[Q&A] K. David Ladage (Arcanum)

[19:02] <+KDLadage> Hi. My name is K. David Ladage. I am just this guy, ya know?
[19:02] <+KDLadage> I am a role-playing from way back (started with Red Box D&D back in 1978-1979).
[19:02] <+KDLadage> I have played a lot of RPGs over the years. My favorites were the ones that kep things relatively simple -- Classic Traveller being a good one.
[19:03] <+KDLadage> Back in the mid 1980s, after the whole 'steam tunnels' thing in Michigan, I had my life turned upside down as my mother decided that all that RPG stuff was the devil's work.
[19:03] <+KDLadage> That was when, while at my local book store, I noticed this cool game with a black cover and a giant red pentagram on the cover. My first thought was 'gotta get me a copy of that.'

[19:04] *** ChanServ sets mode +ao egyptian egyptian
[19:04] <~Dan> (Howdy, egyptian!)
[19:04] <+KDLadage> The Arcanum (second edition) was a great little game. But after time, I migrated over into other 'more serious' games. GURPS became my game of choice for many, many years.
