Bio: Freadan

aka Freadan


Other Names/titles: Panda, Lord Bruticus, Kaz, The Crimson Devil


DM Experience: 25+ years


Favorite Character: Osrik Stoneskull, Dwarven Cleric (5E D&D)


Favorite Campaign (Ran): The Shadow of the Tower, 5E D&D. I know it's cheesy to pick the game I'm currently running, but it's great seeing the players flip back and forth between their hero and villain personas trying to play both sides for personal gain.


Favorite Campaign (Played): Rise of the Spartans, a Vampire game that ran for 3 years real time. I played a Ravnos Street Racer and Car Thief. Nothing quite like derailing the climax of an epic game to make a memorable story.


What system or game would you like to run?: A few years ago I bought a friend a third party D20 Transforming Robots and Anime Mecha styled RPG. With my other hobbies (Specifically collecting Transformers) This seems like it would be really fun to jump into. Maybe I should dig up a copy for myself....


Favorite D&D Class: Cleric. Has been since OD&D.


Favorite System: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. It's a brutal harsh world, which makes success so much sweeter. Plus, the system not only encourages, but requires making well-rounded characters.


Other Background Notes: I started gaming before I can remember, with the Red Box D&D. Adding 15 years of Theatre experience makes tabletop gaming one of my favorite past times. The podcast duties come naturally to me with my 5 years of radio experience. I'm really looking forward to seeing this endeavor grow and develop into something we can all enjoy.


Points of Inspiration: The Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman; The Swords Series by Fred Saberhagen; War Against the Chtorr by David Gerrold; The Princess Bride by William Goldman (Book and film); Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg
