Appalachian Pathfinder Lodge Venture Lieutenant, Michael Tracey


Venture Lieutenant Michael Tracey

Michael has been an enthusiastic member of the Asheville Pathfinder lodge since his first PFS game winter of 2012-13.  As a seasoned role-player, dating back to when he was under the age printed on the D&D box, Michael took to the episodic nature of PFS and never stopped running scenarios.

  • Favorite Scenario to run: Sewer dragons of Absalom.
  • Favorite tactic he’s hypocritical about:  Familiar casts Ill Omen, then your witch casts <insert nasty spell>.  Great for playing bonekeep, but not at his table (please?)

When not playing or running Pathfinder, Michael is a proud father of a ★★★★★ PFS GM and enjoys photography.  For a day job, he does some obscure task that involves complicated things with a computer.
