About Me: Age: 36
Gender: Male, Heterosexual
Contrary to the rumors, I'm not psychotic.
Disenchanted with modern life.
Vastly superior to an insect, but not worthy of licking the dust off your feet.
...and other obligatory baggage.

"What was I saying?...Oh well, I'm sure you got the point." ["I hope", I say to myself as I observe the glazed look on the other person's face]—myself (Happens so frequently that I don't remember when the first time I said it was. Certainly from sometime in childhood.)
"I know I'm putting my foot in my mouth somehow, but hey, it's chronic, what can ya do?"

Likes: I love...
...to draw and paint.
...peace and quite.
...being treated with dignity.
...brunettes over blonds.
...talking to beautiful women (though I have no interest in a relationship at this time.)
...dining at the Hard-Rock Café (Great burgers...What? What did you think I meant?)
...Carl's Junior jalapeno burgers.
..."dumbed-down" roleplaying systems (apparently I'm an idiot, or so I hear :rolleyes:).
...brainstorming for new ideas
...a warm comforter on a cold night.
...a fire in the fireplace.
...almost anything chocolate.
Dislikes: —PEOPLE WITH NO RESPECT FOR OTHERS.
—Television Executives (especially Disney).
—Skill ranks, enumeration of feats, power gamers, and elitists.
—Most trading card gamers (too much ego for such a minor pastime).
—Know-it-all's that call others know-it-all's.
—Fights in subjective discussions.
—Trigger-happy mods (A.K.A. RPG.net)
Dungeons & Dragons
Star Wars Roleplaying Games
Other Games I Play: D20 Modern/Future (Modified)
Star Frontiers, TORG
I would like to play Serenity.
To clarify my WOTC game choices: I will ONLY play SW:Saga and D&D 1st, 2nd, and 4th editions (I think 3x was the most convoluted pile ever and bred elitists. It was one step away from Universe).
There are no upcoming events for this calendar.
