Ben’s Random Ramblings Begins!

So, I thought for the first post, I would try to make it apparent who I am in a gaming sense. After all, I will be writing about various gaming related things. This is just a short post to share my bona fides as a gamer if you will. And so I want to share my gaming history with you.

I played D&D for the first time in 8th grade. It was a wonderful experience, but it would be a few years until I played a role playing game again. From my mid high school on, I began to play AD&D, Cyberpunk, WoD, Shadowrun, and anything else I could get my hands on. I have been playing role playing games ever since (approximately 23 years). I am currently working on my own game.

I also have played a lot of Magic the Gathering since high school. When I started playing, Legends had yet to come out (it came out a month or two after I started). I stopped around Ice Age. I came back to the game during Legions and have been playing through most sets since. I have competed on the Pro Tour (made money at the only Masters format Pro Tour in Philly) and made money at a Grand Prix.

I also began miniature gaming right after high school with 5th edition Warhammer Fantasy. I shortly there after began with Warhammer 40k as well during third edition. I have since stopped playing GW games, though Brendan Carrion is trying his damndest to pull me into AoS. Currently, I play Infinity, which in my opinion is the coolest and most challenging miniature game I have ever played.

I thought I would begin with this short introduction as to who I am as a gamer. After all, this should give you a background into my experiences with various systems, etc. as I ramble about them on this blog. I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
