Well, I'm currently playing, just not mastering... my main problem is lack of time. I like to write my own stories. My group, which is kinda small, currently consists of Paco, who's an old school DM (i,e. a sadist); he owns Rappan Atuk, which we are playing right now, Cesar, who works at a games shop, Ulises, who's a mechanic and a guns enthusiast, and myself. I work at a travel agency. I hate it. I also study art and like to write. I'm trying my hardest to break into the comics industry as a writer at the moment.
Lack of time, the eternal gamer's lament (and common artist and writer lament)! Oh so familiar!! I luckily have the type of job where I can sneak in a bit of dungeon creation and world designing in between tutoring students and office work.
I can imagine getting "your foot in the door" of the comics industry is a tremendous challenge! I wish you the best of luck my friend!
