My name is JJ and as the descriptive text in the header indicates, this blog will be devoted to the exploration and examination of my 25+ year passion for role-playing games (RPGs). I plan to start at the beginning with my introduction to RPGs by way of Dungeons & Dragons and hope to follow the timeline up through today. Along the way I'll share the games I've played and those I'm currently playing, resources I'm using and lessons I've learned from role-playing. I hope to make this a blog accessible for both the veteran and novice gamer.

While this may sound one-sided, I welcome and encourage dialog on any of the topics covered in this blog. I am not, nor will I ever claim to be the end-all, be-all authority on RPGs. Even after 30 years I am still learning new things about this hobby. It is only through open discourse and dialogue that ideas can be shared and understanding gained. I hope you'll join me on this journey of discovery by becoming a Follower of this blog. Once you do, you will be able to add your comments to any of the posts. If you have a blog of your own, you can Backlink from a follow-up post on your site and we can continue the discussion there.

In closing, I'd like to thank all the friends I've made through gaming for the countless hours of companionship, enjoyment and entertainment we've shared. I look forward to making many more friends and creating many more adventures. This blog is dedicated to those gamers who've been my support system throughout the years (thanks for helping me stay sane) as well as all those gamers and authors who have inspired me.
