About PiHalbe as a Gamer

So, on to introducing myself to the English gaming crowd. When I say gaming, of course I mean non-electronic gaming.
I'm a physicist doing my PhD in atmospheric science. When I am not working or spending time with my family, chances are I am doing something related to gaming. In fact, I have been a gamer more than half my life; starting with the dreaded Monopoly and then other board games early on, discovering RPGs in 1996 and finally discovering alternative RPGs in 2006. By now, I have looked into pretty much every aspect of analog gaming.
Besides the gaming itself, I have of course designed a couple of games, some of which even saw the light of day. I've been blogging (mostly about games) for roughly 4 years now and started my podcast PiCast 1½ years ago.
Most of this has been in German, so far; with a few exceptions. This is about to change, as I am going to delve more into the international gaming community. This time also producing instead of just consuming stuff.
Some or most of what I write might sound a bit strange to you. This is because of my long-trained teutonic speech patterns which will eventually bleed through to my English writing. I should hope that this bothers you as little as me (or less) and that what I have to say will let you easily blank out my bloopers.
So, stay tuned and prepare for more insights from a(nother) German gamer.
