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.

@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?

In Awakening, you need to have five dots in the relevant Arcanum to create a rote. (Page 291) I don't think this group of PCs is there yet.
