I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

comment Charnel Houses of Europe: Geist Dread Domains/Dark Kingdoms
@SevenSidedDie To the extent that it's answerable, it's a conversion question: "How could I use the European settings, places, and entities described in W:tO's DKoW from CHoE:TS as part of an Underworld in Geist?"

comment It is possible to make Vampires, Night-Elves and Warforged to play along?
It wasn't, I'm afraid — MCWoD was a New World of Darkness riff.

Not actually concerned with questions of genre or the nWoD particulars.

comment How does dungeon world combat work?
Howdy, JoshTheNoob1776, and welcome to the site. Quick question: have you read the Dungeon World rulebook? I ask, because there's a whole chapter on how combat works, and most of the rest is spelled out on your playbook. Once you've done that, if you've got more questions, feel free to ask them.

comment Can a Vampire fall unconscious due to physical damage without entering torpor?
That's correct. If you want to have a vampire taken out without rendering him near-torpid, stake him.

@BESW It's a fair cop. Think there's any way to improve it at this late date?

comment What happens when you lose a Merit or Flaw's prerequisites?
@HeyICanChan The flaw is meant for young, almost naive vampires or those who are playing through the struggle for Humanity. (Think of Louis, from Interview with a Vampire, as an example.)
