First gaming experience was a very sorry DnD campaign in high school back in the 80's. After that, my first real gaming was in a very good Tolkeinesque Rolemaster campaign that was truly memorable and got me hooked. It was good, but the very best RPG I ever played in was a 7th Sea campaign that ended a few years ago, lasted many years, and is chronicled from beginning to end in my character's journals ... which, printed out, take up several three ring binders. Fabulous game. I recently took up GMing and have learnt that I much prefer GMing PbPs to tabletop games. Haven't decided if I'm any good yet ....
