See? I can Be Sociable...
« on: April 01, 2012, 09:28:18 AM »
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

Welcome, fellow old-schooler! Great to have you. Enjoy your stay!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Welcome, welcome, welcome, and, speaking of meat, have a fatayer :D

They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Welcome aboard, Stack-a-smoke Jones!

Pariah, That meat and bread pocket thing looks delicious. Is it a calzone?
