As a lifelong gamer, Neil has built up a great deal of gaming knowledge; from boardgames and wargames, to console, PC, & browser games, with a festering chunk of (mostly fantasy) role-playing games thrown in for good measure. There are very few game system rule books which Neil is not at least aware of. He has dabbled in game design and photography, and for a brief time was a magician’s apprentice. Neil’s current day job revolves mostly around working at laboratories in geographically hostile environments. He’s been told he looks like a cross between King Charles II and Hagrid. On a good day. Mostly by his wife, Magz.
