Wow, I go away from my e-mail for a day and a whole new Yahoo Group pops up in my mailbox! Well, as the “new guy,” I think this is a great idea, and I look forward to getting to know everyone.
Yes, I do have a Web site, complete with photos:
From there, you can get to my small sites for Shadowrun, the “Forever Knight” TV series, and the beloved “Melrose Place Recaps” — my tongue-in-cheek summaries that got me in hot water with Spelling Entertainment a few years back and resulted in a Time Magazine article in ’97. (My 15 minutes of fame!)
I’m about to begin a Ravenloft campaign with the folks in my gaming group, and I may post descriptions and summaries online as well.
Like Ian, I am married to a non-gamer! Judy has been extremely patient and understanding, although there were a few strained moments several years ago when my gaming group met on Saturdays, a.k.a. Date Night!
Fortunately, since we’ve moved back to the New York/New Jersey area, my games are on Fridays, which has always been a sleepy, end-of-the-work-week night for Judy, so I can game without marital guilt. ;-)
Judy did attend many gaming sessions in the early months of our relationship, and she said she was amazed by the creativity of the people in the group. However, she’s never had the most confidence in her own creative skills, so she doesn’t think she could do it. I asked
her a couple of times to give it a shot if she felt like it, but she politely declined for that same reason. Nevertheless, I consider myself quite fortunate to have a wife who doesn’t object to (and occasionally even encourages) my gaming hobby, even when I travel to conventions and buy $40 gaming products.
