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 How to discourage players from roleplaying out of their alignment when using a 3.5e alignment system in a 4e game?
Only as commentary: I like the 5-alignment system, but only when I switch the ends around. Lawful Good is less "good" than Good, and Chaotic Evil is less "evil" than Evil. This allows for righteous-but-flawed paladins and bad guys who'd rather party than rule. (Spike vs. Angelus, if you know Buffy.)

@Flamma There's no way to buy them with XP. After character creation, the only way to add Merits is to petition the Storyteller to add them to your sheet. (p.479) So I'm guessing you either get all the languages you want at character creation (possibly with the help of the Natural Linguist merit) or roleplay your way through it.

This is kind of what I had in mind.
