My name is Jason Owen Black, and I’m a writer and freelance game designer with a master’s degree in American history and a graduate certificate in gender studies. I’ve been playing RPGs since about 1995, and have been freelancing off and on since 2004 (mostly off before 2014). I grew up near Detroit and live in Seattle now.
I think that my training has given me some extra tools to develop settings that are well rounded and unique(ish). I know how to do research and I’m invested in diversity, so I’m willing to look beyond “traditional” sources of inspiration.
