Hi! As you probably guess form my login and this topic name I'm cosmic avatar of other Prime World great being - Boo, the miniature giant space hamster. Here is my patron with his dedicated follower.



Myself, I look more like this...



Evil Grin Evil Grin Evil Grin

Okay, end of laught. I'm 25 year old Game Master with fondness to D&D, new World of Darkness and Savage Worlds. I'm also have Master degree in Computer Science Engerning. But still jobless... Sad

In meanwhile I don't run or sometimes play RPGs or fixing computers, i'm being just giant geek playing video games, reading comic books, watching horror movies and being Internet LGBT activist. I'm living with my boyfriend in city of Lublin in Poland.

And now a bit of my history with D&D and Greyhawk setting. My first RPG book ever readied were Players Handbook to AD&D 2nd Editon from my older brothers. Shortly after I got my first PC computer and played all days Baldur's Gate. But Forgotten Realms were too "childish" for me to run them in long term. When 3ed come here in Polish, I was having some info about Greyhawk from English materials. And then our country D&D distirubtor published Gazetter and I soaked it and all supplements lore. Now I run GH games as D&D Next Playtests I'm taking part. Cool

From one (half) Pole to another, welcome to Canonfire! wyrdhamster. You are in good company with science geeks aplenty prowling these boards, including yours truly. Happy I, too, am not enamored of Forgotten Realms, mainly because of all the 'power gaming' it tends to instill in people. When you mentioned playing World of Darkness, are you referring to the WhiteWolf gaming system???

happy you found us,

-Lanthorn

Yes, especially "2nd version" - Mage: Awakening, Changeling: The Lost, Promethean: The Created.

Thank you! I don't think for the life of me that I could ever spell that correctly! The only Polish I can write (I hope) is, (semi) appropriately, "Wesolych swiat!" Is that right?!

For a long time I played and ran some campaigns of Vampire: the Masquerade and also Werewolf: the Apocalypse. Many good and fond memories with that game system... Happy

again, welcome aboard,

Jason

Without Polish characters, but mostly correct. Smile Proper form is "Wesołych świąt!" Cool

I loved the White Wolf system, played Vampire, Werewolf, and mage myself, welcome to the forum. I also love the Minsc/Boo references, some of the best characters in a video game ever.
