I'm a forty two year old kid who lives with a lot of pain due to many injuries. I rarely leave my apartment, so BGG and RPGG are life savers to me. I've had 9 knee surgeries, two hernia surgeries, a bone tumor surgery and a stroke.
I play tons of Play-by-Forum games! In fact I am currently running All Flesh Must be Eaten & TOON! And playing in 3 games, such as Shotgun Diaries, Restoration of Lardragel & Project Ninja Panda Taco!
I've helped start one gaming group, but moved away from the area, and been a part of two others. This March was the one year anniversary of the death of my best friend "Chezzilla" here on BGG or "Greg Duff" as many of you know him.
I love bringing new people into the gaming "sport". I've gotten many people hooked on playing games and have been a Comic Book Store manager, where I made sure the employees could teach many games to the customers!
I was homeless at one point in my life, and it was the people from BGG that kept me alive. They bought all of my games and one person, who didn't know me from anything, gave me a Large amount of money to get back on my feet! I've never experienced anything like it.
I now do my best to "Pay It Forward" to anyone that I can help, even if it is in little ways like taking time to walk them through the confusing parts of BGG/RPGG/VGG or giving them 30 geekgold for an avatar!
I'm currently writing & designing creatures for the RPGG sponsored Project O.L.I.V.E.
