Genres I like
Pretty much anything that has a balance of serious and fluff elements. Fantasy (high or low) is my default, but I enjoy sci-fi and would never pass on a good space opera. Post-apocalyptic gets a little too grim for my taste; anime generally gets a little too light.
Systems I like
I’m partial to D&D 3.5, with AD&D and Pathfinder 1e tied for second favorite. I’ve enjoyed what little I’ve played of Exalted. D&D 5e is fine too, as long as there’s an interesting story to be told.
Styles of games that I like
I like exploring a world, building relationships, and occasionally getting to delve into mechanical crunch via combat or crafting. I tend to play characters that are diplomatic in preference to those that are overtly aggressive, but diplomacy does not necessarily entail either side of the alignment spectrum. I like games that are about role-playing but aren’t afraid of crunch.
What I am looking for in a group
I’m looking for a long-term group in New York City, ideally with a regular schedule and in-person. I’m pretty easy going, but I do generally play characters straight; I’d appreciate a group that can joke at the table without reducing the game to slapstick. Mostly, though, it’d be great to meet other NYC gamers for more than one-shots!
My gaming availability
Saturdays are best for me, but I have time available throughout the week. If we make plans, I expect to stick to them as a rule.
