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.

revised Impact of removing Dragonborn from Khorvaire
"Dragonkin" is not a 4E D&D race; "dragonborn" is the appropriate term.

@Pyrodante And I usually have to dissuade them from dropping 6 into the relevant Power Stat. :)

@Pyrodante I hesitate to bring it up, but… theft? I mean, there's that Larceny skill on the sheet just sitting there. :)

comment Is a stake in the heart really this difficult?
@Pyrodante With Willpower and a heavy hammer, many things are possible. Have you seen the Hammer Horror films of the 1960s? Staking a vampire sometimes takes three or four tries to get right.

comment Possible explanations for the Mourning?
@Thank you. It struck me one day and I've been looking for the right group to spring it upon.
