I am a Gamer.
Not computer gaming, REAL gaming, the kind you sit down at a table to play with actual real people who are sitting across from you, and you can see them and hear them and even throw a half a cookie at them and itíll hit them because they are, you know, right there. I have been playing games all my life. I have been working in the gaming industry since 1975.
These are the game companies that I have formed and worked for. Look inside the links to see my thoughts, memories of their publication histories, reflections and tales.
I founded Chaosium in 1975. We incorporated as Chaosium, Inc. several years later. While I was president we were world famous for the artistic style and content of our games, and I am infinitely proud of our deeds during that period. I left in 1998.
I founded Issaries, Inc. in 1998 for the specific purpose of publishing games based on Glorantha. I am still publisher, though the company is now a license holder and the games are published by other companies.
Greg Stafford Pendragon is my latest venture, a small press, not-available-in-stores venture.
These are roleplaying games that I have designed and co-designed. Look inside the links to see my memories of their
publication histories and other tales. Look under the various company descriptions to see the corporate and technical details
of their publication, etc.
