My motto of the Moment: Old is a state of mind…you cannot stop aging, but you do not have to be old.
A role-playing gamer and game master since Basic D&D / AD&D back in my high school days. Took a ‘brief’ (as in around 26 years, give or take) hiatus* from RPG gaming starting somewhere around the time AD&D 2e released in 1989 and got back into the hobby a few years ago. Ended up with an AD&D campaign with a few of the folks I gamed with back in high school…and it has not lost its magic, not in the least.
Update: The AD&D 1e campaign I DM will be 5 years old in April 2021!
I own and have played a lot of the first / early editions of many RPG’s still around today (and quite a few that are no longer published). Favorites from the RPG games would be AD&D 1e, Champions / Hero System, Justifiers, (WEG) Paranoia, (FASA) Star Trek and (Classic) Traveller.
Also been playing board games since the SPI / Metagaming MicroGames / Avalon Hill era. Favorites among board games would be Blitzkreig, Ogre / GEV, Grav Ball, Planet Busters and Talisman.
* – While I was not playing for those years due to lack of time and other players, I still frequented hobby shops and bought games to read and figures to paint. Some, I have still to play / paint.
