I've already made my intro in the appropriate thread, but I wanted to try to resuscitate some forum activity around here.
I've been a gamer since 1982, but most of us can say we've been around this hobby for decades. What else have you done to earn your Gaming Geek pedigree?
- My most successful campaign thus far was a 2-year, almost-weekly 3.5E run through the Return of the Temple of Elemental Evil with an eight-player table. I was proud of that one, especially when I whipped out a 12" Human Torch™ action figure (as Imix, Elemental Prince of Fire) in the epic final battle. (I hope to surpass that effort with my new Ptolus campaign, which will be kicking off a week from Sunday.)
- I dragged my wife with me to watch the epic LOTR back-to-back-to-back trilogy in the theater on the opening day of Return of the King. All told, we were in the theater for just over 13 hours that day. (Totally worth it!)
- I'm an amateur voice actor and cast member of the fledgling "Shadowvane":http://shadowvane.net/ horror audio podcast.
- I've been to conventions on-and-off for many years, including two trips to Gen Con in 2006 and 2010, but I hadn't ever actually run a convention game until "our local convention":http://xenocon.weebly.com/ started in 2012. I'd like to think I'm a better-than-average convention GM, and I very much consider myself to be an ambassador to this hobby. I'm a XenoCon convention staff member and "Gamicon":http://gamicon.org/index2.php attendee/GM, and twice a year I run my "one-of-a-kind, spinning 3D miniatures arena combat":http://happyjacks.proboards.com/thread/319/grindhouse-evolution-game-lotsa-pics called the Grindhouse Arena.
So what have YOU done, geeks? :-)

"Please pay attention very carefully, because this is the truest thing a stranger will ever say to you: In the face of such hopelessness as our eventual, unavoidable death, there is little sense in not at least TRYING to accomplish all your wildest dreams in life." - - Kevin Smith
