Hello Strolen, Hello Citadel
« on: October 20, 2015, 10:42:02 AM »
<slam door> *pant* *wheeze* ...
<looks up>
Did you know there is an angry barbarian horde out there?!

I am 24, male, from California. Full-time grad student. Unmarried
The name "Mageek" comes from "Magic Geek", I played a lot of MTG in high school. Now it has sort of stuck.
Started role-playing in when I was 14, my father has the original AD&D source books, and started DMing D&D 3.5 when I was 16ish.
My group enjoys puzzles more than most. I originally found the Citadel while searching for D&D riddles.
I love the site, love the system, and love sharing my work. Never hesitate to comment / let me know what you like / let me know what could be improved / let me know you used or adapted something.
Looking forward to more constructive role-playing design and development!

Systems: D&D 3.5, 5.0, & Gurps. Nowadays it is mostly pathfinder.
Minis: used to be into Warhammer 40k. Go Dark Angels.
Favorite Class: Something with lots of options. Tends to be utility casters and rogues.
Board games: Love 'em.

Great intro, Mageek. A belated welcome, and LOVE the riddle/puzzle niche you have carved out for yourself.  :)

Cheers! (Yay for original AD&D sourcebooks)

Thank you! I only recently discovered the forums.

I was curious - is there a reason behind the 30/30 posts? Is that a number to shoot for when doing categorical entries?

No particular reason behind the 30 number. It just stuck around after the initial 30-something post became popular. Use any number you like :)

The original 30 submission, 30 Barkeeps, was panned in the previous incarnation of the Citadel. I got the idea from the Vampire: the Masquerade game, where there were thirty nature/demeanors listed in the character creation section.

The idea gained popularity in the new citadel, and now there are lots of 30s. In creating thirty entries with a common theme, you are pressed out of the proverbial box and have to break new ground.
