Zeb Cook’s RPG design history includes such important highlights as the “Expert” portion of B/X D&D, AD&D 2nd Edition, Oriental Adventures, Planescape, Star Frontiers, and more! He’s also had career highlights in video games including City of Villains, Fallout 2, and The Elder Scrolls Online. Did you know AD&D 2nd Edition had a significant playtest effort (and why wasn’t the armor class system changed then)? Whose idea was it to have the first wilderness adventure, why were there dinosaurs in The Isle of Dread, and why was it set on an island? Crashing on Gary Gygax’s couch. What strange business venture did TSR make that had Zeb in stitches?
