Today, I’m excited to publicly welcome the newest member of the Organized Play team, Mike Kimmel. Mike’s been one of Organized Play’s most dependable freelancers for years now, and the whole Organized Play team is glad to have him on board. He’s already hard at work on polishing Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-13: A Gilded Test, and you’ll be seeing plenty of his work in the Pathfinder Society line in the future. Take it away, Mike!
Hello! I’m Mike Kimmel, and last week I joined the Organized Play team as the newest Organized Play Developer. I’ve been freelancing for Paizo for the past six years following my Top 4 placement during RPG Superstar 2014. Some of my recent work includes the upcoming Starfinder Society scenario The Vast Experiment: Fast Choices, as well as contributions to the Lost Omens: Pathfinder Society Guide and Starfinder Alien Archive 4. I am also the founder of Freelance Forge, a forum community where current and aspiring freelancers can network and hone their skills.
One of my most memorable experiences working with the Org Play program was volunteering as a GM for GenCon 2018. I got to run seven sessions of the second edition playtest and one interactive special. I also witnessed the debut of my own interactive special, Pathfinder Society 10-00: The Hao Jin Cataclysm. I’ll never forget that event, and I look forward to attending many more conventions in the future, in person and online.
When I’m not working on role-playing games, playing role-playing games, or thinking about role-playing games, I am probably doing something to relax: spending time with my family, reading a book, playing Zelda (again), walking my dogs, or forcing anyone in the radius of my dad joke aura to make Will saves. You can sometimes find me fumbling with Twitter at @_MikeKimmel.
