Steve DawesGuest of Horror

Just when you thought it was safe to come back to the Nuke-Con…
HE’S BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!

In the beginning was Steven, and Steven was with the Dawes, and Steven was a
Dawes. The first word he ever spoke was ‘Quote’, and expects the last word he'll
speak before he dies will be ‘Unquote’.

Like a lot of gamers, Steve cut his teeth on RPG’s by playing D&D with his
friends, and found it delicious and nutritious. After enjoying that for a while,
Steve’s love of comics led him to the discovery of the Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles and other Strangeness RPG by Palladium Books and fell hard for it right
away. After playing a few games, he purchased his own copy, making it the first
RPG he owned. However, as fate would have it, while at the game store he spotted
a copy of the Beyond the Supernatural RPG. Being a horror nerd from birth, the
idea of a “Supernatural Horror” themed RPG sparked a wildfire in his imagination.
He purchased both books that same day, and he never looked back.
Steven has been playing and gamemastering every Palladium Books RPG for more
than thirty years since then; Beyond the Supernatural, RIFTS, Dead Reign and
Nightbane in particular. Steve enjoyed playing and running Palladium adventures
so much that he eventually started writing articles for the quarterly RIFTER
sourcebook. In more recent years, Steve has begun writing sourcebooks, with the
Creature Feature sourcebook for Beyond the Supernatural being his first release.
More books containing his madman scrawling and scribbling will be unleashed
upon the masses soon… oh the horror!
Steven also hosts a fan site for Beyond the Supernatural (houseofbts.net) and other
Palladium games in general, and has recently started a series of YouTube videos
for the House, offers news, advice, Q&A’s, clarifications, and more. He’s also a
GM for hire, offering his services and adventures to players both near and far. On
occasion he’s even offered his services as a content editor.
When not writing, Steve can be found at home with his wife, his daughter and two
zany dogs. Being a victim of too many hobbies and not enough time, his hobbies
include volunteering with a local German Sheppard group, reading, board games,
video games, soundtrack collecting, karaoke, writing reviews, blogging, ghost
hunting and being a horror and paranormal enthusiast in general. Steven is also a
member of the Nuke-Con Board of Directors, by night known as "Staffer Steve".
