Default Always a GM, never a player

I assume that this is a good place for intros.

Back in the golden age of RPGing, an unlikely group of misfits coalesced in a rural community of the northern Delmarva to futz around with this novel new pastime. Starting out with D&D, and later largely switching to Runequest, they tended to be sword and sorcery inclined.

However, one of them was an inveterate Trekkie, and discovered a curious game that came in little black books. Enter me. Soon I was designing subsectors, ships and other sunderies to augment my passion for sci fi. Even though I was, and still am, a Trekkie, I was looking for something a little grittier. Something more in the realm of Alien, where characters cussed, smoke, drank, etc. like real people tend to do. Traveller was a perfect fit for my vision of the far future.

MegaTraveller, and DGP books, took it to the next level, and while advancing "canon" materials had their influence, it was still a good fit with my vision.

Alas, time and the real world intruded and most of my players have now scattered to the winds or have passed on. In all the time we had, my recollection was that I was the designated sci fi referee, and have never played a single game as a PC. Though there are no players anymore, I still find myself designing the odd ship on occasion, and I'm in awe of the online tools that are available for gaming the Traveller universe. Would that I had such shiny baubles back in the day.

Thank you for having me here.
