So what makes you stand out among True Dungeon players?

I'll start. I am willing to bet I am the only True Dungeoneer who can see the Hollywood sign from my workplace and from my house (if I walk about 20 steps up the street and it's not too hazy/cloudy).

I suspect I’m the only born-and-raised Yooper player of True Dungeon, but would be interested to hear if I’m wrong. (Although it is probably a good thing that I live in Chicago now and therefore am a reasonable driving distance to GenCon and GHC. Da UP isn’t close to any TD cons.)

Where is Chicago? I lived for a couple years in Rogers Park. Loved living there - drove to my first GecCon - the last year it was in Milwaukee.

So, unique.

Well, there are a few of us TDers who are physicians.

Add that to the venn diagram of those who train martial arts and I might be unique.

If that's not enough, add in I can see the Pacific ocean from my kitchen and I think I'm good.

If not, well, maybe I'm not as special as I thought.

I would be willing to bet I am the only True Dungeon player who's had speaking roles in a film and web series, with non speaking role in a second web series.

Other than that I know Peter Adkinson and chat with him a few times a year but I don't think that's overly unique among the TD folks

I'm not the only Gen Con staffer, but I'm the only Australian staffer who plays I believe,

I'm in the UK. There is no True Dungeon in the UK. I wouldn't be at all surprised if I'm the only person in the country who has played more than once or twice....

Otherwise I've done a bunch of stuff in TCGs and board gaming over the years - won several UK champion titles, flown overseas to commentate on championships, I demo at GenCon, Essen and UK Games Expo every year, etc.
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

Maybe not my most unique thing; and maybe not that unique among TD players, but years ago I played on the Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour a couple time...although not successfully.

Anyone one else out there a former M:TG pro?

Well, I never played on the pro tour; but I did top 8 a couple PTQs (limited format, one was Rochester top 8).

I was also a judge for almost 10 years, got to level 2.

And most unique: I am (half) the reigning 2-headed giant state champ for Indiana. They only had 2HG state champs twice, my teammate and I won the second year.

I earned 1 lifetime pro tour point, in Washigton DC in 1999.

I judged for about 6 years, never took the level 2 test.

Most of what makes me odd can be gleaned from my signature.

But specific to True Dungeon, I was the player coach for the Wil Wheaton Guild run. I had not heard of the Guild before that, but have all all six seasons on DVD now.
