About Sean K Reynolds Games....The goal of my company is to publish quality games that help you make better choices about your gaming. They may teach you something about game design in general, the d20 System in particular, or even some part of the real world; ideally, my d20 System products should leave you understanding the rules better so you can make better choices for your game, whether in designing your own material or evaluating published books to determine if they're balanced, campaign-appropriate, or worth reading at all.
Sean K Reynolds Games was founded in October 2004 by game designer Sean K Reynolds (that's me!). I've been gamer since 1980, worked in the tabletop RPG industry since 1995, and as a professional game designer since 1998. My work includes the development of 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons and the 3E relaunches of the Greyhawk and Forgotten Realms campaign settings. I left Wizards of the Coast in 2002 and joined the computer game industry, working on fantasy and post-apocalyptic RPGs and a martial arts action game. After eighteen months working on computer games, I left that job and decided to found my own small self-publishing venture using my extensive knowledge of the inner workings of the d20 System and experience working with large and small publishers. I now work as a developer for Paizo Publishing, making their 3.5 (and now Pathfinder RPG) even more fun.
Sean K Reynolds Games is located in beautiful Seattle, Washington, near the University of Washington and the Gargoyles Statuary store. I am the sole proprietor, though I rely on contract workers for art, editing, and other aspects of the business.
So why a handprint logo? It represents getting your hands dirty doing game design. It represents leaving a mark that others can identify. It represents giving people a hand with their design questions. And I'm left-handed (yes, it's actually my handprint).
I strongly support the sharing of material through the Open Game License, and my goal is to have as much of SKRG's text as Open as possible. Furthermore, any original* Open content in SKRG books is freely available for use by any publisher according to the terms of the OGL. In other words, if you want to know if you have our permission to use SKRG's original* Open material, the answer is "yes." You don't even have to ask first, though I'd appreciate a courtesy heads-up so I can mention your book on my site.
(*This caveat is here because from time to time I may use someone else's Open material in my products and I don't want to speak for them in terms of giving automatic permission to use their Open material. Basically, I grant all publishers permission to use anything mentioned in an SKRG product's OGL Section 15 copyright notice that is copyright by Sean K Reynolds Games, no need to ask. Publishers interested in anything else listed in the product's OGL Section 15--such as that created by other publishers and used in SKRG's books according to the OGL--should address their questions to the owner of that copyright.)
