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's the game in which the PCs themselves have character sheets?
There's a reference to the "Magnum Opus" program, where GOO was going to serve as publisher for independent, already developed RPGs that needed a line toward print publishing and access to distribution. GoO was going to be the home of Hogshead Publishing products like Nobilis. The disposition of those books, and the money that came from selling them, was a matter of some acrimony later on.
