The Dungeon Master
name is Curtis Berry, and I'll be your Dungeon Master. I've been doing the
DM thing for over 30 years and love every minute of it. I love being in on
all the secrets and watching people get excited as the story unfolds and
they figure the mystery out.
A little about me.
I was born an Air Force brat in
a hospital on Lakenheath AFB in Lakenheath, England near Mildenhall.
While I was still but a wee baby, my father was shipped back to the
U.S.A. where I grew up primarily in Albuquerque, NM.
After graduating from High
School in 1984, I struck out on my own and sowed some oats while
learning the hard way that without a college education, I was going
to be looking at some low pay for a long time. I won't bore everyone
with the details of my job history. Suffice to say that I've worked
a few places and learned a few skills.
I graduated from the University
of New Mexico in 2003. I could have finished in 1997. I won't make
excuses. All I can do is advise everyone out there to attend college
if possible and get their degree early as they can. And be sure to
stick to it, even when times are tough for you. Best investment
you'll ever make.
In 1983, a friend introduced me
to the wonderful world of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. I was a
junior in High School and couldn't wait until the middle of the day
so I could spend my precious 30 minutes of lunchtime playing. Soon I
began to create and run my own games fleshing out a world called
Irith--which I drew in colored pencil on several pieces of graph
paper placed side-by-side to show the maps.
I created adventures for my
players based upon material from my imaginary world, and they seemed
to like it very much. The number of people who would attend my games
on a consistent basis over the years told me that I could not only
run a good game, but spin a good yarn as well.
I hope you all enjoy the game!
Also, if you're interested, I
wrote a book called
Shades of Light: Book One of the Walker Chronicles. You can
