I thought it would be a nice for the folks who are in the GWJ RIFT guild to introduce who they are along with their character names, so that we can put players and toons together.
Rhimshot (Healy Bard)
Dom (Cleric Healer)
Thunderfury (Mage who likes to die a lot)
In the real world, I'm a professor at Syracuse University and was the host of Board Games with Scott (http://boardgameswithscott.com) video series for five years and am a regular on the On Board Games (http://onboardgames.net) podcast.
I've also done professional boardgame design (Tulipmania 1637 and other games on their way out) and study board games in libraries and as an educational tool as a professor. I wrote a book on the topic that came out in 2010 called Everyone Plays at the Library. I live in Syracuse, NY and tend to be bursty in my playtime, as my real life job takes over at times.
