I'm Jason Leigh - a pseudo-regular poster here, and an avid lurker.

I live in Chicago, I'm married with 2 kids, and a work-a-day job that pays the bills.

I've been hanging around The Forge since mid 2001 - though I haven't posted there much, or lately at all.  Lately, I've been spending time here, at the 20' by 20' room, and various other blogs/forums dedicated to RPGs.

I think the type of open discussions that go on here, and among other places, about roleplaying, are great.  I wish I'd had this kind of community 10 years ago when I gave up roleplaying for a time.

I'd like to thank the regular contributors here, especially Vincent, for the insight they bring to this hobby, and for their patience and resolve to help make roleplaying better.
