About Tom Phillips

Tom was born in Niceville, Florida. (Seriously. Niceville.) He fell in love with monsters and the macabre at an alarmingly young age, and fondly recalls scribbling a very disturbing number of monsters-eating-stick-people scenes that, had his parents been slightly more responsible, should surely have landed him in psychiatric care.

Tom attended the University of South Carolina (Gooooo C#cks!), where he somehow lucked into snagging a lucrative English degree. Some xx years later, he cringes with the knowledge that he is now a [quasi-]responsible, married adult, that works a typical 8-5 and owns a life insurance policy.

Tom resides in the northeastern part of the mystical and oftentimes inscrutable land some call Florida, with his beautiful wife Tonya, daughter Olivia, son Cade, a Yorkie named Arayo, and a kitty-cat named Byron.

Tom began gaming in 1980 with the D&D Basic Set. After cutting his teeth on the various incarnations of D&D, he's played many other games, but his all-time favorites remain D&D, Call of Cthulhu, and Traveller. Currently, ever since its brilliant inception, Tom's game of choice is Pathfinder ... though he has taken a recent shine to FFG's Star Wars RPG.

Factoid: Tom fears and despises circus clowns.
