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 Creating NPCs from Real-Life People
I think I've got it. In this game, his DM often populates encounters with NPCs to round off a party that's underpopulated. He'd like to have some of these NPCs inspired by people he knows, but built to be combat-capable, not ordinary humans. Since this is a 4E question, it's not as easy as it might be in 3.X D&D, where NPCs and PCs use the same creation rules.

comment In-game reason for no multiple supernatural templates in nWoD
Welcome to the site, André! It looks as though your answer concerns the old or classic World of Darkness. This question concerns the new World setting: Requiem, Forsaken, Awakening and so on.
