Born and raised in Queensland, Ian has been a huge fan of gaming since he was first introduced to it at school in year 9. First starting with the original Top Secret RPG by TSR and then moving onto D&D much later, Ian has dedicated his life to gaming.
Ian has run many a successful Star Wars RPG Campaign of both D6 and D20 versions, with the longest running being the well known Moon Swing Chronicles campaign which lasted from 1994 through to 2001. Ian’s favourite though was the Arc Raider Legacy which dealt with the reasons for the creation of the separtist movement and how the machinations of Dooku helped things along. Ian has also run the D&D 3.5 Adventure Path Savaage Tide (Paizo) and is currently running Legacy of Fire (Pathfinder).
Ian has also played in countless Role Playing Games ranging from the simple to the hard core. Ian has played D&D (Basic, AD&D, 3.0, 3.5, and 4th – yes he missed 2nd edition and refused to play Essentials), Feng Shui, Mutants & Masterminds, Champions, The Call of Cthulhu, Pendragron, Conspiracy X (of which he was a play tester in the 2nd edition version of that game), Star Wars (D6, D20, and SAGA), Shadowrun, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Elf Quest, and countless others. Star Wars RPG is by far his favourite, followed closely by Pathfinder and its Golarion setting.
In 2006, Ian took his passion for games to the next level culminating in the running of the first Gen Con Australia in 2008 and 2009. Unfortunately things didn’t work out for 2010, but he hopes to bring back “Gen Con OZ” soon.
