Alex has been a gamer since 2008, beginning his ascension into the universe of RPG’s through Dungeons and Dragons 4E. After his gateway game of D&D 4E sundered off into obscurity, he had attempted a myriad amount of different systems and settings and his love fell into place when he found the Dragon Age RPG. His first encounters with the Dragon Age RPG, were experiences highlighted by his own befuddlement and fascination over the dubious setting. But, when given the chance to play, his expectations were overwhelmed and he was pleasantly surprised with this engaging and engrossing system.
Mindy has always been into playing board games and video games ever since she was a kid. Mindy enjoyed playing various video games and board/card games with her family. Fast forward to 2008, her husband introduced her to the Star Wars universe with the miniatures game from Wizards of the Coast, and eventually, the Star Wars Saga Edition Role-Playing Game. Also somewhere during that time she got hooked on a little video game called Dragon Age: Origins. It only made sense when Mindy saw the Dragon Age RPG hit the store shelves to buy it. Suddenly before she knew it, she was diving into the world of Dragon Age, hosting weekly games behind the GM screen. Mindy enjoys the the Dragon Age RPG because its a fresh look at fantasy games, giving it a dark twist.
