Gary Rochambeau entered the St. Louis Roleplaying scene in the mid-eighties after his family relocated from Toronto. Realizing the Warhammer roleplay clubs were packed to bursting by Elf admirers, Dwarf lovers, Chaos Warriors and hundreds of human characters, he set up the Missouri Association of Role Playing Halflings. He lobbied for a change in the beginning stats of the Halfling character to further attract more players to that race. While ultimately successful, he was stuck with low scores resulting from the original rules.
