marches style sandbox game using ACKS. Genre similar to Elegia RPG ("8-bit fantasy")
  • an old west / victorian horror crossover game
