I play D& 5e, along with Warhammer Kill Team. I’d like to get into World of Darkness too

I mostly play Pathfinder.  I run a 1e campaign, and am looking to switch to 2e for the next one.  I do play in another group that usually does Pathfinder 1e, but right now we're in a 5e campaign (First time for me for 5e!).  Since quarantine started we've been using Roll20, but recently I started looking into using FoundryVTT, which I've been liking a lot!

I have a D& starter kit that I got as a (late) birthday present from friends who are no longer in my life now. We parted on bitter terms and I'm kinda ambivalent on continuing to use it, but hey. It'll further my ambitions as a storyteller, one way or another. 


Way back when, I did dabble in D& with some friends but it wasn't until around the time I joined an ongoing campaign at my local library that I was about it (started up in late 2019/early 2020 before Covid stopped everything.)

D& 5e fan here. Spent many hours playing it and making characters, although I haven't been in an actual group in months. (╥﹏╥)

Also: always interested in trying some other systems, as well as making my own.

I've been playing RPGs for 27 years, and writing them for 21 years. My artwork appears in a few different mainstream books, like Post-Apocalyptic Hero (for Hero Games) and Big Eyes, Small Mouth (Guardians of Order, originally).


I co-founded Silver Gryphon Games with a friend, and over the course of a decade, we published a few dozen books. One of those is my fantasy RPG Ingenium.

I'm working on a couple new systems now. One is a second edition of Ingenium that may or may not ever be released publicly, and the other is Vox Draconis: Kingdoms of Stone and Fire. VD is available for free on my website, though it's not complete yet: https://benovermyer.com/page/voxdraconisksf/

I play D& 5e as a player and am a very very new DM. 


My current PC, a sailor, has a magic pipe. Think Gandalf blowing a boat of smoke, but the boat leaves behind a trail of smoke. A fog cloud situation.

Love D& 5e the most simply because I have the most experience with it, but god WH 40k's Dark Heresy and Only War are fun as hell. I've only ever DM'ed for D& 5e and man, some wacky shit has happened at the table back when I was inexperienced and stupid. Like when I allowed a player to use a homebrewed D10,000 table for wild magic, which when he rolled a 1 resulted in the sun exploding. On the player side of things, one of my first characters was a kenku, and I mocked an Ogre whose brother I just killed, which enraged it. They proceeded to kill my Kenku in one hit, with a lifespan of just half a session.

I like apocolypse world, would really like to play more blades in the dark. Ran 2 long term rogue trader games using FF ruleset rather than most recent ones.


Only game i've not played a lot of was D and D or what I would consider AD& as I played a lot of basic rules 2nd edition and 3rd

Wargaming I've played a few star treck one i forget name of many years ago, recently X wing and Warhammers_ necromunda, 40k and warcry. I like Warcry for speed and pace of game but have a lot of white scars, orks and fair bit of tau for 40k

I play D& (5e) and Pathfinder (1e). Both have pros and cons, but I love them both. I hope to start DM'ing D& when my country reopens, but am very nervous about it... tips are welcome!

Just started running Call of Cthulhu a couple weeks ago. We're three scenarios in and holy shit do I love this game! I like DnD but CoC is slowly taking its place. I haven't even thought about a DnD campaign in weeks. 


Also, Ive never been DM  for a DnD session, but I've been Keeper for the last two CoC sessions and I think I'm going to keep doing it. It's super fun. I love watching them figure out the little bits of story.
