My name is Ubiratan Pires Alberton, AKA Bira, and I’m a software developer from Brazil. I’ve been into roleplaying games ever since I was 10, and by now I’ve gotten to that point where I often think about statting up the stuff I see on media I enjoy in one system or another. I eventually decided to put some of those idle thougths to writing, and since most of the RPG material I’ve been reading for the past few years has been in English, that language is the one in which my ideas flow best.

Octopus Carnival is my RPG blog. It was originally all in English, but I’ve recently started translating some of its posts to Portuguese as well. Most of its content is GURPS-related, and usually deals with adapting something or other to GURPS. I try to update daily or as close to it as possible.
