I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I work in a warehouse that sells components for Trophies. I read, write, play games and sing. I’m married with
two four chickens. [Yes, chickens! Much less fuss than raising children… they not only eat half of what I’d normally throw out, but they lay eggs, put themselves to bed when the sun sets, and don’t need toys, computers, TV, clothes or schooling.]
I’m a gamer – I play (will play, or have played) nearly any games, be it computer-based, board-game, card-game, RPG (role-playing game) or whatever. I’ve been reading, playing cards and board games since a small child. I discovered D&D in 1980 at High School and expanded to many other RPG’s at University.
I enjoy reading and watching movies. My preferences follow mostly Fantasy & Sci-Fi themes. I’ve been writing a fantasy novel, but everything else in life means that I’m not focused on it.
“Tarmor” is short for Tarmornalomea – that’s Quenya (LotR) and a name I use mostly online. There was a period at university where I could read and write in both Tengwar and Cirth. I’ve been a huge Lord of the Rings fan since High School too!
“Dragons of Lancasm” is also the name of my World of Warcraft guild. I’m on the Uther server.
What games do I play?
Currently – ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ RPG (D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder), ‘Lord of the Rings Online’, ‘World of Warcraft’ and ‘World of Tanks’ (both online games), The Witness (PC), Freelancer (Crossfire mod), Faeria, and a varied scattering of other board, card and computer games. Zombicide: Black Plague got a good run in 2016, and there’s still more quests for 2017.
I also write adventures (primarily for D&D), wrote (and ran) a Play-by-email fantasy game, and I’ve written my own d20 version of the Gamma World RPG (combining elements from both 4th and 6th editions).
What have I played? (or still have the game/rulebooks, and expect to play again)
RPG’s – In particular I’ve played all versions of D&D (up to and including 3.5/Pathfinder), Star Wars, M.E.R.P. (Middle Earth Role-Playing), Call of Cthulhu, Champions, Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play, Shadowrun, and Gamma World.
Computer Games – Neverwinter Nights, Warcraft, WoW, Diablo, Portal, Age of Empires, Descent, Dawn of War, Civilization, Freelancer, Quake, Starcraft, Torchlight (1 & 2), Doom, Alone in the Dark, Nethack…
Table Top Games – Kings of War, Hero Quest, Warhammer Quest, Dungeon Quest, Talisman, Car Wars, The Lonely Mountain, Carcassonne, Sequence…
Card Games – Flux, Munchkin, Chez Geek, Unexploded Cow, Kill/Save Dr Lucky, Mille Bornes, Spellfire, Illuminati, Magic (the gathering), Falling…
and the more traditional card games like 500, Crazy Whist, Canasta, Rummy… etc.
