Description Edit | History

Steve Kenson (born June 16, 1969) is a writer and designer of fantasy role-playing games (RPGs) and related fiction.

Steve Kenson began working as an author and game designer in 1995. Kenson co-wrote the super-hero role-playing game Silver Age Sentinels, which was published by Guardians of Order in 2002. While working on Silver Age Sentinels, Kenson had pitched a setting called Freedom City for the game, but Guardians of Order turned it down. When Chris Pramas of Green Ronin Publishing asked Kenson if he would like to design a new d20-based superhero RPG, Kenson developed Mutants & Masterminds in 2002 and his Freedom City setting was published in 2003. In 2004, Kenson became the line developer for Mutants & Masterminds, and became a more frequent contributor to Green Ronin's products. Kenson teamed up with John Snead to produce Blue Rose, a romantic fantasy role-playing game published by Green Ronin in 2005. In 2007, Green Ronin published Kenson's Paragons setting for Mutants & Masterminds.

His most notable creation is the d20 System superhero roleplaying game Mutants & Masterminds for Green Ronin Publishing, which won multiple ENnie awards. He also designed True20 Adventure Roleplaying and the Freedom City campaign setting for Green Ronin. He has written material for many RPGs, including: Aberrant, Champions, DC Universe, the Marvel Super-Heroes Adventure Game, Shadowrun, Silver Age Sentinels, and his Mutants and Masterminds.

He has written ten RPG tie-in novels: seven for the original Shadowrun series, two for Crimson Skies, and one for MechWarrior. He wrote a first trilogy of Shadowrun books produced by WizKids Games after they acquired the Shadowrun property from FASA Corporation: Born to Run, Poison Agendas, and Fallen Angels.

In 1993, Kenson helped to found Nashua Outright, a social/support group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and questioning youth and their allies, in Nashua, NH. He worked with the group as a volunteer facilitator for thirteen years.

Kenson lives in Merrimack, New Hampshire, with his spouse, Christopher Penczak, a writer and teacher of witchcraft and metaphysics.
