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.

revised Do specialties stack?
I learned of revolving longarms, and had to reevaluate my stance on something.

@Pureferret Okay. I have learned of a new thing. If I knew more about firearms, I could figure out whether revolver shotguns should share a specialty with revolver pistols or with the other kinds of shotguns. As I do not, I'd still probably look askance, but with less skepticism.

comment Can you put high-power aspects on starting characters in Fate Core?
@Robert Sure, he could. He's a billionaire; buying a new car or a plane is probably not even a challenge for him. Buying a house, or a crate of guns, or uranium? Those could be challenges for anyone, billionaire or not. He'd have to use his Resources skill, and then, if he didn't like the outcome, he could spend the Fate Point and remind you that he's "a lovable billionaire" and get the +2 or the reroll. And if you disagree with where I put the benchmarks, that's fine; you're the GM and you should set them where you feel comfortable.
