Get To Know A Gamer: Master of Monsters

Get to Know a Gamer
I need to get better at these.Monstrous Expertise Edition

Hello everyone. This thread is the next installment in a series of threads on a somewhat-weekly basis where we get to know members of the RPGX community by having informal "Ask Me Anything"-type threads. In essence, I am going to post some icebreaker questions to which the subject will reply and then the thread will remain open for Q&A until it isn't fun any more.

If you would like to be a victim interviewed, if you have feedback on GTKAG or on the questions themselves, follow this link: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthread.php?p=8981519

Some reminders:
  1. All site rules of course still apply (i.e. keep it PG, no dox, etc.)
  2. Nobody's obliged to answer any questions they don't want to answer
  3. Please keep in mind the risks of sharing info online.
  4. It is okay to ask questions in advance; no need to wait for the victim to respond to the opener.

Now without further ado, some opening questions to break the ice!

QuestionnaireWhat are you doing right now? (besides answering this)
What do you like about your town? (and where is that?)
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
What do you see when you look out the window?
What's your personal creed/motto?
Low-fat, non-fat or regular milk?
Pen or pencil?
Last-gen or first-gen game consoles?
Where would you vacation (if you had enough money)?
Sarcastic or ironic?

The following shamelessly stolen from the "Inside the Actor's Studio" Questionnaire:

What is your favorite word?
What is your least favorite word?
What turns you on (intellectually speaking, not sexually)?
What turns you off?
What sound do you love?
What sound do you hate?
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
What profession would you not like to participate in?
If heaven exists what would you like to hear your supreme being of choice say when you arrive?

What is your favorite...
...music style?
...food style?
...color?
...instrument?
...ice-cream flavor?
...furniture piece?
...quote?
...video game?
...magazine?
...moment in a game (either on RPGX or IRL)?

Shadowrun, great setting, or the greatest setting?

Have you ever played it before? If so or if not, what are you thoughts on it?




If you were the undisputed ruler of RPGX for a day, what would be your first royal decree?

I have not really played shadowrun, I know a little and would probably like it. I am a sucker for Forgotten Realms, call me basic; but I love the setting.

We have an undisputed ruler?

Umm, if I was; I guess I finally give myself the 'good people' badge? IDK......I guess first would be for everyone to have fun? Maybe for us to start a RPGX-con or something?

Ashtray. It was a gray cat that we rescued when its mom was hit by a car. It sat in mom's ashtray and burnt its butt; and its fur was about the color of cig ash. Ash would sleep curled around my head when I slept like a kitty cap, and would knead(and dig its claws into....jerk) my head as I was going to sleep.

Oh crud. Liches, probably. I never really thought too much about it. I started with the username "Ken" but I joined as a co-dm way back in like '05 and I designed the monsters/battles for the game. I was really good at the "Improving mosters" system in 3.5e where you added classes, templates or HD. I don't remember who the other DM, but they said 'your like the master of monsters' and it kind of stuck. Plus, maybe i just like being called Master?

Didn't you used to have Donald Driver as your profile pic? I swear I remember seeing #80 under your name, but I could be wrong.

Also lol at TB12 being your turn-off. I was very lucky to have him as my QB for nearly two decades.

Ok, for an actual question: what's your favorite class for both 3.5 and 5e?

Yes, you have a great memory! I had the above picture, with the tag line "You will be missed #80". That has been my longest lasting avatar on this site! I applied it as my avatar the day that Driver retired all the way up to when I returned earlier this year. So that was about 10 years it was my avatar. Sadly it was mostly inactive years.

I have come to like TB12 a little more since he moved on to TB; my main issue(aside from hogging super bowls) was his personality. He seemed like a jerk in NE. He has loosen up a little since leaving the Patriots. I think that has to do with getting away from Belichick.

3.5e: Halfling Rogue. Without a doubt was my most used race/class combo and was all around my favorite combo. As for my favorite character, it was Elbryan(previously mentioned) Aasimar/Warmage who was a meele based fire mage. He was known for his liberal use of fireball reguardless of the chance of friendly fire(Literally) or self harm and more then once dropped a fireball at his feet. Here are some of my old sheets for him. last edited july 2007 and the more accurate to what I remember last edited Jan 2019, I assume I hit save while walking down memory lane.. Elbryan did eventually move to 4e when Hugga switched T3E to 4e(that is when the aforementioned moment happen.) but he never felt quite the same in 4e.

As far as 5e goes, I have not had a chance to play many characters yet. I have two active. An artificer for a solo game with bananabadger, and a Monk(2)/Cleric(1) with Drachenspirit. I have not had a round of combat as a player yet, though, so I have not got to test out any crunchy bits to this point.

Great question, I answered it earlier, but here is the answer again:

I started with the username "Ken" but I joined a game as a co-dm way back in like '05 and I designed the monsters/battles for the game. I was really good at the "Improving mosters" system in 3.5e where you added classes, templates or HD. I don't remember who the other DM, but they said 'your like the master of monsters' and it kind of stuck. Plus, maybe i just like being called Master?

To add onto it, there is a playstation game that goes by the same name that I absolutely love, so that probably helped with the decision.

Sorry I didnt see your questions till now! Oops.

Best place to visit in wisconsin? Well, La Crosse is near my hometown of Tomah, Wi. It has the worlds largest beer cans.
 


Otherwise if that does not interest you, swing down to Baraboo to visit International Clown Hall of Fame & Research Center. Tons of other things, but those are two off the top of my head.

I have yet to make it to Lake Geneva, due to the fact that its a bit of a drive from me. However as far as gaming goes, I know Penny Williams, and her husband an author who worked on 3.5e DMG as well as many other titles.Skip Williams

I did not know that! Might be time to bust out my credit card and see if I can get some old gems.

This user right here... any relation? they're *born* of Monsters, but not necessarily a monster themselves. So I'm not sure if your mastery extends.
