Ryan Dickerson has loved games of all types for years since hearing his dad describe the wonders of the myriad worlds of Dungeon's & Dragons. Such fantasy worlds were simply a gateway of course to the larger world of gaming in all tops from tabletop to LARP. Ryan loves a good story above all else and has a particular interest in worlds of mystery and intrigue. When not writing stories of pulp detectives, creatures of the night and ancient ocean dwelling evils, Ryan is reading anything he can lay his hands on in the pursuit of further inspiration. Ryan acted as a designer for the Narrative Game System.
