Oh... I don't know what to really do here either, but I was thinking about social media... you know... all the ones... I don't really use them... but I'm told I should... I do have a FB account in my name where I would get your message... Instagram... I have that... but I've never really done much except like comic book movies and finish going to the bathroom... There will surely be updates if I get anything else going in that department.... I have enough to look at typing out a decade+ amount of printed pages.

Who I am... What inspired me...
Been playing TTRPG since forever... 12, 13 maybe. D&D of course, always.
Rifts was a lot of fun thanks to a great GM back in the day.
I at some point decided to try and homebrew some worlds and some rules. Which I did... Some were fun...
lol
Some were not so much...
They were not exactly, reality based. Physics didn't seem worth considering back then.
Eventually I got this written down...
this Apeiros...
Every new city or state I moved to, I'd find a group... we'd play D&D or whatever the group had been playing.
Then I'd introduce them to this and run them through a campaign.
We seldom went back to the other game we were playing... We definitely did go back, of course...
just most nights we played this game.
World Anvil is actually the first place I have ever really given it a name. We just called it
"the Game" or
"Hey you wanna GM this time?"
I had a trapper keeper full of rules. There still is one, but its much more than a trapper keeper now... It's got it's own shelf on my bookshelf... lol... really... maybe I'll take a picture of that one day and upload it.
The point, I guess, is that I've been playing this system for about 15 years... or so... time isn't my thing. I've had some players who had huge impacts on the physics... the movement... the setting... everything... But it has been the same basic system since the first time I pulled out my single notebook with half of it full... and said... "check this out... can I run you guys through one campaign?"
Ok.. if anyone reads this I apologize for the grammar... I am completely aware that I am doing it. This is author profile or whatever.
If you want to know me and such... I figured I could help you. This way, you are reading it exactly... or close to exactly... what the way I am thinking it... right now... none of this planned...
It just annoyed me that it just showed my favorite books, and nothing else. Ask most anyone, and going off on a tangent about nothing... or sometimes something... is the best way to introduce myself in this very one sided introduction.
No hands to shake... now one to head nod or bow to...
how does this introduction end?
I'll just stop I guess.
Oh! I should mention also that all the artwork I put up here are mine... like I drew them or whatever... won't always be drawings... paintings... engravings... I have a table that I created a huge map on... complete with gravel mountains, sawdust for sand/beaches... Painted the whole thing and put a nice coat of poly on top.
That's around the time we called the game "...after" actually. My friend was asking the premise of the game before he made his first character...
it's more fun if they don't know... for him and for the GM, who was me
(LOL)..
so i said" its about what happens, after this, after right now..."
he said "well... what happens after?"
I said we haven't rolled that yet.
lol
We played that map a long time...the name ...After stuck around a while after that... and now I've given it a proper name... It even seems like a noun.
Apieros...
its a real ancient Greek word if I drop the plural. But I think there are multiple infinity...
infinites
With a new crown holder, comes the possibility of a "world change" in which the world kinda survives, but the land turns to lava and the land masses are moved... not easy to survive, but you'd be amazed how many have. It always calls for a new map when that happens...
Also... I'm in Oklahoma... USA...
I... umm... guess I should have said more about myself...
2 boys.. they rock socks...
ummm... I was a red-headed step child... literally... now I'm a red headed adult...
only in terms of time... which I barely believe in...
Hi... I'm Eric.
