    About Me
    On the first day, there was Fighting Fantasy
    On second day, there was AD&D Goldbox games
    On the third day, there was Bard's Tale
    On the fourth day, there was Ultima

    All days combine into summarising my introduction to the eternal journey of our genre. We explore worlds!
    I found RPGWatch via the Codex, the source of unending bile, vitriol, neurosis and esoteric insight.
