About Us

Rho Pi Gamma is a Gaming Podcast started by Byron Clark in an effort to help his fellow gaming brethren by spreading tips, tricks, and tools of the trade that he has gathered in his time in the world of table-top gaming. He hopes that he can help make other gamers’ experiences with their favored past-time greater, fuller, and of course more enjoyable for both Players and GameMasters around the world.

So just who is Byron Clark? Byron is a 30 year old native Northern Virginian, currently residing in South Western Pennsylvania, and a True Gamer, heart and soul. He’s been gaming for 14 years now, and GMing for 13 years. He was first introduced to gaming by the great classics on the NES and SNES and by his older brother Joe, a veteran AD&D player and DM. But it wasn’t until his oldest and Best Friend, Cyrus, introduced him to the Star Wars RPG (WEG d6 version) that he had found his calling. Within a year of learning the game, Byron had started working on his own campaign framework and, from there, started running his own games.

From those fateful days around the dinning room table and family room floor, Byron has started up RPG Clubs and gaming groups everywhere he’s gone. From the OC at Randolph-Macon Academy and the RPG Club at Art Institute of Washington, the first Official club of the school, to The Hoard of Arlington VA, the Sunday Star Wars Group of MindGames in Greenville NC and the Lucky 13 of Wayensboro PA, Byron has guided dozens into the fold of Gaming.

Byron has also versed himself in dozens of gaming systems and setting. Though his favored is his beloved D6 System of West End Games, he is experienced in Wizards d20 System for both D&D 3.5 and Star Wars d20 & Saga Edition, Guardians of Order’s Tri Stat system for Big Eyes-Small Mouth, and Last Unicorn’s Icon System for the Star Trek: The Next Generation RPG. He’s also dabbled in games/systems such as White Wolf’s Vampire: The Masquerade, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, and Mage: The Ascension, GURPS, the Serenity RPG, the Lord of the Rings RPG, and the new Anima RPG and is looking to expand on these further.

Currently, Byron is joined on Rho Pi Gamma by his Co-host Elizabeth Staley, a rare female gamer and Byron’s beloved wife. An exceptional artist and published author, Liz has also been gaming in various forms for near 12 years now. Starting with Original and Fan Based Message Board RP’s, and some AD&D for table-top flavor, Liz’s gaming horizons expanded even further when she was introduced to Star Wars D6 and to Byron at the AiW RPG Club. Since then, Liz and Byron have been working as a team for life, love, and better Gaming.
