Hi, I'm SmokestackJones, known in some circles as DM Glen. Thought I'd add this esteemed place to my list of Places To Visit Regularly.
I've been playing RPGs since around 79-80, starting with 1E AD&D and Gamma World. I've had experience with D&D, AD&D, Champions, CoC, WFRP and maybe a few others (TOON, anyone?).
Currently I'm deeply entrenched in the OSR, my personal poison being Mentzer/RC Basic D&D, although I do occasionally dabble in 1E and 2E (I play RC D&D with my grandson sometimes, am currently involved in an Actual Play 1E Oriental Adventures game and I spent most of my formative AD&D years playing 2E). I'm also co-hosting the Save or Die Podcast
(for Basic D&D - http://saveordie.info
) and hosting THAC0's Hammer
(for 2E AD&D - http://thacoshammer.info
I'm also a dyed-in-the-wool Californian stuck in Oklahoma City, OK (The Gaming Black Hole), do voicework for audio dramas on the 'net and some stage acting.
Well, there I am, all laid out for you to dissect. Thanks for having me and I'll see you guys around here.-SJ
