[Sticky] Welcome Thread!
I'm Scott Kongable. I am president of a military computer company headquartered in Hiawatha, Iowa (right next to Cedar Rapids). I am a long time Dungeonmaster and Administrator (39 years) of D&D, TS, and Gamma World. My favorite game has always been TS because of my fascination with espionage and world politics (and my time as a "cold warrior" in the USAF) - however, it has historically been mostly D&D since it is easier to find players. I have a D&D campaign that has been going for 31 years, but, just started a TS:NWO campaign with my sons (11 & 14).
I find the new TS:NWO an incredible story-telling system with just the right amount of die rolling (unlike the incredible amount in a D&D 3.0 game). The Lucky 13 systems brings a tremendous amount of suspense into the game.
Attended my first GenCon last summer with my boys and intend to run a TS mission there in 2019.
My name is Michael, and I've been playing TTRPGs since I was 12, so verging on 33 years now. Like Scott I mostly play/DM Dungeons & Dragons because it has been easier to find players, but I stated my espionage career with Top Secret S.I. and the James Bond RPG, and I'm hoping to start a TS:NWO campaign soon. I had considered pursuing a career with CSIS - The Canadian Security Intelligence Service - and to that end I got a degree in Political Science, but met my wife in university and didn't want to end up being stationed somewhere far away in Canada for a small starting salary. Instead I've pursued art and design. I am a professional graphic designers, and part-time amateur game designer.
Ours is not to question why, ours is but to do, or die.
By way of introduction, my name is John Hamrick. I have been playing RPG's since I was 9 years old. Recently I have been getting back to Top Secret, but like so many others my mainstay is D&D. I am retired military and currently pursuing my Doctorate in psychology. Wish me luck on this one. Thanks.
Believe in your strength.
I'm on several different RPG forums. The PbP forum I frequent, www.unseenservant.us , is attempting to start a TS:NWO play-by-post. So my google wanderings led me here for further information. Not sure where to properly advertise that game starting up, but at least I'm here! :D
Be well everyone!
