Tyler Edwards is a lifelong gamer, freelance writer, and fantasy novelist living in Toronto, Canada. Here at MOP, he heads up the Not-So-Massively column. He's fascinated by the potential of video games as a story-telling medium, and quickly loses interest in most games that can't engage him on that level. He loves Elves as much as Justin hates them, and he feels about the original Secret World the way Bree feels about Star Wars Galaxies.
