Welcome Julie Iaccarino!

Thursday, March 26, 2015

As any good secret society knows, a cult just isn't a cult without a regular influx of fresh me... er... dangerously motivated new team members. As such, I am pleased to announce the newest member of Paizo's technology team Julie Iaccarino! Julie amazed us with her technical savvy, enthusiastic personality, and daunting knowledge of gaming essentials.

Hello fellow humans and non-humans!

I'm the newest program-code-maker and my name is Julie Iaccarino! Some people might also know me as "Muse," "biscuitWizard," or "Hey, you!" I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with Paizo, and hope to make the awesomest of things.

For the basics, I defer to excerpts from a review written by a friend:

  • Pros: She cooks, she's got a fun sense of humor, and her grunts and gestures form a simple yet elegant language, beautiful in its own way.
  • Cons: She emits a steady ultrasonic whistle that causes dogs to bark, whine, and find religion. We think there's something wrong with her mechanical brain. Hitting her upside the head with a wrench doesn't seem to work. It's like pulling teeth getting her to listen to your mix tape.

Besides all that, I've been playing tabletop games since 2006 (my first being Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e!) There are many hobbies I enjoy, including programming games for game jams, reading, wrenching on things, electronics hacking, and cooking things.

Join me in handing her a lovely hooded robe (bedazzled for +3 to technomancy) and welcoming her to the Paizo technology team!

Thanks, everybody!

@Tanis: We're all doomed and we're all going to die on Friday. I HAVE MAGIC.


Welcome!

P.S. In case they forget to tell you, don't touch Cosmo. He's concentrated evil. One drop could turn you into a hermit crab.


Welcome, Julie!

Have you considered using your ultrasonic whistle as a defense against Cosmo? Though I suspect he's already found religion... his.

I promised Cosmo that he has permission at ANY time to come to my desk and throw handfuls of glitter at me. It's too late for me, save yourselves.

Julie, we have to get you an avatar on here. There's like a law or something against Paizo staff not having custom pictures next to their names.

Question: Does visit mean 'bring a nerf gun to editorial staff' day? I have a small arsena-.. collecti-.. I have a couple.

I just want to be friends!

Working on selecting a profile image. In situ.

Thank you for the welcome, everybody!


Welcome!


Technology team expanding? Is the standoff between editors and developers causing other areas to feel threatened? Or is this preparation to fill in the power vacuum left over after mutual destruction of editors and developers alike?

Are you the secret tech team weapon to prevent/finish the war?

It just now occurs to me that Julie might be one of Soundwave's or Blaster's minicassette bots.


Better late then never welcome aboard.

In every job before this, I've been known as the token android. Now Robot is here, and I don't know what to do with my life. Or maybe Paizo is just hiring a bunch of machines.

I didn't! I just got to hear neat stories. I've been busy moving things.

I pick the things up then put them back down. But in a different spot than they were previously.

Everyone is old to me.

Just to remind everyone, 2006 was nine years ago.

2006 is in the 21st century. That's like, the future, or something.

2006? Thats roughly yesterday to me. That was the year I renewed my mags sub at paizo, IIRC. Started playing in 1984. The FEEL OLD attack hit me squarely in the face *ouch*.

Oh, and Welcome to the Madness :-) Never mind the old geezers around here, who may be part of the office inventory.

1984? I had been playing for 6 years by then....

I'm not entirely without a heart (even if the one I have is a dark engine), health potions will be supplied to those who need them after my egregious assault on age. ;)

I look forward to seeing people at PaizoCon (If you're attending!) I'm sure that age thing affords people far more amusing stories than I have.

Though, I do have a picture of lazy harp seal.

Grand Lodge

Harp seals are awesome! Will you be at a table or two at the con, so everyone can bug, erm, chat during game sessions?

I'll be everywhere at Paizocon, yes. I will likely also attend a table if there's room, as I won't be running anything (this year).
