Merric Blackman is an Australian player of role-playing games and boardgames, who tends to write one or three words on the subject. He’s a fan of big fantasy epics (Wheel of Time and the Malazan Book of the Fallen) and Doctor Who. Especially Doctor Who. He’s happy that there’s a good Doctor Who RPG, though he hasn’t been able to run a game of it yet, but less pleased that there isn’t a good Doctor Who boardgame.
He began playing D&D in the early 1980s, and has played every edition of the game. Mostly as a Dungeon Master, because that’s what he enjoys doing. In 2000, he started getting heavily into board games, and now has a collection of over 500 of them. His typical week involves 4-8 hours of playing board games and 6-10 hours of playing role-playing games. He then writes about them!
Merric helped edit Fifth Edition Foes and Quests of Doom from Necromancer Games, as well as doing most of the conversion work on The Book of Lost Spells.
At present he serves as the D&D Adventurers League Local Co-ordinator for Victoria. The Australian Victoria.
