Sorry for slacking, Santa and Cthanta! Thank you for Ashen Stars, 13th Age, Village and Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small. Your taunts were great and the gifts were fantastic! I will post on the geeklists in the next couple days, but wanted to make sure you knew the gifts were received.

UPDATE: Thank you also for Technoir! Got both the book and PDF.


I have been gaming my entire life. My brother and I played most of the classic board games, party games and card games while growing up. I played RPGs with friends and I was also a very active chess player for years. (If you know anything about tournament chess, my highest USCF rating was about 1700 - which is decent for a serious chess player, but nothing spectacular.)

I consider myself overeducated. I have a BA in English, an MFA in Creative Writing (poetry) and a JD degree. Currently I'm an attorney in the Washington DC area.

Right now, my interest in mostly in RPGs, though I still have a strong interest in board games. I'm working on some RPG designs and might move into board game design in the future.

What I like in an RPG: I like flexibility and the ability to tell stories. I want the game mechanics to enhance the plot and not the other way around. I love indie games.

What I like in a board game: This is harder to pin down, but I like board games that are memorable. I don't want to incrementally accrue small advantages, but I want big moments. I don't want every game to seem the same. I like interaction. I also tend to like board games where the decisions are limited to a few good choices rather than an seemingly limitless sea of mediocre choices.

My girlfriend is also a gamer and a BGG user. You can find her profile here:
