Stepping out into the Blogosphere.

The beginning of the story of two RPG players, who turned bloggers.  But also who stayed RPG players.

Well. This is interesting, to say the least.  I have been bouncing this idea around for quite some time, I've posted things to google plus, cyphercast hub, and Reddit.  But never really had anywhere to call my own. This blog will be mostly focused on Cypher System by Monte Cook games, but will most likely contain all sorts of RPG goodness.

To introduce myself, I am Josiah, I am mostly a DM but I have on occasion played a few games, but mostly I love to run games and would like to share that passion with the world.  I plan on working on a lot of character options and settings as they come to me.  Who knows?  Maybe I'll start taking requests.

I got my start in RPGs back in the mid-80s. All of my friends were playing D&D, but I couldn't, because Satan. Instead, I started with Traveler. I had to be the GM, since no one else knew anything about it. That has been something of a trend through the years. As a result, I'm one of those weirdos that actually enjoys GMing more than playing.

Around 2010, I made a conscious decision to change the way I approached GMing. I threw out all of the heavy, clunky games, and began focusing on lighter, narrative games. Numenera was a perfect fit when it came along, and I was hooked. Most of my gaming these days is cypher related. I'll play other things, and occasionally run them, but I always come back to the one I know best.
