75: Bruce Nesmith

March 22, 2022

Lead Rules Design on Gamma World 4e, Lead Writer for the 2e Ravenloft box set, plus worked on Fallout 3,4, & 76, a number of the Elder Scrolls games, including Lead Designer for Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.

Usually I have some clever title or something, but this week, I think the above says enough!  Any one of those credits are significant, but the whole list, plus more??!!??

We have a chat with game designer (now turned author) Bruce Nesmith about the twists and turns that a career in game design has brought him.  From starting at TSR straight out of college, on through working at Bethesda Softworks, and now, to writing novels. 

Bruce even shares the wild story of how he initially got recruited into the gaming industry! 


Here's Bruce's current novel "Mischief Maker" on Amazon -- https://www.amazon.com/Mischief-Maker-Norse-Mythology-Reimagined/dp/195306213X/ref=sr_1_1
