NO FRAMES

Resources for Role Playing Gamers

I am an avid Role Playing Gamer (RPG'er) and have been since AD&D was called Chainmail. I have since played several different systems, and have come to like many of them and despise others. But I don't discriminate against those systems I don't like so hopefully you'll find something useful here.

Due to constraints on my time, I've relinquished my convention calandar to Jenga. She's done one hell of a job! Check out the rest of her site when you're done looking at the con calandar.

rec.games.frp.dnd
