My name is Becky and I’m the new Admin Assistant for Pelgrane Press. I’m relatively new to the world of RPGs, having been a board gamer for about 10 years now (favourites include A Feast for Odin, Food Chain Magnate & Great Western Trail) but RPGs are a big part of my life as my partner’s house is partially held up by his collection! I am often at UK RPG conventions, so some of you may have already met me. At the moment I’m busy helping CJ organise the Grand Tribunal convention, and this week we have role players flying in from all over the world.
By background I’m a Parapsychologist; if you haven’t come across that term before it’s the psychology of the paranormal, and my personal specialism is researching ghosts and poltergeists. I’m working on a book containing the results of my PhD looking at ghost experiences and I’m also the Treasurer of ASSAP (Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena).
I was a dancer for around 20 years in Modern and Latin American and I now work as a Supporting Artist in music videos, TV and film. You might have seen me (without realising of course) in music videos for Ed Sheeran and Rixton, in British TV shows Call the Midwife and No Offence and in the films The Theory of Everything and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I also enjoy making things with fabric, most notably puppets used in a Freeform at Consequences.
Gaming wise I have met the Elder Things and Giant Albino Penguins in Antarctica, played Vivian Sinclair in Cthulhu Confidential and have a Dwarf PC in 13th Age whose one unique thing is that he is a World Famous Ballroom Dancer! We are about to embark on The Persephone Extraction for Night’s Black Agents.
Look forward to meeting you all at future conventions!
