"Because the ultimate purpose of crime is to establish the endless empire of crime."

The badge and overquote above are from one of my favorite movies, from one of my favorite directors: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse, Fritz Lang, 1933.

I am a teacher. I like poetry, science fiction and visual art, and have tried my hand at all of these, with relative levels of achievement, and an ongoing sense of fulfilling sturm & drang.

I started gaming in high school, in the late 80's, back in Kalamazoo, MI, with a little AD&D here and lots of Champions/Hero System there. Gave it up (sort of, discounting the rich world of computer gaming) when I moved to the city. Chicago, namely, then New York. For my purpose here, that describes about a two-decade break from gaming.

I woke up in 2010, in Amherst, MA, to find: well, all of this. Gaming seems in many respects a much livelier art than those I'm most familiar with, and I'm enjoying the ongoing discoveries I'm making in this world.

So, why are so many of my game comments and numbered reviews so disproportionately peppy? Mainly because I tend to review only the games I keep. This may change if I ever have the time to review some of the crap I get rid of.

I stopped recording plays almost a year ago. Once it was neat to watch the numbers rack up, and I'm glad that function is there, but after a while it was just another checkbook to balance.
