OWEN K.C. STEPHENS — Pathfinder RPG Development Manager
Owen Kirker Clifford Stephens was born in 1970 in Norman, Oklahoma. He was introduced to gaming by his uncle in 1979 (though his uncle now claims no memory of the event) and was instantly hooked. While attending the local high school and the University of Oklahoma, Owen became interested in creating novels and short stories and took every English and writing course he could.
Unsure how to break into writing, Owen was encouraged by his wife Lj to try to publish notes for his many house rules, campaign adventures and custom classes and organizations. His first efforts were accepted by magazines and publishers that went bust before his work could be published. In 1997 he attended a TSR Writer’s Workshop and shortly after had his first professional work published, an article on elven names in issue 251 of Dragon Magazine. More articles followed in both
Dragon and Pyramid magazine, and Owen began to see a potential career. Owen moved to the Seattle area in 2000 after accepting a job as a Game Designer at Wizards of the Coast. While there, he worked on numerous Star Wars Roleplaying Game and other RPG projects. Fourteen months later, he returned to Oklahoma and picked up his freelance career with considerably greater skill and more contacts. He has written freelance for numerous companies, including Paizo, Green Ronin, White Wolf and Steve Jackson Games. His major credits include being co-author of the Saga Edition Star Wars Roleplaying Game, work on the Wheel of Time Roleplaying Game, The Black Company Campaign Setting, the Thieves’ World Roleplaying Game, numerous EverQuest RPG and D20 Modern books and authoriship of The Guide to Absalom and the Advanced Gamemaster’s Guide.
Owen now works out of an overcrowded office stuffed with books, maps, figures, an AT-AT, Great Cthulhu, a Wii, and up to three cats. He continues to freelance for major companies, in-between developing Pathfinder RPG compatible projects for Super Genius Games. Owen loves talking to and hearing from other gamers.
