Sean K. Reynolds is a professional game designer who has worked on and co-written a number of Dungeons & Dragons supplements for Wizards of the Coast, as well as material for other companies.
History[edit | edit source]
Reynolds first entered the role-playing game industry in 1995, when he was hired by TSR, Inc. as their online coordinator, beating out Bruce Cordell for the same position. When TSR was bought out by Wizards of the Coast (WotC) in 1997, Reynolds became part of the WotC web team. Reynolds considers one of his greatest achievements of this time to be the fact that he got TSR/Wotc to relax its "draconian" online policy—enforcement of which in the past was the cause of much bad blood between the company and fans. Reynolds also did some design work for the company during this period, writing RPGA adventures and contributing to Children of the Night: Ghosts.
By 1998, Reynolds had left his web position and was working full time for WotC as a designer as part of "Team Greyhawk," the creative team tasked with revitalizing TSR/WotC's oldest campaign setting.
Reynolds was laid off from WotC in 2002, and since has formed his own company, "Sean K. Reynolds Games". He continues to freelance, but has stated that he will "probably not" be writing any more books for WotC again, though he continues to write for the company's website.
