Description Edit | History

In addition to numerous credits as an RPG designer, he has written for 'Dragon' and 'Dungeon' magazines, and was a board game artist for 'Harrow'.

One of the guest writers for the narrative-driven board game Sea of Legends. From that game's KS page: "James is a novelist, and the co-creator of 'Pathfinder' and 'Starfinder' for Paizo."

From his Amazon author profile:

" James L. Sutter is a co-creator of the Pathfinder and Starfinder Roleplaying Games. From 2004 to 2017, he worked as an editor and developer for Paizo Publishing, starting on Dungeon Magazine, moving on to do foundational work for Pathfinder, and eventually becoming the original Creative Director in charge of launching Starfinder, as well as the Executive Editor of the Pathfinder Tales novel line. In 2017, after guiding Starfinder through the most successful game launch in Paizo's history, he resigned from the company in order to write full-time.

James is the author of the novels Death's Heretic--ranked #3 on Barnes & Noble's Best Fantasy Releases of 2011 and a finalist for the Compton Crook Award for Best First Novel--and The Redemption Engine, which won the 2015 Scribe Award for Best Original Speculative Novel. In addition to a wealth of award-wining tabletop gaming material, he's also written comics, video games, and short stories for such publications as Escape Pod, Apex Magazine, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and the #1 Amazon best-seller Machine of Death. His anthology Before They Were Giants pairs the first published short stories of science fiction and fantasy luminaries with new interviews and g advice from the authors themselves.
