John Wick is a lot of things – creator, designer, world builder and RPG pioneer.  Some of his work includes Legends of the Five Rings, Orkworld, Houses of the Blooded and many, many more.

John was kind enough to answer a good number of questions posed by the crew at Reddit’s /r/rpg community (which is well worth stopping by) and by me.   So let’s get to it!  Here’s the four part interview with John Wick!

A big thanks to John Wick for taking time out of his very busy schedule to provide some very interesting answers!

Be sure to check out John’s Houses of the Blooded, and of course for some zombie fun the Shotgun Diaries.    Here’s more on John:

John Wick is a 20th and 21st century role-playing game designer best known for his creative contributions to the Alderac Entertainment Group properties Legend of the Five Rings and 7th Sea. He self-published Orkworld under the Wicked Press banner, and later co-founded the Wicked Dead Brewing Company with Jared Sorensen. His games under that company include Cat, Schauermärchen, Enemy Gods, and Thirty. He has won the Origins Award for Best Role-Playing Game and Best Collectible Card Game twice (for both the Legend of the Five Rings and 7th Sea role-playing games and collectible card games).

He has also written for White Wolf, Inc., Pinnacle Entertaiment Group, and worked for various video game companies, providing storyline and dialogue. He has written two regular on-line columns: The Game Designer’s Journal (for The Gaming Outpost) and Play Dirty (for Pyramid Magazine).

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
