Recently I was fortunate enough to visiting an old friend in Port Blacksand. Occasionally even I the great Warlock feel the need to quench my thirst, and I stopped off in the Black Lobster Tavern for a jug of Tuktuk juice. I had just paid for my drink, when I suddenly saw the infamous bards Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson seated in the corner. Without a second thought I glided over their corner at the back of the Tavern for a chat!

Steve: I am bllrgh frrrp proom A-HEM! [Wipes hand over mouth and coughs] years old. I was born in Manchester and now live in West London. In my early years I Went to Altrincham Grammar School for Boys Later the University of Keele (where I had the dubious distinction of founding the first ever board games club at a British university). I am married with two teenage boys and collect games, tin robots and gold disks by my favourite guitarists. I work at various times from home, from my private office and from Lionhead Studios in Guildford. I like skiing, tennis and golf. Ian and I used to run a softball team, which won the National Softball Championships (twice) but sadly, our baseballing days are now over. I support Chelski and go to every home game. Play guitar in an amateur blues/rock band that does a performance about once a year. Favourite board game is 'The Warlord'. Favourite computer game is Age of Empires.
