I could probably look this up on ye ol' internet but I thought I would ask you directly. What projects have/were you been involved in both as TSR and afterward? I know about Red Steel but what else? Have you written anything for 35e or any other system or simulacrum game?
I worked on 50+ pieces for TSR, most credited, some not (for example, I wrote or co-wrote most of the songs that appeared in the April issues of Dragon in the early 90s). Here are some of the big ones, or pieces that would be of interest in the Piazza.
* Monstrous Manual (put it together, did the art order, standardization)
* Monstrous Compendiums: Mystara, Fiend Folio, others.
* Thri-Kreen, for Dark Sun
* City of Delights, for Al-Qadim
* Factol's Manifesto (a bit less than half), for Planescape
* Maztica (adventures and monsters in the boxed set and in Fires of Zatal)
* Magitech, for the Amazing Engine line
* Pages from the Mages, for Forgotten Realms
I also did bits for Dragonlance, Ravenloft, Spelljammer, and Gamma World.
After leaving TSR, I put together Rascals, Varmints, and Critters for Pinnacle's Deadlands game and did some bits for West End's Hercules & Xena game. More recently, I did Lost City of Grynix for the Ramlar system from White Silver.
As far as the d20 system, I don't seem to have anything published for 3.5 -- yet. I did a fair amount of 3.0 work for Fast Forward (DungeonWorld and other books) and did a portion of Upload: Etherpunk for the Etherscope game from Goodman Games (d20 Modern).
What version of DnD do you play/run? Is there a favorite version of DnD?
I currently run a moderately modified 3.5 game, and I'd have to say that 3.X is my favorite version of D&D. There are a small number of root reasons for this: 1) The skill system works (which is an advantage over 2E, in which the skill system was bolted on after the system was done, and as a result was kind of clunky -- not bad, just not smooth); 2) multi-classing became really easy, and works pretty well; 3) the open gaming license encouraged lots of settings in the system, so if I want to run a game with a Jedi, a cowboy, a cyberpunk, and an elf, all world-hopping through a Stargate -- and I have run that kind of game -- I can; 4) except for a few strange omissions (grappling, for one) the system is integrated and consistent, with the different pieces working well together.
What's your favorite color? What's your middle name? Do you drink beer? Can you run an eight minute mile? What's 2+1 or the square root of 2?
Currently aqua, often black, sometimes gold.
Yes, but not as much as I used to (and living near Seattle, with lots of microbrews and imports, I've gotten kind of spoiled). I have been known to drink some beer at GenCon and other conventions.
I used to be able to, but not any more.
I get to choose? 3 or 1.414. (I'm actually pretty good at math, so feel free to ask some more advanced questions.
I think that's enough questions for now.
If you're sure ...
Thanks for asking!
