My name is Tim Brannan, I write RPG books. Mostly horror, but I dabble in everything. I pretty much like any system I pick up.

So the truth is I am still a big geek. Yeah in High School (especially one in the Midwest) in the 1980s this was a liability, but today it is practically a status symbol! Or at least that is what I tell myself…

I have been playing Role-Playing Games forever it seems, but now I also write them. I tend to work on horror games, mostly ones with some level of magic in them. Games I have worked on in the past are “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Liber Mysterium: The Book of Witches and Warlocks”, a bunch of other D20 (D&D) books, and have contributed to a bunch of others. Though my pride and joy is “Ghosts of Albion RPG”, based the animations and novels by Christopher Golden and Amber Benson. It’s a Victorian Horror and just a really fun world.
