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 use Passive Perception to have some characters notice parts of the environment?
@BrianBallsun-Stanton I think it's reasonable to think of the bird less as a creature and more as a piece of set-dressing in this circumstance. The bird isn't a monster — it's a detail worth discovering. Figuring a Stealth score for it isn't worth the time; set a DC and move on.

comment Using MuCo to add two extra arms
I don't see the need for a Mentem prerequisite — the ability to use your limbs seems like a natural result of having them, especially having made them through magic.
