My name is Rob. I am a geek living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I’ve been playing roleplaying games for just over a decade. I started out playing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition, and stuck with D&D into 3.0, 3.5 and 4e, with a few of White Wolf’s World of Darkness games sprinkled in.  I’ve since moved on to everything from Savage Worlds, ICONS, and Jaws of the Six Serpents to Fiasco and Starblazer Adventures. My current gaming obsessions are Marvel Heroic Roleplaying and Dungeon World.

Along the way I’ve played some card games (mostly Magic the Gathering), War Games (mostly Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000; the current obsession is Fantasy Flight’s X-Wing Miniatures Game), Video Games (wasn’t Mass Effect great?) and Board Games (go play Lords of Waterdeep, Settlers of Catan or Arkham Horror, they are a blast!).

If you really drill down to my roots though, it all started with Steve Jackson’s and Ian Livingstone’s Fighting Fantasy books.


I’ve had a long fascination with how things work, and why things work; when it comes to gaming, I’ve always fallen on the “System Matters” side of the debate (not more than setting and players and all those sorts of things, but it is an important variable.). I’ve enjoyed reading other’s thoughts on the topic and think there will be some value, if only therapeutic, to throw my voice into the mix.

Additionally, a lot of the games I have been running have a strong culture of fan-made adventures and content, and I plan to post some of the stuff I’ve created for others to make use of as they see fit.

Wait… Thac0s at Midnight? Huh?

mmm. thac0s…
