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 should a DM do if a player wants to do something impossible?
@Pavel I think the answer contains that: it is good because it establishes that this world runs on a simulationist engine. The rules are basically physics -- anything can be tried, but there's no guarantee the challenge will be within the range of possibility for you. That's something that many players enjoy.

@RenanMalkeStigliani I think I've found the core of it. See if this is clearer.

comment Faster technomancer play — what dice formulas should I have on hand?
Welcome to the site, Eforen. I'm curious: I thought that the technomancer was designed to avoid the decker problem of being a god in the Matrix and useless outside. What makes you feel like you can't do anything in meatspace?
