Darrin Drader was born in Pullman, Washington in 1973, and eventually went to college at WSU there as well. Its no wonder that a town known for wheat fields, cows, higher education, and rampant inebriation would turn out a creative mind like Darrin's. Reading and being heavily influenced by Tolkien at an early age, he later developed a love for Dragonlance, the Belgariad, and the many books by R.A. Salvatore. Darrin was introduced to Dungeons & Dragons at the age of 11, and he's been a gamer ever since.
Darrin lives in Western Washington, and among other things, has sold computers and managed a retail store. Darrin was an employee of Wizards of the Coast and he currently lives outside of Tacoma, Washington with his wife, daughters, and several pets. He has a love of '90s "grunge" rock, techno, anything U2, Babylon 5, and That '70s Show. He has done design work for Asgard Online Magazine, D20 Weekly Online Magazine, Dragon, Star Wars Gamer, Dark Portal Games, Wizards of the Coast, and Bastion Press. He has also gone on to be a regular contributor to the Oathbound Campaign setting.
