Nope, it is a ship I designed for a game called "Traveller".  It is a role playing game set in the far future.  I have done a lot of work for Mongoose Publishing and a few other publishing houses.  Plus, I have a few books out myself.

Has anyone ever stopped by the office on a pilgrimage to pay homage to you guys?
If they haven't yet, they should.  If any arrive in the future... one will probably be me and I'll bring cookies! :)

I love the "Reasonable personal hygiene." requirement listed on the website by the way. Nice add and probably not joking  :lol:

Me and my boyfriend decided last night that we want to take a trip to the office and see what the awesomeness is like.  We're less than a half hour away and just found out maybe within the past two weeks that the office is in akron.

Yay, ohio! We're actually good for something!

Able to beat us in Mario Kart on the office Wii.

Damn!  I passed on the other requirements but suck at Wii games  :P

I would totally pwn Blue Frog at Mario Cart!

Otherwise, I am 20 galaxies away and only know RonR from sfc server messages. (am a fine brainstormer however) :) Good luck.

Come on guys, you have to give credit to BFG because Akron is a great place to live.

(Should I note an exception: "unless you've lived in other places" applies to this?)

All kidding aside, best of luck finding the right guys and while telecommuting would be great for many, it lacks that brainstorming session quality you can ony get in person.  You can't have Group Think without the Group.

Wow, that was constructive.

If you have beef, explain why. Constructively. I have issues with BFG, but I explain why.

Posts like this are just mental masturbation.
