Musician, punk, and activist, I also happen to be a huge nerd. Star Wars, Spider-man, and of course, TTRPGs are my nerd-vices.
I play D&D (Basic, 1st, 2nd, and 3.x), Pathfinder, Palladium Fantasy, Rifts, Ninjas and Superspies, TMNT/After the Bomb, GURPS, oWoD (big fan of Werewolf), Star Wars (the old D6 system is my favorite, but I also enjoy the d20/SAGA versions), aaaaand..... well, I can't think of any more, but I'm open to trying other games as well. I might even reluctantly try playing D&D 4e, but after reading through the books, I already think I'm not gonna like it, never been an MMO fan, and it just screams (to me) WoW on paper.
I like a good mix of roleplaying and combat, and get equally deep into both, which is to say f'ing immersed. I don't play my character, I become him. Even for one shot games I usually come up with at least a halfway decent background and personality. I like to play characters that don't fit in quite right, be that because of an exotic race, criminal background, or just someone with a perpetual 'outsider' complex. The rogue that refuses to join the Thieves' Guild, the barbarian in the middle of the urban campaign, the aaracokra or thri-kreen spearman, the cast out sorcerer, or just the halfling that got pushed a little to far and went nuts. I tend to play combat and/or stealth oriented characters, though the occassional caster isn't beyond me.
My love of roleplaying aside, I LOVE TACTICS! I revel in the decisions and actions that it takes to win a combat. I know the system, and how to make an "optimized" character, but I always do within my concept, even if that means that I won't actually be optimized. I'm not a munchkin, I'm a roleplayer that also enjoys the rules and what can be done with them.
Overall I'm looking for either earlier edition AD&D (1st or 2nd), or Pathfinder games, but I'm up for anything interesting really. Not really into PbP, too slow. I'd like to get into a d20pro game of some sort really, or something else with a VTT, or of course a real life game too, but I don't have much time for that.
