About

My name is Andrew Ian “Redkun” Reid, and I love games.

I’m a twenty-something year old from Scotland who has been playing (and designing) games since his dad bought him a Commodore 64 at the age of four. When I entered university I was introduced to pen and paper roleplaying games (specifically, Dungeons & Dragons 3.5) and entered a whole new level of passion for the genre. Since then I’ve designed and ran several successful campaigns, tried several different game systems (from Shadowrun to Anima: Beyond Fantasy) and dunked myself into game design.

I also have video games- specifically JRPGs- to thank for my interest in Japanese culture. I’m a big anime and tokusatsu (live-action) fan, and know a little Japanese (but am far from fluent) after visiting the country in 2009.

Redkun Playing Games is a blog about the things I love: video games and pen & paper games. I have a lot of passion for the gaming industry and I would love to be a part of it as either a journalist or a designer. For now, I aim to hone my writing and design skills with the help of this blog.

    Hi,

    Just reading your recent post. It’s nice to find a blog about games. Seems as though there aren’t too many blogs devoted to games on WordPress. Nice to find someone who puts his interests into words.
