I like to think so. I've been an active DM since I was 10-years old and I do have a list of professional design credits in the RPG industry. I've worked for Fantasy Flight Games, Bastion Press, EN Publishing, Kenzer & Co, White Wolf Publishing, and a handful of others. I stepped back from freelance design towards the end of the 3.5/OGL rush but I am always working on things for my own games. My short list of credits includes:
Traps and Treachery 1 & 2, Mythic Races, Seafarer's Handbook, The Path Series (Path of Magic, etc), The Weeping Tree, Arms and Armor, and Sorcery and Stream.
I also have the benefit of being surrounded by amazing folks who are honest, talented, and willing to lend me an ear. More than my eyes will have a look at the Alpha rules and it is my hope that the Beta/Playtest packet that hits your hands will be polished and absolutely ready to go through the paces.
