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 do I explain stress to a d20 crowd?
As an aside, one way to convey how the stress track works mathematically is to suggest that the last box is "100% out of the fight," and that each box to the left of it is half the size of the one that follows. (So a three-box track would be 25%, 50%, 100%.) If you try to fill a box that's already full, you move to the next open box on the right.

comment Effect of modern society's exposure to the improbable on Paradoxes
In mage-awakening, Paradox is a result of drawing certain kinds of magic across the Abyss, rather than the result of disbelief -- although witnesses can exacerbate its effects. Maybe this question would be better as an Ascension question?
