LYNNE HARDY discovered roleplaying games at university thanks to – of all things – American football. A few years later, a cheeky letter to Wizards of the Coast got her into the gaming industry and there she’s stayed, on and off, for the few decades. Over that time, she’s worked for Nightfall Games, Pelgrane Press, Cubicle Seven, Modiphius, and Green Ronin, amongst numerous others, either as a writer, editor, or both. She also created her own steampunk pulp adventure game: Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks. 


More recently, she formed part of the team responsible for updating Chaosium’s legendary Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign, and her modern-day Call of Cthulhu scenario, Scritch Scratch, was Chaosium’s 2018 contribution to Free RPG Day. She now works full-time for the Chaosium as Associate Editor for the Call of Cthulhu RPG and Line Editor for the upcoming Rivers of London RPG. When not beavering away at the day job, she gives talks and workshops on traditional hand embroidery techniques.
