Wieses love of gaming started in the Boy Scouts, where youd
think there was enough to do to keep one from playing roleplaying games.
Through college he has played in some great home campaigns, and he discovered

for six and a half years, filling almost every job duty that exists on
the staff at one time or another. Now he plans conventions for the RPGA,
stays active in his local Living Greyhawk region, and writes gaming
goodies from time to time. He also gardens a lot and devotes as much time
as possible to his beloved wife.
