Bios

William Garcia - Running Discworld and the Chez Geek/Munchkin Tournament

In, 1986 William began D&D at a sprightly young man and has evolved into a slightly portlier game master. Since beginning gaming, he has played many, many different gaming systems, but has come to use GURPs for just about every game, prefering it's flexibility between gaming worlds. His gaming collection is slightly impressive to other gamers, and scary for pretty much everyone else. As a MIB for SJG, he run GURPS, Frag, Munchkin, and Chez Geek whenever possible.

Richard Dodson - Running Transhuman Space and assisting in the Munchkin/Chez Geek Tournament

I began my gaming career as many of us did with Dungeons and Dragons and AD&D, with a little Star Frontiers thrown in for good measure. Two decades later I'm still going strong. I was introduced to GURPS in college and have been an avid fan ever since.

Joe Vail - Munckin / Chez Geek Tournament

I have been a gamer for more than 30 years. My main interest has always been D&D (sorry, Steve) I first learned D&D from the 5"x8" booklets and played with Dave Arneson several times. In Arneson's FIRST FANTASY CAMPAIGN, he refers to "Count Fang and the Fang-ettes". The Fangettes were my 2 dwarves, Frick and Frack, who became slave-vampires under the Count. I have play-testing credits from Steve Jackson for G.E.V., MELEE, WIZARD, and his first attempt at a role-playing system, THE FANTASY TRIP (remember Metagaming Concepts?). I was heavily into Magic:The Addiction, oops-I mean Gathering for several years and am still looking for a buyer for my collections. I worked for SJG for about a year and a half, in the casting department until ill health (oxymoron?) forced my resignation. Currently, I play MUNCHKIN, CHEZ GEEK, ILLUMINATI, D&D, CHAMPIONS, GURPS, HEROCLIX, M:TG, boardgames, and just about anything else I can. I have a 30 year collection of gaming paraphenalia and have (to have) one bedroom devoted to my hobby.
