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 What do the Strix look like when they are “flying”?
Beat me by moments. I was surprised there was an answer to this.

comment Does a line of salt prevent a baned entity from crossing?
I think you've got it. Drawing the boundary in salt is enough to demarcate it, preventing the spirit from floating through.

comment I want to run an RPG inspired by Monáe's 'Metropolis' concept series
@BESW The funny thing is that I playtested a game last weekend that will be ideal once it comes out for real. Cindi Mayweather was one of the sample characters, even. I'll take a look when I have the chance.

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.
