A new avatar!

We interrupt you regular blog reading with this important message. I just got a new avatar for the blog! Michael got one a few months ago and I was just so envious I had to get one for myself. Well that’s not quite true. When I saw the dapper steam-punk Stargazer I asked him who had done his avatar for him and he pointed me to Symatt, a wonderful and talented guy who was kind enough to take my picture (a dangerous endeavor right there) and my desire to look like a paladin on my avatar, like the character from which I take my nickname, and came up with the image you see in this post.

I want to publicly thank him for the avatar. I am thrilled and uploaded it to Gravatar so you may see his creation in other services. Hope you like it as much as I do. It certainly easier on the eye than my picture!

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. For a second there, when I had just read the title and not the article, I thought you were talking about the TV show franchise (“Avatar: The Land Airbender” and “Avatar: The Legend of Kora”). Tease 🙂

    1. Sorry for the confusion. Would you believe I have never seen the series? I have seen the awful movie but not the animated series. I know it is supposed to be good, I should see it…

      1. You should! It’s definitely a great series. The first series (3 seasons/books) is a little more kid oriented, but still a good show for adults. The new one (Legend of Kora) is a bit more teen oriented… but, again, still a good show for adults.

        1. I have a friend who swears by it, and I must admit I have been negligent in catching up with animation. I watch as much as I can see, but I see more procedural drama and documentaries each day. Growing old! Thanks for the recommendation…
