Greetings! Welcome to Dungeon Beef, a little slice of the interwebs for me to put my musings and grumblings about role-playing games and everything that goes along with them.
I live for tabletop gaming. It is my favorite pastime and the one indulgence I still allow myself. I used to collect comic books and action figures, I was a hardcore video gamer, at one time I was a die-hard movie buff too, gobbling up DVDs like my life depended on it, but as life moves forward these and other hobbies have all fallen to the wayside in my twilight years. But I could never let go of role playing. It has brought me more happiness than anything else I've ever experienced. (Editor's note: This does not include the wife. Hi honey!) I've been gaming for over two decades now, cutting my teeth on AD&D, White Wolf, Shadowrun, and d6 Star Wars games back in the wild days of the 1990s.
"What the heck does Dungeon Beef mean anyway?" I hear you not asking. Good question. I don't know. It may have something to do with Dave's "magical" cow Chelsie from Knights of the Dinner Table. Maybe not. Maybe it's just the image of a Holstein in full barding, laden with a mace, torches, and a ten-foot pole about to enter a dungeon that amuses me.
It is my intention that this blog will contain some useful and/or entertaining information about RPGs so we'll see how that goes. Even though I've been gaming for over 20 years now I am always trying to improve as a Game Master, and I think getting this process out there will make it easier for me and might even help some other GMs along the way.
Thanks for stopping by, and may all your hits be crits.
