My name is Jeff Ibach, Iím married (to one of my players, of course) have two beautiful daughters, live in Mount Holly New Jersey, and Iíve been playing Dungeons & Dragons since January 1st 1980. Music of choice is The Cars/Ric Ocasek. Favorite vehicle is Chevrolet Monte Carlo.


The Campaign Sourcebook and Catacomb guide quotes "If you are an experienced Dungeon Master then you are sure to know there are times when this task is so daunting that you wonder why you didn't stick with a safe hobby like stamp collecting." I remember the first edition DMG asking the eternal question "Is DMing a science or an art?" (the answer is, of course, both). But it also noted, above all, it's a labor of love. I love DMing much more than playing. There's nearly no better feeling to me than after the table is cleared of players following a successful, memorable, well-played gaming session. To me it's a source of pride and accomplishment.


Iíve also been a freelance writer and d20 mechanics editor for many successful game companies. I am also the webmaster of DMís Haven.My full d20 credits are listed below.
