I am getting 42 this year (2021). I live in Germany, and I am also German. I have played and GMed RPGs now for about 26 years, mostly as the storyteller. I began with D&D, later AD&D, MERS, Runequest, Rolemaster, Hârnmaster, Midgard, Vampire, Werwolf, Magic, Changeling (and all those other WoD games), Starwars (old and new), Cyberpunk, Cthulhu, PP&P, the Dark Eye, and Shadowrun.
For the last couple of years though, I have only run campaigns in the world of Shadowrun. I love GMing as much as playing a PC. I am still way off to be called a "Great GM", but I like to level up to some day reach this level.
