Post Hello, all: my introduction
I'm not really new here as I joined over 6 years ago, but this is my first post.
I've only played C&C a few times, but it's a game I'd love to use for a long term campaign.

I started D&D with the Holmes box set back in '79/'80. My first sets were the Moldvay B/X sets.
It wasn't long, and I was running B/X for one set of friends and playing AD&D1e with another set.
When my B/X group split, I was running & playing AD&D1e exclusively.
I moved to AD&D2e and D&D3e as they were released. I had a few TLG d20 products back then.

When D&D4e came out, I moved on from D&D altogether and switched to HackMaster Basic. HackMaster remains my game of choice these days, but C&C looks to good to ignore.

I'm a GM much more often than I'm a player, but I'm happy with that. I've had a few articles and adventures published, nothing major; but it's something I'd always dreamed of as a kid.

Over the past few years, I've become friendly acquaintances with the Trolls (mainly Stephen & Tim - and Tyler); and they keep making me give them money. I met Davis for the first time at GaryCon this year.

My new group of three players decided they want to try D&D5e instead of C&C. Their funerals are in a few days...I mean, I acquiesced for now but hope to get them switched to C&C in the future.

Hello, my name is George; and I love RPGs.

Hi George! Pretty sure we played HM Basic and Aces and Eights together. On line and maybe at Gary Con 4 or 5 years back.

I'm pretty sure we haven't; but I do recall watching you run A&8s at GaryCon one year, so we have met face to face. You had hit up Wal-Mart for some plastic cows and horses.

You have me at a disadvantage as I'm not familiar with the screen name.
And at this time, the wife and I are planning to be there. :)

Yeah, that was me at Gary Con. So you didn't play online with all the Kenzer forum members when just HM Basic was out?

No, I didn't start any online play until a few years ago; but I'm currently not doing anything online.

I guess its just your frequent posting on Kenzer that made you seem so familiar, then. I haven't been posting much in recent years. In the last few years I've only ran an Aces and Eights game for a few months. Just waiting to get the 2E book in my hands lately.

GameHole is unlikely but not completely out of the question.
The wife & I are planning on GaryCon.

I'm curious how many people here I actually know but don't know their forum names.
Buttmonkey is one. We've met a few times and gamed together at GaryCon in the past. And Treebore.
I'm sure there are others.

I'm a yearly GaryCon attendee, but I am not sure if we met. I go by the terrestrial name Derrick, and pretty much only play C&C and OSR games while at the con. I sometimes wear a sombrero... at GaryCon. If I have played a game with you, great to see you again. If I haven't (the rainbow glasses kind of throw me), then we should chuck die together soon!

Onward towards adventure!
