"The day you stop believing in magic is the day it stops happening to you"



Welcome to my humble profile. Thanks for your visit, and enjoy your stay here!



If you're an RPGer and also love The Gamers franchise, please, check out this Zombie Orpheus initiative ZOE Phase II

I'm relatively new to boardgames, so my collection is pretty small. The first game I ever played was Fury of Dracula (second edition), but what really made me part of the boardgame world was Arkham Horror. My first owned game is Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation, which was my birthday present, and the first game I actually bought was Battlestar Galactica.

My Top 10 are games I ever played and adored, my Hot 10 are games I would love to play (not necessarily own them, but one usually includes the other )

I'm currently more into RPGs though, I'm a hardcore fan of Dungeons & Dragons (4th Edition).


Finished PBFs:

DMing Westmarch - IC (D&D 4e, now paused after one of the adventures was finished)

Skadi Farbauti, Orc Cleric in The Mystery of the Three Horseshoes (IC) (D&D 4e, stalled)

Peregrin "Grin" Gamgee in The Fellowship of Esgaroth [OOC] (The One Ring)

Bestla Silvertongue (Fighter Dwarf) in Table 1: Into the Shadowhaunt - IC (D&D 4e)

Himinglæva "Gerd" Hightower (Goliath Warden) in The Year of Awakening - IC (D&D 4e, stalled)

And I took over Amiri (Human Barbarian) in [IC] Black Fang's Dungeon (Pathfinder) Who'd have thought it, I was playing a Human!

Victor Naida in Coal Mine Seven [IC] (Trail of Cthulhu)

Co-DMing The Wizard's Tower - IC (Table 1) and The Wizard's Tower - IC (Table 2) (D&D 4e)

DMing No Name Adventure - IC Thread (D&D 4e)

Skadi Waltraute, Orc Cleric in War of the Burning Sky (IC) - Episode 1 (D&D 4e, stalled)

Silvertongue in [IC] My Little Pony - A place of our own [2014 PbF Newbie Initiative] (Fate Accelerated, stalled)

I would like to thank my geekbuddies:

Why should I fret in microcosmic bonds / That chafe the spirit, and the mind repress / When through the clouds gleam beckoning beyonds / Whose shining vistas mock man's littleness?
