R. A. was a corporate public relations counselor when he experienced a career change after coming to Poland in 2001, eventually accepting he did not fit to the cutthroat local business model that invested this satellite of Reagan’s “Evil Empire” with rampant nepotism and bagmen. While the artery of his career financially bled him out over 10 years; he provided English-language conversation practice to many companies who sold his service to innumerable unmotivated and unprepared students in every dust-ridden corner of Warsaw where he traveled to many unheated, coffee-less conference rooms filled only by the sound of one hand clapping at 7am. Inevitably insolvent and indentured into declining health, he transitioned to a starving author reasoning he was halfway there anyway. The bitter lesson harkens back to Ronald Reagan’s story of The Little Red Hen: market capitalism disassembled by rampant socialist cultural programming and an unproductive, resource expending hampster wheel. Tear down this wall, in deed.
Today R.A. focuses on activities to develop his creativity with the financial blessing of his long-time Polish girlfriend and the social support of his tabletop RPGs players, who inspire and entertain him. He is in a different world now, the World of Greyhawk, and the air is better there.
He plays all the non-player characters and describes the scenario, which the players experience. He especially likes playing with people who have never played RPGs before.
