About this author

Hi.

I wrote many of the sourcebooks for Mongoose Publishing's Conan the Roleplaying Game. I also like to draw and read. My favorite games include Wings of Glory and Settlers of Catan.

I teach business, economics, and accounting at Harrison College. I have three children and a lovely raven-haired wife.

As far as my personal education goes, I am a life-long learner. I graduated from Columbus North High School in 1988. I have a BS in business (with an accounting specialization) from Indiana University, and an MBA from National American University. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Organizational Management (with a specialization in Leadership).

My favorite authors include Robert E. Howard and Erle Stanley Gardner. My favorite novels are Dracula

Modiphius has announced that it is developing the new Conan Roleplaying Game. As many of you may know, I had quite the hand in writing the sourcebooks for the last Conan RPG... and so it may be with this game. Modiphius has asked me to be a part of this new RPG as well. I am so pleased to be on board with this new incarnation of the RPG!

While not as good as the first three volumes, REH remains in great form describing the fistic battles of Kid Allison and others.
Vincent Darlage is finished with Fists of Iron: Finished reading the miscellanea section, unfinished drafts and the like. Pretty good stuff.

I really enjoyed this novel. It has some interesting character growth and changes, nice commentary about the era, and great character introspection.
