    OK, so I should start this off since I'm the idiot with the idea for this campaign in the first place. I always feel weird about pitching DM credentials - basically all I'll claim here is some facility with 4E and a deep and abiding love for Dark Sun in all its incarnations - I ran the game in 2E, in 3.5E (thanks to the fine folks at athas.org), and am very excited about running it in its 4E incarnation, since it's my favorite version of D&D since the Red Box.

    In terms of play style: I embrace the challenge and tactical aspect of D&D4E. My games are not all hack-and-slash, but D&D does tactical combat well, and I like to enjoy that as a DM, and I am one of the weirdos who finds the Skill Challenge system to nicely shape and support non-combat role-playing. I'm not going to force you to shut up and roll Diplomacy, though, don't worry. If you yell at me about "role playing vs. roll-playing," however, I'm going to make you read Burning Wheel. My ideal is to make the challenges you face hard enough to make you sweat, but not needlessly vicious.

    Logistically... I have a two year old daughter with whom I like to spend time, and so I tend to be most available to run games from about 8PM. It's easiest for me to host, but so long as I can get to the venue in a reasonable amount of time (and I have just obtained a car, for those who know me) I'm happy to entertain alternatives.

    HOUSE RULES:

    - I will be using the alternative Obsidian Skill Challenge System: http://www.enworld.org/forum/4e-fan-creations-house-rules/241440-stalker0s-obsidian-skill-challenge-system-new-version-1-2-a.html

    - Maximum of 6 people at a game, for my sanity and yours.
