Biography

Fifteen years ago GoldenH started roleplaying because it was the most geeky, transgressive things you could do. Ever played vampires in church? He has! Through the internet that resulted in a wide exposure to different cultures and philosophies. Two things drive him: The urge to create and to empower others. Now instead of being transgressive, Roleplaying is connecting people from all over the world and helping them share their dreams.

Degrees in engineering, physics and accounting bring a unique view of gaming. Physics is describing reality with math; what other field could be so perfect for roleplaying? He ran an IT consulting business for a time, being invested in how technology works, and worked as a substitute teacher for many years before that. GoldenH is a firm believer in reading for inspiration, perusing other media and preferring to play in games while he is running one. That it helps to learn new methods to improve his roleplaying or GMing, and give context to the ideas other players bring to the table. That said, ideas need to be tested before they can be accepted, so discussions about RPGs and philosophy are welcome and even encouraged!

To him, video games are one of the best sources of entertainment. But they lack one critical feature RPGs have: the potential for unlimited freedom. Put the players in the most intense situations possible and see what they do – no turning off your computer in disgust at your character’s idiocy or the inability to pick up or use the items that would solve a problem. Video games are better at tracking complex mechanical systems, and is looking forward to Roll20 becoming a tool as useful at the table as it is online.

But he wouldn’t be GoldenH without being opinionated. Like many other gamers he has a dream of the perfect roleplaying game. A game where the rules communicate rather than restrict, where settings drive the players to action, with subsystems that are engaging minigames in their own right. Will he discover the perfect roleplaying game? Or learn enough to create it? Only time will tell…
