My gaming journey began in my freshman year of college. I met a couple of guys who told me about the games they were playing and invited me to come and observe a session. I showed up, the DM told me about his world and what was going on with the characters. Then he handed me a character sheet and told me to make a character. I hadn't intended to leap in head first. I had only been away from home for a little over a week. I didn't know these people, but I figured 'what the heck' and did it.
On that evening, Virginia Maddock was born. Maddock, code name Sly, was an awesome spy who could create flawless forgeries and steal planes right out from under the enemy's nose. It was fun and left me totally willing to try the other game they were playing.
That first game was Crimson Skies. The second was DnD3.5. I have also played Werewolf, Serenity, BattleTech, 1 whole session of Pathfinder and some Spycraft/d20 Modern/Future games. Mostly it has been 3.5.
A year or two ago I decided I was going to come up with a way to make DnD classless. I kept changing things I didn't like and adding new things I thought were cool and one day I looked at it and realized that it really was not DnD anymore. I started looking up game design and discovered the online world of rpgs.
After spending a significant amount of time lurking, I have finally decided to join in on the fun.
Here goes nothing...
