My dad wanted to show me a slug. Instead, he opened my world to an entire universe I'd eventually base my life on. Thanks so much for showing me that slug, Dad. If only Jabba weren't such a friggin' jerk.

We all face many trials in life. There are no answers with rose-colored-glasses view to life, because we live in an imperfect world where things happen unexpectedly. Multiple Sclerosis happened to me and it has changed my life. One day I was able to do martial arts and live action role play where one of the characters I played was in armor wielding a sword and shield and the next I'm trying to figure out why my left arm doesn't work correctly.

In gaming as well as in life, adversity can both enable and cripple us at any moment. Things can seem to be going great, and with the blink of an eye, in comes disaster to ruin our day.
One of my epic adventures started when I got out of the military. I was discharged in Anchorage, Alaska and decided to ship all my stuff home and make the 5,500 mile drive back to the Catskill Mountains of New York.
Epic. A simple word, that inspires greatness. When we think of the epic stories we’ve been told, the one thing you will find in every story is adversity.
All of us have inner demons that like to remind us of how we can never be perfect. Some are due to things loved ones have said to us. Those things get stuck in your head regardless of the truth.
