Heroes of RPGs: Sandy Petersen
It's been quite a while since we did one of these, but welcome back to heroes of RPG's, a series not about the heroes you play in the game, but the amazing people who created the games we play, and this time we'd like to speak about Sandy Petersen.
Carl Sanford Joslyn Petersen better known as Sandy was born in St. Louis, Missouri on the 16th September 1955 and is an American game designer.
He is a well-known fan of H. P. Lovecraft, whose work he first encountered in a World War II Armed Services Edition of The Dunwich Horror and other Weird Tales found in his father's library. In 1974, Dungeons & Dragons brought his interest to role-playing games.
