I am a longtime role player that has been doing pen & paper RPGs since the early 1980s using a variety of systems. Some of the games I've run or played in include the original Dungeons & Dragons game, AD&D 2nd ed, D&D 5th Ed, GURPS, Pathfinder, The old Palladium System, Cyberpunk, D20 Modern, classic Star Wars (the old West End Games version), Tales of the Floating Vagabond, Doctor Who, Top Secret SI, and many others.

I enjoy system-based games, and free-form story-based roleplays that have an emphasis on character development and plot. I also occasionally do system-based games on Roll20.net in addition to a weekly live game on Friday nights.

I prefer story-based freeform roleplays when doing play-by-post roleplaying. Trying to use rules systems and dice to playout combats are cumbersome and tedious in a PBP. Rules heavy games are best saved for real-time environments such as playing in-person or role20.net. I am okay with some light dice use to randomize things or very basic rules systems in some cases.

Preferred genres for PBP:

    Action
    Superhero
    Modern-day drama/Slice of life
    Mystery/Detective
    Spies/Undercover/Espionage
    Sci-fi
    Fantasy (either free-form or rules lite for PBP)
    Humor (Hitchhiker's Guide, Red Dwarf, Python, Black Adder)

Not into/or don't like for PBP:
    Romance
    Porn
    Sadism
    Vampires
    Furries
    Anime
    Anything that isn't plot/story focused


I generally prefer one-on-one games. I will consider small group stuff but no more than four players.

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU CONTACT ME ABOUT JOINING A GAME:

Although anyone is free to send me friend requests, I only join games with adults. Please, no requests from anyone under 18 years old or games that include minors.

I am going to be upfront. I have very high standards and expectations for my writing partners. If you have questions about anything below, please feel free to ask. I'm always happy to clarify or talk to someone via PM to determine if we're a good fit.

I prefer to work with seasoned players who are experienced with PBP and older writers (generally age 30 and up). Roleplay experience is more important than age. If you are a beginner with roleplaying or writing, we will not be a good fit for one another, regardless of your age.

If you're interested in doing a roleplay, I am going to ask for at least one writing sample from you. One-line posters and those whose writing looks like a text message need not apply. You need to be able to write in a third-person, past-tense style and write articulately.

Here is a list of the qualities I look for in a writing partner:
    You have stability in your life and can post regularly, at least once a week. 2-3 times per week is desirable. Everyone needs a break from time to time or has things come up. However, if you have a lot going on and regularly take lengthy hiatuses, then we're probably not going to work well together.
    You have a good command of grammar, vocabulary, and spelling. Minor mistakes are okay, but if you are not a strong writer, we're probably not going to work well together.
    You can write interesting, well-balanced, believable characters with both faults as well as strengths. That means either having first-hand knowledge of the character's background or are willing to research to write believably and won't take on a character that's beyond your abilities to portray reasonably accurately.
    You are willing to do research or have experience in the subject matter of the game and setting using Google, Wiki, YouTube, etc. You either know or are willing to learn basic terminology and have a good overview of relevent subject matter such as your character's jobs, hobbies, and a good understanding of the location and time period the game is set in.
    You collaborate well and are willing to explore options OOC in the story and consider different ideas as opposed to just making it up as we go.
    You proactively contribute ideas to the story, and your character's actions help advance the plot. You won't play a Mary Sue or just follow along and give canned responses and generic actions.
    You are easy to work with and aren't going to be standoffish or argumentative.

I am happy to work with anyone on special site-wide one-off events such as Halloween and Epic week.
