I have been involved in role playing games since 1979. I remember playing D&D using the old box set. Later we moved to using AD&D. I ran a Fantasy campaign that was a blend of my own creation along with some material I got from the Thieves World anthology series. Later the group I played with decided to start using the Hero Game system - basically Champions for playing comic book style RPGs. Later when Fantasy Hero came out we stopped using AD&D altogether. About the same time I moved away and found the campaign world of Harn and started using it as my campaign world. I mostly GM during this time. I got married and my wife also got into RPG. We moved again and reformed a gaming group - which was difficult because people were so busy. After that move I got rid of all my RPG material. I either sold, gave away or threw away everything I had. That was in 1987.
I wanted to start RPG again. So I got the material I gave way back (cost a pretty penny to have it shipped to me) and bought the rest of what I needed. The reason is quite simple - we had two very bright teenagers who read a lot of fantasy books. Winters in MN are long and can be quite boring if you don't have something to do when you are trapped in your house.
Our oldest has gone off to college and our youngest is about to go to college. We have an active gaming group which currently has four players (two women and two men) and myself. We are looking for a couple players and/or a GM or two.

I scored as a Storyteller
You're more inclined toward the role playing side of the equation and less interested in numbers or experience points. You're quick to compromise if you can help more the story forward, and get bored when the game slows down for a long planning session. You want to play out a story that moves like it's orchestrated by a skilled novelist or film director.
