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 can multiple sclerosis be represented in nWoD?
I think your emphasis on "unreliable" is a little misplaced. It's an NPC, which means your Storyteller will be handling the rolls. Good roll? Good day. Bad roll? Bad day. Random chance and no specialties will give plenty of variance in results.

comment Using NWoD as general game system
An artifact of the way Amazon handles books it can't easily find. White Wolf has moved from traditional books-on-shelves publishing to a combination of electronic and print-on-demand manufacturing. The highly inflated price reflects that the book isn't in the distribution chain anywhere, which makes Amazon think print copies are rare. You can get one sent to you at a reasonable price through DriveThruRPG, here. drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=82477

Realized that the poster is not the Storyteller, but is simply creating an NPC for the ST to use.

comment Is one of the characters in my group overpowered?
An impossibly perfect, beloved-by-all heroine. It comes originally from Star Trek fandom, but has grown to a commonly used trope in the SF/fan community. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MarySue
