Hello. I gamed a lot in high school, D&D mostly. But last 25 years have been filled with other things. Still loved the concept of RPGs, just didn't do anything with it.

Well, I've got 2 little people of my own now, 5 and almost 8 years old. And I'm thinking about getting back into gaming if only to have fun and make memories with my little urchins.

With more demands on my time than ever, I seriously doubt I'll participate much. Would love to though, as this seems a very, very cool place.

But I'll steal ideas all day long from here! My daughters will think I'm the most creative daddy in the whole wide world...

Hi Old Dreamer!
Your story is very sincere. I think that you are a faithful man. I'm used to a game addict,  too. So I understand your situation. I hope your family always fill up laughs and happy. Hope the relationship  between you and your lovely daughters be nice.

Hi there Old Dreamer!

I have recently began my journey upon the same path as you. I had a gaming group for 20 years, but it is gone now, dust in the wind never to be seen again.

So now I have begun GMing for my son and a pal of his, aged 10 and 13.

Their enthusiasm is truly rejuvenating.

If you stick around you will notice that many of the people here are actually not active GMs/gamers anymore but use this place to let out some creative steam. Heck, some users have never even GMd or played in a real life pen&paper RPG.

Anyway, I hope you find this place useful. There are many jewels scattered about waiting to be used in a game.

Times being what they are the wily Bartender replies: “sure, we serve anyone.”

The skeleton hands the man a silver and says: “Fine, I’ll have a pitcher of beer…and a mop”
