Description Edit | History

Shannon Appelcline is a computer scientist, technical writer, and gamer. He's written for a variety of fanzines over the years, but he's also worked professionally in the roleplaying field, including freelance books for White Wolf, Green Knight, and Chaosium in the '90s and a stint of full-time work for Chaosium as an editor and layout artist. Since the '00s, he's worked as the Vice President of Skotos Tech, an online game company that also owns RPGnet, where he is the editor-in-chief. His best-known work is probably Designers & Dragons, an extensive history of the roleplaying field published in the early '10s, then expanded and reprinted in the late '10s.
