Jamie Chambers

Archived Bio. Not part of the current Guest list.

Jamie Chambers was born in Atlanta and grew up running around barefoot in the pine forests and kudzu fields of north Georgia. The son of a Trekkie and an early D&D player, Jamie was doomed early to a life of geeky pursuits. He began playing role-playing games at the age of seven and writing his own fiction at eight.

He spent his youth reading fantasy and science fiction, flipping through comics, watching cartoons, and playing any game he could get his hands on video games, board games, card games, and especially role playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons. Eventually he became an online volunteer for TSR, Inc. while the Internet was in its infancy and became involved with the RPGA (Role Playing Game Association) as a club president and convention coordinator. He went onto create best-selling and award-winning tie-ins to fantasy novels and popular entertainment, creating the Cortex System RPG rules and working on settings including Dragonlance, Serenity, Battlestar Galactica, and Supernatural.

After a lifetime of creating (and playing) games as well as writing (and reading) stories, Jamie launched Signal Fire Studios to create game and entertainment products. He’s had stories, game products, and articles published by many companies and is pursuing creative writing projects for publication having recently published the newest incarnation of the Metamorphosis Alpha Roleplaying Game. Jamie served as Vice President on the board of directors for GAMA (Game Manufacturers Association) for nearly a decade before recently stepping down.

Jamie lives in north Georgia with a beautiful woman and a blended family filled with wonderfully geeky children.
