I started playing D&D in the early 2000s with the 3rd edition starter set ("The Adventure Begins Here!"). I played an extraordinary amount of D&D with friends who still game with me today, including my first player in elementary school. I discovered the OSR shortly after Basic Fantasy, OSRIC, and Swords & Wizardry were released. We played many old-school D&D systems without knowing anything about the old-school, and so I'm sure we played poorly. But we had fun.

I ran several other game systems, but we always came back to D&D. I stopped playing RPGs shortly after high school, but returned in 2020.

Upon returning to the old-school community, I've discovered incredible blogs like the ones on my blogroll. Thanks to other bloggers, I'm in the prime of my refereeing career. Caltrops for Breakfast is my contribution.
