I must confess, I’m a gamer. That’s right, behind this ultra-cool exterior lies a Dungeons and Dragons nerd. I am one of those people you’ve heard of who likes to play role-playing games, though that isn’t all of it. Not only did I play a Dungeons and Dragons like game, sank even further into nerdity by playing a more obscure game.
I made a chart so you can see just how much of a nerd I really am:
Dungeons and Dragons —– Many normal people have heard of it.
GURPS —– No normal people have heard of it. Some Dungeons and Dragons people.
Fudge —– A few Dungeons and Dragons people. Some GURPS people have.
Fate —– No Dungeons and Dragons people, a few GURPS people, some Fudge people.
This is where I’m at. My game of choice is Fate, a game so obscure that even Dungeons and Dragons people haven’t even heard of it.
But, my friends, that isn’t the end of it. I also play wargames. Sure, I can play Chess, but I prefer Go. I can play Checkers, but I really like the (you guessed it!) more obscure wargames that are simulations of actual historical battles. I know your eyes are glazing over as you contemplate all of this, so I won’t continue.
I just wanted to let you know who you’re dealing with.
P.S. Thanks for giving me a topic to write about Hank! See HJO3 Project on the blogroll for more about Hank.
