Scott Jennings has been playing roleplaying games since 1976, when at the age of ten, during a game that had just come out called Dungeons & Dragons, he lost his first character, a 1st-level wizard, to a demon lord. He’s been complaining about poor game balance ever since.
More recently, he has been involved in the massively multiplayer gaming world in various capacities. In 1999, he posted tales of his various frustrations and amusements with Ultima Online on a Web site, which he named the Rantings of Lum the Mad after his character. Over the next three years, as the number of people who played MMGs grew, the combination of humor and commentary on Scott’s Web site proved popular, both with the players and the creators of these games.
Meanwhile, Scott’s day job as a database programmer disappeared during the dot-com crash of 2001, luckily right at the time when a new massively multiplayer game, Mythic Entertainment’s Dark Age of Camelot, needed a database programmer. It didn’t take much convincing for him to move across the country and work on hit dice and monster aggro for a living.
Four years and six expansions later, he’s still working behind the scenes of Camelot’s round table. He can’t think of a more fulfilling career than to tinker at the machinery that makes worlds tick.
