I'm Barad the Dwarf and I'm from Belgium. Next to that I love Boardgames, RPG's and Videogames so you will spot me on every domain the geek has (BGG, RPGG and VGG).
I'm also an admin. My main working spot is VGG, as I'm the event admin. That puts me in charge of thinking and executing all kind of strange and fun stuff to do. Keep an eye on the announecement section of the VGG homepage or even better, subscribe to the VGG news forums or the VGG Twitter account.
Since admin Stargate retired I also took over the links submissions. So every link posted on the geek passes by me for approval. If you need help with links, just send me a geekmail.
For the rest, happy gaming!
