Jeffrey Talanian, designer for North Wind Adventures, started playing Dungeons & Dragons in 1981, and he’s been running heroic campaigns ever since. From 2005 to 2008, Jeff had the opportunity to develop several Castle Zagyg projects under the guidance of his friend and mentor, E. Gary Gygax (R.I.P.). These days, Jeff’s focus is on the RPG he authored, the ENnie-nominated Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea. He’s written several critically acclaimed adventures for AS&SH, including “Charnel Crypt of the Sightless Serpent,” “Taken from Dunwich,” “Rats in the Walls,” “Ghost Ship of the Desert Dunes,” and “The Mystery at Port Greely.”  Jeff has also contributed to several magazines, including AFS, Fight On!, Gygax Magazine, and Knockspell.
