Hey There Carnivore,

Welcome to the Boards... Never Been to Portland, though A Lot of My Friends Have/Do live(ed) there... I Spent Most of My Teen Years in The California Central Bay Area, and we used to Go White-water Rafting on the Rogue every Year... (Not that-that has anything to do with anything, except Where my "Conection" to Oregon comes into play)... And Hey I Think that there are Some Klingon Filk Bands In Your Area Yes?

My name is Bill. I'm 35, married, one daughter whom I hope to mold into a gamer girl :). I'm a stay-at-home dad and sometimes computer fixer. Used to be a sysadmin, the height of which was the month-and-a-half stint at NASA in 2002 just before my baby girl was born.

Gaming-wise, I'm all about 1st edition AD&D (for reasons too lengthy to go in to here). I thoroughly enjoy gaming of all sorts in general so long as I have good players surrounding me.

My decision to go with Dwarven forge took a lot of careful consideration. I thought about using cardstock dungeons or Hirst Arts, but I'm essentially a lazy person and those would take a LOT of time to build and I had to ask myself "am I willing to go through with this"?

I probably wouldn't have any Dwarven Forge stuff if I'd kept the few sets of "dungeons" I had in the early '90s (the name of the stuff escapes me - it was 10"x10" metal mats with a stone floor print on them, and the pieces were black plastic with magnetic "feet") but I'm certainly glad I did get in to the DF stuff!

I have over a dozen large sets and easily twenty add on kits or individual pieces. Since 2004, I've run three AD&D games at the HMGS-South's HURRICON and RECON conventions and I always use a full set of Dwarven Forge and miniatures, and I always get folks 'round the table looking at the setup and asking questions (and yes, Jeff and Stefan, I pimp the stuff as best as I can :) ).

You need a copy of TSR's boardgame from the 80's called Dungeon!

Well, no, actually you need a copy of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing (I believe the current version is available from Broderbund software), but after that? Definitely a copy of Dungeon!, man. :D

Seriously, if you can find one, grab it and teach her to play. It's a good "gateway drug" for getting people in to D&D, I've found.

As to Board Games, I Have All Three Versions of Hero Quest, I Have Talisman, (Two Versions), And the New D&D "Basic"... Problem Really Is that My Daughter Seems to be Turning into a "Girl"...<Chuckle>...

Yes, we have Stovakor. They do original songs and filk - mostly original heavy metal songs I think. Couldn't tell though 'cause they were singing in Klingon. I've seen them a few times. I go to a lot of shows here. We are billed as the new Austin, Texas of rock music now.

All I know in Klingon by heart is "Po'ka" (too bad) and "Vi Ta Poo'Be!" (I didn't do it!)

Never rafted in the Rogue, but I have fished there and drank the beer. :lol:

Wow about a year has past on this post.... I am Raymond Cameron living in Magnolia Tx. " North of Houston. I live real close to the Renasanse Festival here that goes on in Oct and Nov each year. It is huge, wild and I love it. I am 42 " the answer " and married to the lovely Denise and we have a great daughter " 9 " named Rachel. We have a house that is wayyy to big for us so I have lots of collections. Been playing D$D since I was in High School and collecting its miniaturs very soon after that. I have been in the Navy as a Submariner. The highlite of that was when us and our sister boat surfaced through the ice at the North Pole. You can see every constelation in the northern hemispheare from there and the north star hangs over your head. The arura will hang in the sky like a slow moving white clound and satiltes abound. A very magical place to be sure I recomend the trip there to anyone with means. I have about 14 sets DF fantasy stuff and recently bought 9 sets Sci fi. I work in the heath field. A Respiratory Thereapist. Oh yes the User Id name is for an album by a French harpist. The first New Age music I ever listened to Whitewinds. I'll get the spelling wrong but it is Andreas Vollenwieder.

I've only been to two diff fairs. The Texas Rennasance Festival is what the one in Magnolia it called. I've been to that one the most. The only other one I've been to is up in the Dallas/Fortworth area and it's called Scarbourgh Fair. Both are very nice with lots of period bulidings and such. TRF is biggar by far but SF seemed like it had alot of very nice hills and the general area was nicer. One part of it goes down to a small creek and a few bridges are there. You can see a row of buildings " Shops on the ridge of the gully with a small widing path leading up to them. Off to the side of one of the bridges is a well used place for campfires and maybe even sleeping. Just one of those very picturesqu places. But TRF has what is known as the Gypsy Came, a small lower area that has all sorts of games like a giant maze for the kids, olifant rides and a giant swing for many to ride at once. Both have great " expensive food " and lots of taverns.

Sounds Good... One of My All time Favorite Faires was the One in Black Point Forest, (Nevado California), Which was the Northern California Faire Site For Many Years... They Finally Lost the Site and Relocated Farther South, but it was Not the Same... We Have a Local Faire that is Only Two Weekends Currently, but it is a Pretty Good Faire Considering the Size... There are also Some South Florida Faires, but Sarasota is the Furthest South I've been for a Faire... I Have to Admit that Shopping and Eating are Two of My Favorite Faire Pastimes...<Grin>...

I really wish there were more than the two local area con's. Maybe there is one in the San Antonio area I just don't know about. I could ask Brvhart about that....
