Dear Secret Swedish Santa-

I received your gifts! Thanks so much for your generosity. It is truly appreciated. Here's the link to my post on the "received" thread.

The Thread

Thanks again-

What am I up to?

I'm busy playing in PbFs currently (see below) and GMing a Newbie PbF game. I just finished making a database of all my Call of Cthulhu scenarios with information about difficulty, number or recommended players, possible hooks/connections, and a whole bunch of other random information. This should make it easy to run a campaign of CoC in PbF in the future and have a nice framework for making everything flow! I'm very addicted to Eldritch Horror and Pathfinder CG right now.

How did I end up here?

I have been playing board games for as long as I can remember starting with Checkers, Chess, Monopoly, and Life. I gradually worked my way to less mainstream choices. My earliest non-mainstream game was Dragon Strike. In high school, I developed an infatuation with music and did less board gaming. In college, I picked it up again when someone introducing me to Munchkin. After leaving college, I stumbled upon BGG and dove head first back into the hobby and haven't looked back. My progression of gaming has gone something like this:

Arkham Horror
Ghost Stories
Race for the Galaxy
Mansions of Madness
Mage Knight
Lord of the Rings: LCG
Pathfinder CG

Mixed in with all this and my new found obsession with the Cthulhu Mythos, I finally found an outlet for my secret craving for playing tabletop RPGs. I took part in the 2013 RPGGeek Newbie Initiative and have been playing PbF RPGs ever since.
