About Thurston Hillman

So you want to know about me? First off, I'm the Developer for the Starfinder Society organized play campaign. In this capacity, I work alongside the rest of the Organized Play team to bring you the best campaign we can provide!

As for my personal life...

Well, I was born and raised in chilly Winnipeg, Manitoba—that’s in Canada for all you non-Canadian folks out there. I grew up in French immersion schools, but I don’t profess to be fluent in the language. I do speak somewhat passable french. Grammar and spelling in french still eludes me… as does english, but that’s what editors are for! [Tip your editors, folks]

At the age of eight I started getting into role-playing games when a wacky cousin of mine came over and showed me several D&D books. A few weeks later I was down at the local game store and got roped into a game of Battletech down in the stuffy basement of the store. From that point onward, I was hooked.

For three years I was an editor on the TenTonHammer network, working under the pseudonym Ratboy, where I managed their World of Warcraft site and had a brief tenure on the Warhammer Online site.

Now, I work full-time in the game writing industry. While continuing my specialization in writing for the games industry, I’m also available on contract for a variety of other writing. I do consultation work in the IT industry, offering content fulfillment, process documentation, and project management services.

Check out my website, where I [sometimes] talk about all sorts of RPG-related things: www.oncallgm.com
