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.

Can you give an example of a "plot hole" that she pointed out, and how you changed your game accordingly? I'm wondering why you'd want to close them — a plot hole is a perfect place for the PCs to take action to change the nature of the game.

comment Which rote spell would a Mage detect an Azlu with?
Tough one. The text makes a point of emphasizing how difficult it is to detect Azlu once they've nested inside the head. Detecting the threads of Essence with Supernal Vision might be the best option, but I'll give it another look-see.

@Pureferret There could be. Why don't you put the power write-up in the question so we can offer suggestions?

Do you mean Venom, the Marvel Comics character, or just different kinds of poisons?
