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 Reconciling Conditions with Flaws?
Let me see if I understand: Your ST doesn't want to use conditions or beats. Nevertheless, there's a condition that you want to take because it suits the character precisely on a mechanical level. Do you still want the XP boost that would ordinarily come from a flaw/condition, or is it just the 9-again/no-10-again that you want?
