Lori once told me she always remembers my name because I was the first order on the year they started a customer spreadsheet or database, so whenever she logs in she sees my name first. Trent also claims I was his first customer for tokens.

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 made top 8 at a few state events for MtG, took second place in a regional for Bleach and top of clan at an L5R Kotei.

Took 10th at the national tournament for Bleach at gencon the year of it's release and am currently the two time undefeated national champion for Romance of the Nine Empires.

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

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


I was level 2 for several years. Never took the level 3 because it required traveling to Washington at the time

Interesting, I wasn't aware you had used a third recipe.

I know of your two artifacts but no knowledge of the third recipe and what became of it.

That's pretty cool! I'm a Dive Master but I only started in 1999.

I'd be willing to bet that I'm the only TDer who's worked as a crypto linguist, though that community is pretty nerdy so I wouldn't bet a ton of money on it. I am also a haunted house fanatic every year that doesn't have a global pandemic my brother and I road trip to a new top ten haunted house.

I am probably the only TD person to win the ESPN march madness tourney. My profile pic is from my trip I won to Hawaii and I was zip lining. Otherwise I would never had been able to afford it.

Well, I was the 1st on my fathers side of the family since the civil war to enter the military (Grandfather was a ship builder during WW2, my father was an only son during Vietnam). I was your typical 98 pound High School science/game/D&D/TFT/geek/nerd. I joined the Marine Corp and am an expert shot (yes, some sniper training) with anything I can put to my shoulder, but I suck with a pistol, dichotomy, am I right (some form of psychological disconnect). Started my own Comic and Game store off of a few thousand dollars in 1990 that I ran for 20+ years here in south east Iowa under the name of Spud's Emporium of Comics and Games (and soon to re-open). The nickname of Spud is from college and is self chosen (and is actually the last name) of my nom de plume/ nom de guerre. Level 1 judge since the beginning for Magic (I still play every other month with my group of 25 years). I've done community theatre since I was 15 (52 years minus a pandemic). Still have perfect pitch (getting rusty), read music (getting rusty) can sing on demand (getting rusty but apply alcohol for full effect). Cook a dozen styles/forms, which I started at age 3 under my paternal grandmother while growing up in Panama City, Florida (Thanks Nana!). I do 99% of all cooking in the house (and 99% of the dishes). Have been to Gen Con continuously since 1982 (virtually last year, minus a damn pandemic) and have personally taken/introduced 100+ different people to Gen Con over those years. I wish I had played True Dungeon sooner than 2015/16. If so, I'm confident I could have made a lot of other TD converts during that time. That being said, John Ohlinger, who had never even played a RPG before, is my latest acolyte/convert . And he now owns more tokens than me. I've created a monster ;) I sincerely hope my pacemaker (another story) lasts long enough for me to play True Dungeon in my fast approaching 60's much to my wife's consternation (she tired of my boyish enthusiasm). And I am making Iowa Ham Balls for dinner tonight for mother's day (wife is a farm girl). John, if you are reading this, there will probably be left overs ;)
