I graduated from the University of Rochester with a BS in Chemical Engineering, but instead of the ability to calculate the forces in involved with laminar flow I developed a critical analysis of video games, science, and technology. These skills were cultivated as I worked as the presentation editor of the Campus Times school newspaper, creating cartoons for the newspaper and working with page layout. I am also a amateur photographer, writer, and cartoonist, using my love of gaming and science as inspiration. If I can make someone smile and tell them why Borderlands is a terrible game, then I feel like I’ve accomplished something important.
This NPC was coded with two things in mind: geekery and doing typical NPC tasks. Equipped with a master’s degree in Library and Information Science, a bachelor’s degree in English, and a year’s worth of experience in Japan, he’s here to bring you random blurbs about gaming, conventions, and blacksmithing.
Outside of setting up shop at a library in West Virginia, you can find the NPC at various RPG tables (often behind a GM screen) and scattered conventions including Tekko, Sangawa, CharCon, and possibly more events as he tries not to burn himself (and be forced to respawn!) while making things out of metal.
From the primordial fields of the ARK to the battlefields of Valoran, Zatheera is known for her ability to support those in need, be they dinosaur or marksman. Her power over word weaving and organization was said to have been taught to her by the elves and dwarves of Thedas, and it is this qualities that makes her a valuable member of the Sticky Bunton team. That and her evil laugh keeps us all in line.
When not writing or organizing, Zatheera tames and cares for a variety of digital and physical animals, and is a coffee addict. There’s not a day that she doesn’t have a cute critter or cup of joe nearby.
