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.

@Cthos No, it's in the back of the Core Book. Page 277, as an example of Extras.

@Robert Even in games that don't use them, the fiction-first nature of Fate means that having a sword allows you to do things you couldn't do if you didn't have one. Can't fence without a blade, for example, and fists don't do cutting damage. It shapes the kinds of Attacks you can make and the Advantages you can create.
