About Tom Phillips

Tom was born in Niceville, Florida, a small coastal town slightly west of Florida's armpit. 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 decades later, he cringes with the knowledge that he is now a responsible adult that works a typical 7-4 and owns a life insurance policy.

Tom currently resides in the northeastern region of the mystical and oftentimes inscrutable land some call "Florida", with his beautiful wife Tonya, daughter Olivia, son Cade, niece Bella, a miniature schnauzer named Charlie, and an ever-growing reef aquarium.

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 Pathfinder.

Factoid: Tom fears and despises circus clowns. All clowns are hiding something.
