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.

They do want you to buy that Compendium, after all. ;)

How would that differ from a basic melee attack, then?

Along those lines: in an E6 game, characters are limited to sixth level. I've got to imagine that the racial templates you're using have to add some amazing amounts of ECL — is the DM ignoring that for the purposes of this game?

Fun fact: camels don't have hooves. They have feet with toes -- it's the thing that keeps them from being kosher.

The differences between Cortex and Cortex Plus are significant enough that they need their own tag.
