Advanced Adventures is a sandbox (no specific world - in fact, the publishers don't encourage anything world specific), and my two adventures are not linked. That being said, I do have conversion notes to help a DM set them on Mystara.

Got another celebrity for your list Havard.

Deborah Teramis Christian (Teramis) worked under the name Deborah Christian for TSR (but now goes by Teramis). She worked on Kara-Tur and Dragonlance fantasy campaign settings. She also worked on Tales of the Outer Planes (the sequel to Manual of the Planes that was published before Planescape was created) a host of generic fantasy products and Top Secret. Talking of "top secret" she also worked under another name (Terry Randall) for Mayfair Games (where, among other things, she worked on City-State of the Invincible Overlord). Teramis has also worked for West End Games (on Star Wars), Palladium Press (on Battletech), Flying Buffolo Press (on the Citybook range) and more. As well as that, she has a fictional oriental world, called Qua-lun that is tied into a far-future sci-fi empire, called The Sa'adani Empire, for her novels, and both these exist as unpublished RPG campaign settings. (She has been discussing her free Quq-lun novel in this thread.)

Is it ok to mention ourselves? I am certainly not up to the illustrious capabilities of most on this list but I do have a few credits to my name. I've written for Adventure a Week, Paradigm Concepts (both for their Witch Hunter Revelations line and a forthcoming Rotted Capes campaign), Melior Via (an unreleased, as yet, adventure world), Margaret Weis Productions (on both their Serenity and Supernatural lines), and Catalyst Game Labs (all from their Shadowrun line).

Sure it is. But Havard might have trouble working out who you are from your forum name. :)

Do you have a blog or webpage where you talk about the stuff you have written? If you do, you might want to add a link to your signature, so that people can find it.

Also, if you have any new stuff that comes out, there is an "industry news" forum at The Piazza (called The Wishing Well) where you can post threads about new products (without it being viewed as spam).

I'm pretty new and small time, but as mentioned on other posts I was a contributing author for the Paizo Publishing Jade Regent AP, The Empty Throne module, as well as having created the original city of Kasai map for that as well.

I co-published, Assassin's Amulet, a guide to 3x/PF assassins with Johnn Four of Roleplayingtips.com

The Kaidan setting of Japanese horror (PFRPG) is my published setting as an imprint under Rite Publishing. Although as an author, my only product where I did everything, except editing is Haiku of Horror: Autumn Moon Bath House, however, I did concept creation, some design, created the basic outline and all maps for the following Kaidan product releases: Curse of the Golden Spear (mini-arc of 3 modules); one-shot modules: Frozen Wind, Up from Darkness, and Tolling of Tears; 3 racial supplements: In the Company of Kappa, In the Company of Henge, In the Company of Tengu; 2 class/faction supplements: Way of the Samurai and Way of the Yakuza; and a haunts guide: #30 Haunts for Kaidan.

There's a few other smaller writing credits I will soon have for other small publishers creating oriental content, and describing how these designs can be applied for use in Kaidan.

Otherwise, I've created published maps for Iron Crown Enterprises, Paizo Publishing, Rite Publishing, Conflict RPG, Mythic Games, Dog House Rulez and many smaller publishers.

So perhaps, I can be added to the list of 'celebrities', though I barely qualify.

There are some very well known D&D professionals at The Piazza. The Piazza got set up to replace a small number of forums for out of print D&D campaign settings, and rapidly expanded to support more and more smaller campaign settings (and even rules systems) that were outside of its original remit. And there are a lot of non-TSR/non-WotC forums here now. So it is great that people associated with other RPG projects have signed up here too.

With The Piazza expanding to welcome fans of any and every campaign setting, I'm pretty sure Havard has the same attitude to the people he adds onto his list. If some Kaidan fans (or fans of other things you worked on) turn up to The Piazza, I'm sure they will be delighted to see your name in his list.
