ERIC WILE

Eric Wile is a credited video game designer. He has done level design, story boarding, concept design, game engine design. He currently resides in Colorful Colorado.

His passion for gaming started when he was young. He started playing the Atari when he was young and was so good that he collected a wide scale of badges and letters from the game companies. He even got mentioned as one of the top 25 players in the nation when he was only 8. During this time he started to develop a reputation at the arcades in Colorado as the player to beat. He broke many long held records for the Atari as well.

In 2002 Eric moved to San Diego for the chance of a life time. He accepted an offer from Verant Interactive. Verant later bought by Sony and the name was changed to Sony Online Entertainment. They started producing and developing MMO’s and ironically at the time this was Sony's most profitable division.

During his time at SOE, Eric had a major hand in the development of several titles such as EverQuest, EverQuest II, PlanetSide, Star Wars: Galaxies and Vanguard Saga of Heroes.

Aundrea Grumbo

A proud and lifelong “Girl Gamer” entered her first gaming tournament at the age of 6. It quickly became obvious that you couldn’t separate Aundrea from the world of gaming. She played casually until turning professional in 2007 when she ran into Pandora’s Mighty Soldiers at SXSW. The PMS Clan (formally Psychotic Man Slayers) changed Aundrea life. Playing for PMS Delta team, she worked her way through the ranks, became the Halo 3 Divisional Leader and took four teams to compete in the MLG 2009 Circuit. From there, she lead the team to write the Halo ODST Prima guide which became one of Prima’s bestselling guides. She finally became a “made woman” by the PMS clan who honors her as a lifelong Elite Member! She's currently playing Halo 5, Rainbow 6, and occasionally adds in Destiny as a side dish. Aundrea’s passion for gaming put her on the path to her dream job, as the Public Relations extraordinaire for Dell and Alienware in Austin, Texas where she currently works. Needless to say she is a huge gaming advocate and is blessed to have the opportunity to speak about the influence women and social media have had on the gaming world at events such as SXSW, MLG (Major League Gaming), GDC (Games Developer Conference), ComicCon Austin, IKKiCon and QuakeCon. Aundrea’s goal is to continue traveling the world inspiring other women to join the wonderful world of gaming and technology!

MICHAEL SATRAN

Michael has been gaming since 1979, and running his Champions / Hero System universe since 1987. A graduate of Rutgers University, with a master's degree in English from the University of Rhode Island, he is currently working on The Imperial Throne, an asian supervillain supplement for Champions Complete.

His first novel. Hellbow Rune, was released at Gencon 2014 and sold out long before the convention was over. It's a dark fairy tale about the wrong girl who goes to the wrong woods, meets the wrong people and creatures, and has some very wrong adventures. It's like a creepy, evil Wizard of Oz. Far more Brothers Grimm than Walt Disney, this story will take you to the land of all the fairy tale characters that didn't make it.  Michael is currently working on Alison L., an urban fantasy novel based on Alice in Wonderland, and the sequel to that book, The Boiling Hot Sea. Flowers in the Madhouse, the third book in a series of thirteen, is in development.

 

ALLEN HAMMACK

Allen the “Master of Mythology”, writes with authority on using myths and legends of the world in gaming. He wrote three books on the subject (Fantastic Treasures I and II, and Monsters of Myth & Legend III) for Mayfair Games. His newest module is Night of the Black Swords for DieCast Games, with Lawful Evil characters on a mission to the Nine Hells. Currently Allen is editing and managing a new espionage RPG by the author of the original Top Secretfor the “new” TSR game company. He contributed to the new edition of the WWI boardgame Dawn Patrol. In addition, Allen designed a boardgame based on the mythical Norse battle of Ragnarok, and was a chief editor of Deities & Demigods and Dungeon Masters Guide during the five years he served at TSR. Hired by Gary Gygax, Allen was Manager of Designers during the “Golden Era” of TSR, supervising a talent pool that included Tracy Hickman, Harold Johnson, Lawrence Schick, Zeb Cook, Tom Moldvay, and others. In his gaming career, Allen has contributed to some 70 products as author, designer, editor, or developer. These include the popular classic C2: Ghost Tower of Inverness; A1-A4: The Slave Lords Series; I9: Day of Al-Akbar; the games Top Secret and Boot Hill, and the tournament AD&D adventure Night of the Black Swords. His Ghost Tower of Inverness module is firmly established as a pop culture standard. It was recently reference by name in the TV series “The Goldbergs” in the episode “Dungeons & Dragons, Anyone?” It also was referenced in the 2005 movie Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God, as Berek says the cleric was with him “at the assault on Castle Inverness”. (At which point a veteran player of Allen's campaign said, “Now we know it's a fantasy—implying anyone went to Inverness and came out alive!”) Allen's current gaming interests are mostly directed towards railroad boardgames and Dawn Patrol (he's a nationally ranked competitor in both), and World of Warcraft.
