I've been playing tabletop games since I was 12 and video games since I was old enough to hold a controller. I'm working on my own game system and at the same time constantly cranking out idea for items/creatures/etc for whatever games I'm playing in/running at the time.
For the most part I'm my game group's resident sage, being the only person willing to read the game books cover to cover as if they were novels.
My wonderful wife is working on a high seas fantasy adventure book that should hopefully be out within the next couple years. I guarantee it will be a must read just based off of what we've done with it so far.
