I'm Peter (Peter C on the now-defunct Google+), a Canadian living on the west coast. I started playing RPGs in 1981 or 1982; the first game I owned was the Moldvay Basic box set. It was a gift. (Thanks, Jon!) The first game I bought was the Expert box. I went through a long hiatus from pen-and-paper elfgames circa 1986–2004 because I thought they were childish but I have since been disabused of that mistaken notion — this happened around the time I became a stepdad. My re-discovery of the joys of old-school gaming came via the Dragonsfoot.org forums in 2007 (screen name Mak); I subsequently migrated to Google+ for its vibrant OSR and RPG communities and am now, like many others, somewhat adrift Internet-wise in the wake of that platform's demise.
Currently running: a face-to face 5th-edition D&D campaign set in a loose adaptation of the late N. Robin Crossby's Hârn and a parallel B/X online game set in the same world.
Games I'd like to play: The One Ring, Numenéra, Troika!, Empire of the Petal Throne (1975), Gamma World (1e), Stars Without Number, Classic Traveller, Encounter Critical, any pre-2000 D&D.
