Introduction and Platform

I have been playing and running RPGs since the 1980s.

Why do you play/run RPGs?

To have fun and tell stories.

The ENNIES requires a major commitment of time and energy. What resources do you have that will help you discharge these responsibilities? Will your gaming group or other individuals be assisting you? Does your family support you?

It won’t be an issue. I have ample support from those around me.

Judging requires a great deal of critical thinking skills, communication with other judges, deadline management, organization, and storage space for the product received. What interests, experience, and skills do you bring that will make you a more effective judge?

I have a JD, the acquiring of which required tremendous critical thinking ability.

What styles and genres of RPGs do you enjoy most? Are there any styles or genres that you do not enjoy? Which games best exemplify what you like? Do you consider yourself a particular system’s, publisher’s, or genre’s “fanboy/fangirl/fanperson”?

OSR, fantasy.

What games have you played in the past year? List up to 10 RPGs you have played the most. Which ones, if any, have you loved or hated?

Pathfinder, D&D5e, Castles and Crusades, OSE, Knave, 5 Torches Deep, Lamentations of the Flame Princess

Briefly summarize the criteria you will use for judging products in the different categories.

Excellence in both substance and style.

How will you judge supplements or adventures for game systems whose core rules you are unfamiliar with or you believe are badly designed?

I will learn.

How would you like to see the ENnies change? What should remain inviolate?

Broader diversity of tastes and opinions in judges.
