Which one of your creations do you yourself consider your greatest work?

Who of the new batch of creative whizz's would you most like to work with?

Is there a product for d20 that someone else did, that you wished you had created yourself?

Can we clone you to ensure future generations fo Gamers get to enjoy your work as much as we have? :D

What one thing would you have done differently in your career looking back now in hindsight?

What advice would you give to aspiring freelancers?

What genre or specific setting that is out there, would you most like to see converted to D20?

What piece of advice would you give to Wizards regarding thier approach to D20 and its marketing as a longterm gamer and creator?

Erm there you go off the top of my noggin.... :D

How has the d20 explosion affected your work on Lejendary Adventure?

Do you feel vindicated that the d20 system allows you to publish what is essentially D&D stuff for the D&D game?

Lately you have done a lot of d20 projects, including The Slayer's Guide to Dragons, the revamp of Necropolis, and the Canting Crew. Are these projects good examples of what you have planned or just a precursor to what is next? What d20 thing do you have in the works?

As a player, if you had to choose, would you rather adventure in the Forgotten Realms, or in Greyhawk?

What is you opinion of the Forgotten Realms as a campaign setting?



Sage of the Scarred Lands
If I offer you a blood sacrifice and get 50 copies of Necropolis, will do write for S&SS's Scarred Lands?

Okay maybe not...but serious, Gary, now with R&R2 out and since you wrote the preface for R&R1, do you think that quality of the stuff put out by S&SS has improved a great deal?

William Ronald

Do you have any plans to work on a new campaign setting, or revisit one that you have worked on in the past.

Who are some of the new designers you would like to work with?

If you could revisit any product you have worked on, what would it be?

What do you think of the gaming industry and the hobby as it stands now as opposed to the early 1970s?

What do you see as the future of our hobby, especially the role of computers and electronic products?


The 1st edition AD&D DMG (1979 - TSR Games) is adorned (front and back cover) with a David C Sutherland III rendering of three adventurers battling an efreet on the Elemental Plane of Fire. Was this inspired by one of the games that you ran (or played in) and, if so, what was the outcome of said battle?

Can we see a cease and desist of Lejendary Journeys material in the D20 books? I don't like dual statted books from AEG and Holistic Design, and this is a trend I'd like to see end.
