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 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

comment Pros and Cons of giving my party a spell based on the Portal Gun from the Portal video game series?
@GMNoob I was guessing that the surface needn't be perfectly flat; those are hard to find in a medieval setting.
