Description Edit | History

Ross Watson is an award-winning game designer with more than 50 RPG books under his belt, many as Lead Developer for the Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay line. He was a core developer on the Dust Warfare and Shadowrun: Sprawl Gangers miniature game teams, and the lead writer for the Darksiders II console and PC game. He has written or contributed to books for 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, and the Iron Kingdoms RPG.

Ross hosts the [gamerstavern.org Gamer’s Tavern] podcast, a weekly show focusing on games, gaming, and game design. He successfully crowdfunded Accursed, a dark fantasy setting of his own creation for Savage Worlds. Ross consults with companies on narrative, design, development, and IP management issues.

He has a website featuring reviews, interviews, and thoughts on game design at therosswatson.com.
