Pet Peeves

  • Cheaters & poor sports
  • Poorly designed & written rules books
  • Games where you are fighting to remember the game rules instead of competing against the players or game itself
  • Zero information decisions that could have huge impact on the game
  • Games that are too random for the time played
  • Game box inserts that don't work with the game

Convention Gaming

When attending conventions I like to run games and play in games in equal measure.  I can happily run up to two sessions a day, ideally one miniatures game and one RPG, but would be willing to shift my schedule as needed, and even include board games. 

Spaceship Combat 

 1st Preference: Arclight 
 2nd Preference: Silent Death
 3rd Pref: Start Wars X-Wing

RPGs  I'm prepared to run:

1st Preference: Savage Worlds Arclight setting

These games are all of equal preference:
  • King Arthur Pendragon, 
  • Call of Cthulhu, 
  • Elric!/Stormbringer, 
  • Paranoia, 
  • Savage Worlds Any setting
