    Well I play.....D&D (yup, no big suprise there ), and I play Neverwinternights, and Battlefierd 1942, BF2, and BF2142, and I also play the Dungeons & Dragons Skirmish Game.

    As for reading, I read mostly fantasy, some Sci-Fi, and the best alternate history books I read are Harry Turtledove's WWII books dealing with an alien invasion at the height of the war.

    Post Yeah I loved the Alvin the Maker Books

    But really after Red Prophet, it kinda went south.

    I loved how Napolean has a camio appearance and gives a "charm" to LaFayette, saying that his enormous popularity as a General and French leader was due to an enchanted charm he carried.

    Excellent series of books though, Orson Scott Card is great for characterization.

    You might look at the Exalted Compendium Redux for questions about the game. I suppose I can also pimp my own intro adventure, Forgotten Suns, which also contains some of my map work.

    For Shadowrun, Dumpshock is a good place to start.

    These kinds of posts are always fun, so hmmmm, letís seeÖ

    Itís probably best if I give a bit of personal background before talking about what Iím playing. Iím female, 49 years old, been married to the same guy for 24 years, have two sons aged 23 and 19. Iíve been a stay at home mom for 22 years, but before that I worked as FORTRAN programmer and also did technical writing on the side.

    So, Iím an old timer and my gaming preferences reflect this.

    On the game side of things, Iím the primary DM for our weekly gaming night, and weíve been playing almost every week since 1983. I DM using a homebrew concoction of rules that combine 1st & 2nd AD&D, my hubby DMs occasionally using the original Rolemaster rules (you know the very, very original ones from the 80ís) and my older son DMs a 3rd edition campaign for us from time to time. We also translate some parts of our pen and paper game to table top war gaming using War Law for Rolemaster and the 2E Battle System (with homebrew modifications of course) for D&D.

    Iíve also been an Assistant DM(builder/scripter) for the Neverwinter Nights 1 persistent world at A Land Far Away: www.alandfaraway.org where I was one of the major forces in bringing an Underdark server to the PW, and am currently signed up to work on their NWN2 uunderdark server, though free time has been scarce for me lately and I havenít participated much.

    Other than that I read fantasy fiction, play free form play by post games occasionally because I love to write, and generally spend any time thatís left mapping out my campaign world, gardening, or just hanging out with family and friends.

    Basically, I an old time gamer with a lot of free time on my hands to dedicate to gaming.

    How funny! When I was originally looking for more Exalted material/information I actually found your Forgotten Suns site and already pillaged it of everything I could.

    I will definitely check out the Exalted Compendium forums when/if I can convince my group to give it a shot. Thanks for the link!

    Strangely, I don't play any RPG's. I play CRPG's (single player) when I get a chance. I am a collector more than anything in the RPG arena, owning a bit over 2,000 original mint pieces from the D&D (pre AD&D) era of TSR and Judges Guild. If it is available, I have one or two. If it is not available, I still likely have one! It took 25 years of active collecting and sifting through shops and online to get to where I am.

    And as for me, I am 40, married for 15 years with a boy (9) and a girl (6), two dogs (mixed coon hound / lab) two cats, and a currently only one really big fish tank (200 gallons) but generally about 4 (I just can't keep them all up). Professionally I have been an EVP/COO type in the software/IT services industry for a bit over a decade. I chase kids, read, write, collect things, and make maps.

    I play my homebrewed sci-fi game. I've been running it in one form or another for the past 15 years and have even run a nearly year long session on OpenRPG.

    I'm actually currently running a session in-person for someone who has created many different characters to play different sides of the story.

    I've also played a session of Werewolf.

    As far as electronic (console, computer) RPGs, I've only played FF7, FF9 and the online FF at a friends place, FlyFF, & the Diablo franchise. I still prefer to think and write instead of staring at a screen.

    Other than that... I'm pretty mundane at just about any other system, but I do like lurking in games regardless of the system.
