About Me

     As an RPG writer and a professional historian, it's only natural that I often blend the two interests together. I've written for GURPS, from Steve Jackson Games, for nearly 20 years (and playtested for a decade before that), but I've also contributed to Amarillo Design Bureau, and Big Eyes, Small Mouth (D20), as well as the Hostile setting for the Cepheus Game Engine. This is a venue to share some of my notes, research, and campaign documents. Drop me a line and tell me how you use history in your games.
