I’m Chuck “Doc” McGrew — AKA the Retro Roleplayer. I’ve been playing tabletop and computer role-playing games and gamebooks off and on for more than four decades. Along the way, I’ve designed a few of my own like Don’t Look Back (DLB) the paranormal / conspiracy horror RPG that’s a best seller on DriveThruRPG, a five-star rating on Amazon, and was voted as one of the top 50 games of all time.

My day jobs, family, and school pulled me away from the hobby for several years but I am finally at a point where I have a little time and a bucket list of game projects I’ve been working on for decades. I know I’m not the only old nerd out there who still likes gaming but just doesn’t have as much time or a stable schedule to play in a regular campaign. Lately, I’ve been spending time playing and developing some solo role-playing games and adventures. I’ll mention some of those here as well as some new design projects.
