Steven was neither raised by wolves nor orphaned as the result of an orc attack. He has, however, been rolling dice and delving dungeons since elementary school, and made it to junior high before his first character death. As a DM, he enjoys opposed skill checks, mimics, and random encounters on the beach.
Upon polling friends for Steve's backstory, the following were suggested:
- "Steven rode through the desert on a horse with no name. Then, to prove his dominance, he ate that horse. Now he lives somewhere in California as a vegan."
- “Steven was found on the doorstep of an inn by three squabbling dwarves. He was then traded for a keg of ale and a ham sandwich; he’s been trying to live up to the cost of that trade ever since.”
