Life is a game, and I’m one heck of a player of games. Since a very young age I’ve been passionate about gaming and I play everything: Dungeons & Dragons, Settlers of Catan, Dominion, and much more. My highschool career is when my love of games, particularly analytical games, began. While years before I had been introduced to D&D by a family friend, it wasn’t until high school that I had the resources to play.
Throughout college I spent alot of my time gaming, organized the Gamer’s Guild at UTA, and found the core of a gaming group which I still play with, every week, over two decades later. For a time recently I was a podcaster for a very successful podcast on the d20 Radio Network called Radio Free Hommlet. It was dedicated to the Fourth Edition of Dungeons & Dragons. After running that for nearly 2 years, we stopped production and since then I’ve been playing alot games based on the FATE system.
I’m also an active player on Star Wars : The Old Republic, where I play on the Vrook Lamar server. My primary character, Gisben Chantris, is a Trooper on the Republic side and part of TheOrderOfSixtySix guild, and leader of “Not The Group You’re Looking For” (aka NTG).
I played World of Warcraft for many years, on the Dragonblight server as Kossic and later on the Earthen Ring server as Poresh. On Earthen Ring I became a member of the mega-guild Alea Iacta Est.
On XBox, my gamertag is Gisben.
