In January 1984, when I was 21 years old, I began playing in an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) campaign set in the world of Tharamaylor, an invention of my first Game Master (GM), Neil Fraser.

What I didn’t realize at the time was that this nervous step into a new hobby would become a lifelong passion.

My first character was a young mage named Lissa, and my first party was a group of characters Lissa stumbled across while fleeing from her nemesis, the evil wizard Zatarn. The clich├ęs are strong in this old scenario, but it was many years ago when such things were fresh for GMs and players.

Since then, I have played in and run many role-playing games. Nearly 40 years later, I still run games the old-fashioned way, i.e. face-to-face, but now I also run games via Roll20 and Foundry. Just look for me on Roll20 here and on Foundry here.

I don’t have the words to describe the profound benefits role playing has brought to my life. My partner, lifelong friends and a wealth of positive, funny and memorable experiences have all come about through role playing.
