All good games start with a good story. A virtual world, no matter how technically perfect or advanced, will feel hollow and half-finished, without compelling characters, history, mythology, and plot.
I've worked on a handful of independent projects (mainly single-player RPG MODs) in the very early stages of world building, character development, and story arc plotting.
Up till now my professional career in technology has been focused on security, electronic banking, and e-commerce.
World-building, story development, character creation, etc, (all the 'soft', writerly parts that lay down the game world's foundation).
I'm a 15-year cyber security veteran in the online banking and financial services industry and a life-long gamer. I'm also a novelist and short story author.
