Description Edit | History

Here is a bio and a list of the professional titles I've worked on:

Who He Is

Born 1960 in Abbotsford BC, son of local teachers James and Alice Bennie, and younger brother of Vancouver radio announcer/producer Jim Bennie, Scott graduated from Abbotsford Senior High School, where he competed on the high school wrestling and Reach For the Top teams, and was class president. Scott became attracted to RPGs during his senior high school years, having been introduced to them at V-Con in Vancouver in 1977. On a whim, he began submitting articles to Dragon Magazine, making his first sale in 1981, and eventually becoming a respected freelancer for TSR Inc.

In 1981, Scott encounered a game called Champions, which a friend had brought back from Pacific Origins where it debuted. Scott fell in love with it immediately. He submitted the review of Champions in Dragon Magazine, and eventually freelanced for Hero Games, producing some of its mostr acclaimed titles. Eventually he published his long-runing Gestalt campaign as a sourcebook for Blackwyrm Games.

In 1986, Scott graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education from the University of British Columbia. His attempts to find a teaching career were stymied by a poor local economy. A job offer from TSR Inc fell through in 1989, however, at the recommendation of Aaron Allston, he was hired in the electronic game industry at Interplay Productions in 1990.

Scott enjoyed many successes at Interplay, which grew from 20 employees to over 400 during his tenure. Unfortunately, he developed both CMT and diabetes while wprking there, and a downturn in the industry coupled with some management changes and led to his departure from Interplay. Scott returned to Canada to resume his freelance writing career, writing Testament and Villainy Amok (both of which were nominated for the game industry's highest awards) while caring for his ailing mother.

Gradually, as the market for RPG supplements dried up, Scott found himself out of work. He's turned to teaching again, graduating from VCC's PID program to once again looking for teaching work. A devoted Christian, Scott also leads a home Bible study and assists at his church's cold weather shelter program.
