I am going to go in a very unexpected direction then what I think most will with today’s question. Many who know me will likely think that I will say Monte Cook. I am such a huge fan of the company and everything they have been up to in the last few years. But that is not my choice.
My favorite RPG writer is actually a team of writers. For today’s questions my favorite writers are Gary Gygax & Dave Arneson . When it comes to down to it this has to be my pick. Without Gary and Dave there would be none of this. These two did what many of us since have done and more of us should do or should have done. They played a game and made a bunch of house rules. They liked those rules so much that they decided that they would write these rules down and sell them as a game! And Thus the world changed forever.
