Hey everybody, I'm Antifinidictor the Indubitably Anvilicious!

I was introduced to tabletop RPGs four or five years ago.  Since then I've participated in two full campaigns and multiple one-shots.  I have DM'd two and a half homebrew one shots myself, and I'm considering DM'ing a longer campaign in the near future.  My favorite aspect of campaigning is exploring the lore and story behind the DM's world, although solving (or designing) clever puzzle dungeons is a close second.  A friend introduced me to this site a year and a half ago, although I didn't get around to joining until now.

The best campaign I played was a one-shot where we explored the tomb of a conqueror as undead minions of a band of evil adventurers.  My favorite campaign idea had players hopping between broken realities on behalf of a suspicious computer entity.

Also: I'm working on a short story for the latest Excursion from the Citadel.  It needs some additional work but I hope it will be interesting.

Welcome to the Citadel!
I'm impressed that you filled out an entire story in a single night. Looking forward to reading it.

RPG Facts
  • I've been playing RPGs for over 15 years and DMing/GMing on and off for most of them.
  • Most of my experience has been with D&D and Pathfinder, but I've played some number of indie RPGs (like one system that was based on the Conan the Barbarian series).
  • Favorite campaign idea I've run - probably the one where all the PCs were civilized orcs trying to colonize a land that could mutate under their feet. Channeling a big fey vibe there.

Other Facts
  • Found this place via a friend who's been pretty active on here.
  • Been on and off working on a novella based on Dresden Codak's Clockwork Empire idea http://dresdencodak.tumblr.com/post/47724463171/inspired-by-anita-sarkeesians-video-game-tropes. Since Breath of the Wild has been released we'll see how much more I work on that, almost done with the game.
  • Just wrote a fairly directed and cohesive story for the latest Excursion from the Citadel, all tonight, in 1714 words. I like that I've achieved this but I'll probably need some padding... and of course there will be a lot of editing. Because that's what you do.
I would say for the entertainment industry, the emergence of the plutocrats there is best represented by acts such as Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Dr Dre, where the artist is just a keystone in a much larger enterprise. They aren't just selling albums and concert tickets, they have clothing lines, signature electronics and gadgets, and their personal brand attached to a dozen different things completely unrelated to music. Another event is for celebrity entertainers to slowly become involved with the operation of government. While this might seem a bit tinfoil hat, but just how many times did the Obamas entertain Jay-Z and Beyonce in the White House?

Dr Dre doesn't care if you buy his albums or not, he's made vastly more money selling Beats headphones than he ever did rapping.

Dolly Parton has her own amusement and theme park, and is vastly more visible and involved in that part of my state, moreso than any government agency. That became apparent when after the Sevier county fires were put out, Dolly showed up with checks in hand to hand out to the people who needed them, while FEMA was busy trying to figure out where their ass was.
