I am a veteran of the United States Army and the US Army National Guard. I spent three years on Active Duty serving in the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized) at Ft. Carson, CO and 3rd Armor Division at Kirch Göns, West Germany. I spent 18 years in the Army National Guard with the 26th Infantry Division "Yankee" and 29th Infantry Division (Light), "The Blue and the Gray". I was deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina with the 29th ID (L) in 2001 - 2002. I have also been reading military history articles and books for over 47 years. I do prefer Military Role Plays over all other genres, primarily because I have a vast knowledge on the subject to include personal experiences. At the very least, my characters are always veterans.

I have been writing for pleasure for at least 30 years, but only got into forum based Role Playing about thirteen years ago. I do enjoy Nation Role Plays and get into minute detail when designing my military. The only reason I enjoy excruciating detail in my militaries is because for me, it is fun. My education and experience on this subject affords me the insight to see the depth in the structure. It is not just a General and a large pile of soldiers. If someone wants assistance in designing an army, navy or air force, please send me a PM. I will help. Please specify what level (echelon) or depth you would like me to go. When I say echelon, I mean Army, Corps, Division, Brigade/Regiment, Battalion/Squadron, Company/Troop/Battery, Platoon and Squad/Section.

When I was a student in High School, I used to play Dungeons & Dragons (Edition 1 & 2). Later editions came out after I quit that game. I do have an interest in Tolkien-esque fantasy styled Role Plays as well. Time travel has always been a fun genre for me, but to do it well, one must have a firm grasp of historical facts. I love doing this form of role play, especially since I have a solid foundation on the past.

There are only a few fan fictions I will participate in; Star Wars and Star Trek are two of them. I want to do an exclusively Klingon RP one of these days. I also avoid Canon characters.

I have real world martial arts experience. I would love to write an RP about hand-to-hand combat, no fantasy magic chit, just hands elbows, knees, and feet. Maybe the occasional head butt thrown in to mix things up. I trained in Krav Maga for six and a half years. I earned a first-degree black belt in Krav Maga on 3 June 2017.

Krav Maga is an Israeli martial art form that employs practical self-defense techniques drawing forms & techniques from Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jistu and Taekwando. It is very brutal, demanding, and aggressive. During the seven years I trained, I have bruised two ribs, sustained several muscle pulls and various lacerations and bruises over my body. I have received a sprained ankle and a fractured wrist. Before the first black belt test, I received a bone bruise to my right shin; where my round house kicks impact. Yet, I am stupid enough to continue training. [Regardless of the physical pain, it is more fun than any other physical activity I have engaged in. Fortunately, the bone bruise healed up prior to the third and final test. EDIT: I did leave the sport two years ago. :(]

Send me a PM for a Role Play.

I see the bad moon a-risin'
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times today

Don't go around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
Though my eyes could see, I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think, I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
I can hear them say
We're also easing toward summer. If you've got any major vacation plans (or if one of us is becoming a new mom,) let us know your dates and we'll work on different scenes while you're away. As for myself, while I'm sure there might be a long weekend...


@Xandrya Good luck with your last few months. I know these can be trying. Especially being 8-9 months pregnant when it is very HOT outside. I feel your pain.

My family is taking a vacation to Maine from 10 - 16 July. We rented a house by a lake. I plan to go fishing, hiking, canoeing, swimming and reading books. I am also bringing my laptop. I hope to have time to work on my book. I actually wrote about a thousand words this past week. I am back up to 71,000+ words. I lost 2500 when my flash drive got ruined this past winter. Yea, I now save my book to One Drive (Cloud). With that said, I should be able to post even though I'll be in another state. This vacation is meant to be relaxing. Oh yea, my kids are bringing their AD&D books and dice. They expect me to be the DM. Yea!

Now I need to come up with some adventure ideas for this campaign to Maine. My daughter typically plays a rogue (thief), like her old man and my son plays some sort of a melee/warrior class. Maybe I can talk them into playing two characters at the same time? Anyone want to come to Maine for a week this summer?

My high school-aged daughter was inducted into the National Honor Society this week.
