I am a longtime roleplayer 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, and many others that are out of print. I enjoy system-based games and free-form story-based roleplays that have an emphasis on character development and plot.

Currently, I'm running a private invitation-only small-town drama type game set in the 1980s here on RP Repository and play in a 5th Edition D&D group in-person on Friday nights. I occasionally run and play in games on Roll20.net.

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 the people that I work with. If you are not an exceptional writer and a seasoned roleplayer, we will probably not be a good fit for one another. One-line posters and those whose writing looks like a text message need not apply.

If you're interested in doing a roleplay, I am going to ask for at least one writing sample from you. You need to be able to write in a third-person, past-tense style. Please don't ask to work with me if you don't understand what that means.

I expect those that I work with to have an in-depth understanding of the character they are playing and the setting. Please have firsthand knowledge about the subject matter of the game or be willing to do research using Google, Wikipedia, or YouTube so that you can write in a believable way. Please don't choose a role or background that is beyond your abilities to portray accurately and don't be generic. Flaws are what make a story interesting but your character should be well balanced. You need to create a character with strengths as well as weaknesses.

If the game uses a store-bought system, I expect participants to read up on the game world and be familiar with the details of the important NPCs, places, events, and history of the setting. I will ask you detailed questions to establish whether or not you know your stuff.

Detail and believability are critical. If your writing and roleplaying skills are not up to par, I will discontinue working with you. On that same note, you must be available to post on a regular basis. I expect anyone that I write with to be able to post a minimum of once a week and to let me and other players know if you are not going to be available for a period of time (you're going on vacation, school or work is particularly hectic for the next week, etc.) If you decide to leave a game, it is simple courtesy to let the people involved know and not simply disappear. I will always let my fellow players know if I am quitting a roleplay and give an explanation for my departure.

I am willing to participate in Epic Week and other site-wide special events as time permits.
