I'm Savannah Broadway, the newest resident of Internistan, which was established by my fellow intern, Jerome. For those of you that were wondering, he's still alive and well as far as I know—our schedules don't often overlap, lest we be forced to knife-fight to the death over the computer. I don't know if you all remember the pictures of the desks of previous interns, but our realm has relocated to the warehouse. On the plus side, this means access to a lovely set of windows that mostly overlook bushes and bit of the parking lot, and getting to listen in on whatever music the warehouse crew is currently playing.
I'm new to the state of Washington, having temporarily relocated here from tiny southern Illinois. Next fall will be my junior year at Southern Illinois University Carbondale studying Creative Writing and working in the Preservation lab. I've been into reading and writing for as long as I can remember, but I started roleplaying games about two and a half years ago. Since then I've loved the storytelling aspect of the game, both as a player and a GM. I enjoy running bards, barbarians, a few sorcerers, and once a chaotic good necromancer with an undead dodo familiar named Percy.
Working at Paizo (even for the week or so that I've been at it) has been a blast. The first time I pulled into the parking lot I saw that the car next to me sported a pair of fuzzy d20s and knew that I had found the right building. My tasks so far have been writing summaries for some of the Pathfinder Tales, working on maps, and updating the infamous Rules Database. Also on the list is braving Cosmo, who hasn't quite given up on insisting that I bring him coffee and likes to try to act like a ninja. On another note, you'll be able to see my very first work for Paizo in the upcoming Pathfinder Adventure Path #59: The Price of Infamy.
All in all, I'm sure that this summer will be a blast. The database may be intimidating and the mouse wheel may refuse to scroll down, but I can't think of any other place I'd rather intern. With any luck, I'll see you all at PaizoCon!
Sounds like I might have to show you where the one in North Bend is. It is only a 35 minute drive from the office. One way. But, hey, that is MUCH closer than Illinois!
DANGIT! LISA! You ruined my chance to have the biggest PFS turnout we have ever had locally. If I told people we were going to have some actual Paizo employees in town (even if it was just here to get crepes), I bet I could have attracted people from all over the place to play games with them. Blargh! :P
Edit: Also, I'd like to say how simply amazed I am by the number of people who are either from southern Illinois or have been here to attend SIU that are on these boards.
