About JADE


JADE Gaming was formed in 2012, by four geeks with a passion for tabletop gaming, miniatures, and adventuring.



Jeff
Since he first saw the original trilogy, Jeff has had a passion for Star Wars. He knows everything from the obscure characters to the expanded universe. Over the years his love of Star Wars bloomed into a love of all film, and Jeff is one of the biggest movie and actor buffs there is.He can name almost any film, or actor off the top of his head. It is uncanny.

1) Job?

I am Job.

2) Fave Tabletop/Board/Card game?

Battlestar Galactica & Spartacus.

3) Fave video game?

Ocarina of time, Majora's Mask, Assassin Creed: Brotherhood & Red Dead Redemption.

4) Most overrated game?

World of Warcraft.

5) Preferred character class?

Shar'ir from 2nd Ed's Al-Qadim Setting.

6) Usual alignment?

Chaotic Neutral.

7) Magic or melee?

Magic, no question.

8) Sci-Fi or Fantasy?

Fantasy. With the exception of Star Wars. Although... Star War is comprised of many fantasy elements.

9) Best Fictional Character?

Tyler Durden & Gustavo Fring.

10) Most epic win?

First D&D campaign I ever played in High School. Our party (comprised of alignments at both ends of the spectrum) was able to come together and plan a take down of a Goblin Camp. The plan was executed with textbook efficiency and precision. We snuck in the camp after midnight and were subtly able to slay all the goblin patrols without alerting the garrison. We then stole what we needed, and straight moonwalked on out of there. All about dat rushing in with bows playas.


Andrew
At the age of 11, the first game Andrew played was Magic the Gathering, and his love for all tabletop games has grown since then. Now he collects all sorts of games, from RPG's, to Board Games, to Miniatures, and keeps a steady stream of geek into his brain by constantly watching his favourite show: Star Trek.

1) Job?

Software and Network Consultant.

2) Fave Tabletop/Board/Card game?

How can I possibly choose that? I own different 88 tabletop games! And that is not including the RPGs! I dunno, my favourite Dungeons and Dragons edition is 2nd and I guess my favourite board game is Axis & Allies. First one I ever owned. Is that good enough?

3) Fave Video Game?

Wolfenstein 3D, and Minecraft... Maybe Starcraft as well...

4) Most overrated game?

Settlers of Catan.

5) Preferred Character Class?

Fighter.

6) Usual alignment?

True Neutral.

7) Magic or melee?

Melee. Every time I do magic, I focus way too much on damage and forget about all the other cool spells.

8) Sci-Fi or Fantasy?

Fantasy! No wait! Science Fiction! No, Fantasy!

9) Best Fictional Character?

Paul Atreides.

10) Most epic win?

Anything my Bard (Cyrano de Bergerac) did in the Elementia Campaign. I was the most wanted man in the city of Genaya for most of the game! Badass notoriety.


Dave
Dave loves video games, anime, and vinyl figures. The walls of his house are lined with autographed movie posters, and filled with collectibles and comics. Already being a lover of all things geek, the move into tabletop gaming was an easy fit for him.

1) Job?

Graphic Designer Extraordinaire.

2) Fave Tabletop/Board/Card game?

Canvas Eagles.

3) Fave Video Game?

This is a loaded question that I may never be able to answer.

4) Most overrated game?

Halo or Call of Duty.

5) Preferred Character Class?

Sorcerer.

6) Usual alignment?

Anything chaotic keeps things spicy.

7) Magic or melee?

Depends on the day of the week.

8) Sci-Fi or Fantasy?

I'll have one of each please.

9) Best Fictional Character?

Nicholas Cage.

10) Most epic win?

Any game of Maze of the Minotaur... That's heavy metal baby! \m/   \m/


Elijah
Elijah is a software developer, a reader of fantasy and science fiction novels, and a musician. He also loves the theatre, and enjoys role playing games above all others, for their expressive nature.

1) Job? 

Software team coordinator.
