Hello and welcome to forgetfulbard.com!  I am a long-time fan and player of role-playing games, specifically, tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons.  Over the years, I have enjoyed many great adventures alongside the best of friends.  This page is dedicated to that nostalgia of sitting around a table with friends and staying up late, rolling dice and waging war against our enemies.  I have always enjoyed the vivid displays of creativity from the imagination that come to life while immersed in a role-playing game and hopefully we can share those experiences.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, a Halfling will get punted… it’ll be a good time.
