Teem has been having fun playing, running and writing more LARPs during the last year than ever before, meeting lots of great people along the way and thanking them for flying Imagineerium. He finds it hard to believe he has been LARPing for over fifteen years. He is using his superpowers for good, as promised, by chairing this convention. He has also read everyone's bio. Assuming his brain doesn't explode with the effort of chairing Intercon D, he plans on continuing to writing more LARPs with TNT Productions and playing in even more LARPs in the coming year.
Gordon Olmstead-Dean began writing and producing Live Action Roleplaying Games with the administration of a "Killer" Dart Pistol Live Game in spring of 1984. His first written effort was the minigame now known as "A Birthday Surprise," in June of 1986. In January of 1988 he produced his first full-length work, "Covention I," with Ken Brown. Currently Gordon has produced over a hundred and ten live action events, and acted as lead writer on more than seventy five live roleplaying events including games in three ongoing campaigns.
Gordon is a past President and current CSO of LARPA (formerly the ILF) and, and has served on the Board of Directors and in various other capacities supporting Live Roleplay since 1990.
His current principal goal in LARP is recording and consolidating information to make it easier for new GMs to learn how to run LARP events successfully. He compiles his own notes and data, along with the very valuable insights of other group experiences and suggestions from various partners at his LARPwriting.ORG website.
When not writing games Gordon relaxes with his wife Stephanie at their decaying Edwardian manse in Hagerstown, Maryland, and pursues a sybaritic lifestyle.
