    Hello everyone another new guy here!

    I actually stumbled upon this forum completely by random. While I don't exactly remember what I was searching for, I am glad that I stumbled on this cozy forum! I took some time too look around, and it seems like my kind of place and my kind of people!

    Now onto the hard part. I have always been shit at writing about myself.

    Well, obviously I love fantasy or I wouldn't be here! My favorite outlet is tabletop role playing games. I was introduced to this wonderful world back in '96 or '97 at a young age after reading the annotated chronicles of Dragon Lance. The authors mentioned some game called Dungeons and Dragons. I remember thinking if that game was anything like these books, it had to be awesome. Boy, I had no idea what I was in for.

    Ever since then I have been hooked. While I do enjoy playing a character every now and then, I much prefer GMing. Creating worlds and adventures, crafting memorable stories that the group will reminisce on around the table for years to come, making sure everyone has a wonderful time. That is what it's all about!

    I am always working on my campaign setting, my world. I consider it a living thing, I am alwaysing thinking up new things to add to it after almost every session. It has been a project of mine for almost a decade. I honestly don't think I will ever finish it, and that is totally fine by me!

    Other than table top RPGs I enjoy reading, writing, history (focusing on military history), computers, collecting manga, fine whiskey/whisky and tobacco of all forms. I even dabble in brewing my own beer!

    Wow, this ended up far more long winded than I had expected! Sorry about that! I guess talking about myself wasn't as hard as I thought. I am very much looking forward to getting to know you all better! I really think I have found a great place here :)

    P.S. Yes, that is me in my avatar.

    I too consider my fantasy world a living thing, nothing wrong with that!

    I think, to the creator, any fantasy world is a living thing. it lives through that person as they continue to grow it into something worthwhile. I've slowly been working on mine for the last 7 years or so, though sadly being a huge gamer means I lose focus on it and sorta don't sit down with it as much as I'd like. I love the world I've created though. I love the forests, and the mountains. the folk who inhabit it. keep nurturing your living world, and have fun.

    (this was a bit longer then I wanted it to be but yea)

    Thanks for the warm welcomes! I was starting to worry that this board was dead. Good to see that it isn't!

    Sadly though, it kinda is. But give it time, people tend to come and go in spurts
