Roleplaying experience

For those times when someone asks, usually on a forum, for a list of role-playing games that you have played, this page prevents me from having to retype a huge list of stuff each time. Some factoids:

  • I started roleplaying in the late 1970’s.
  • I have, for some reason, gravitated towards games with really good settings, but somewhat questionable mechanics.

Games in each section presented alphabetically. Links are mostly to Wikipedia, as these tend to be unchanging and more reliable than the gaming publishers themselves.

  • Currently playing: involved in a campaign considered “active”.
  • Played significantly: These are games that I’ve played over many sessions, in some cases multiple campaigns, over long periods.
  • Played at least once: At least a playtest or a couple of sessions.
  • Itching to play: I read a bunch of games. Some of them hit me harder than others. Some make me really want to play them. I will probably play them soon, but haven’t yet.
  • Have read: I have read this game.
  • Own PDF: I (legally) own a PDF of this game’s main rulebook.
  • Own hardcopy: I own a paper version of this game’s main rulebook. Many of these games I owned once upon a time, but sold them (usually because I moved somewhere).
  • Want: I want to own this game.
