Greetings, fellow adventurers!! My name is Dave, but you can call me TK if ya want. I'm used to it.
Like many others here, I also cut my teeth on the old red box (the one with the Elmore painting). Got my set on xmas 1983 and been hooked ever since. Unfortunately, my father got bitten by the religous bug (JACK FRICKIN' CHICK!!) that was going around a few months later and I was banned from D&D. Well, that didn't stop me! I read the AD&D books in school, and when 2nd Edition came out, I bought the player's handbook and began DMing almost exclusively (I got caught buying the DMs guide though..oops! So i used the 1st Edtion DM Guide that I snuck in the house hehe)
And now here we are at 3.5. Still trying to play although real life can be brutal. All my friends have moved away, and I have two kids now (girl 2.5, boy 4 months) so my game time is limited. Until I discovered Myth Weavers. Now I can play as many games as I have time for, and I even just started running my first PbP here as well.
In addition to D&D, I also play HARP (from Iron Crown Enterprises, think of it as a lighter version of Rolemaster) and have played MERP and Rolemaster extensively in my younger years. In the 90's we played Earthdawn and Shadowrun too.
Looking forward to a great campaign with you all!
Oh, and don't worry about my father. He has since come around and accepts D&D and the fantasy literature once again.
