I am a Philosopher (Ph.D.) with interests in history (B.A. Classical Civilizations, with minors in the History of Science/Technology and the Humanities) and table-top gaming. In this blog I hope to offer my thoughts on RPG’s like Castles & Crusades, Dungeons & Dragons, philosophy, and history.
Regarding RPG’s, I am an old-school gamer who played his first game of BECMI D&D in 1980. I have since played every edition since (except for 4E), and recently moved on from D&D 5E. I am now running campaigns in my game world using Castles & Crusades while drawing upon the best of old school, new school, non-D&D RPGs, as well as my own academic research. I want to create a gaming experience that is a sort of “greatest hits” of gaming, drawing from the best ideas that are on offer.
I hope you enjoy.
