Just when you thought it was safe to come back to the Nuke-Con…
HE’S BAAAAAAAAAAAACK! The Nuke-Con Guest of Horror returns!
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 game-mastering 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 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 Shepherd 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”.
