Articles by Jim

As a young lad, Jim stumbled upon a box in his uncle's garage. The box contained a mixture of comics, porn and second edition AD&D books. He was never the same again. Jim is an engineer, vintner, moustache enthusiast, karaoke champion and published author, working mostly on short stories and post-modern poetry. He currently works in the game design industry in southern California. Jim's talent with nitpicking details, drafting and design makes him an ideal world builder, and he never stops building on the group's home-brew. “My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.” ― Jack Kerouac
