From Dias Ex Machina Games website:
Chris Tavares Dias is the literary equivalent of that crusty burnt cheese at the bottom of the fondue pot. He was probably born between 1970 and 1994. After years editing public forums and local publications, he pursued writing. In a decade of screenwriting, all he had to show for it was a half dozen unregistered spec scripts and an unaired British TV pilot he was never paid for.
In the vast expanse of role playing, Chris was lucky enough to be signed onto two game companies, promising to publish work under his name, only months before the companies folded. In all that time, he maintained his website of Serenadawn.com and continued to produce free work, netting a monstrous $175 in donations since 1996. Several of these games garnered temporary and fleeting recognition in select circles across the globe. Amethyst is his first official publication.
Chris Dias thinks he is Asian but is actually Portuguese-Canadian. In his spare time, he types phony biographies about himself and dreams of a time he could “dance and play the violin.” Despite accusations and assumptions given his marital state, he is admittedly not gay. Some people claim he looks like Mathew Perry. He would like that to be true. It's not.
In July, 2008, Chris was last seen staring at a dead raven that had fallen beside his car. Two months later, his watch and notepad were found in the stomach of a basking shark that washed ashore off the coast of Florida.
