This is Richard Bejtlich. I played my first RPG, Star Frontiers, in 1982. After many years away, I DM'd D&D 5e for my family. This summer, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Frontiers, I joined an online campaign. Mongoose's Traveller offerings are impressive, so I'm getting up to speed with them. I'm considering pursuing a PhD in history, studying sci-fi RPGs, after I retire from my day job in cyber security.
