Mark Burlet is the shortest member of the Uplink Underground, but probably the tallest in pure, metaphysical stature. New Orleans is home, but he is an unapologetic traveler. His love of gaming began in the early 80’s with Basic Dungeons & Dragons, and has followed him throughout life, shaping him and his friendships (notably with his fellow members of the Underground). Game design has intrigued him since his initial forays into creating computer games on his old Apple IIe back in 6th grade. Now, while he still loves a good RPG from time-to-time, the board game has moved to the top of the list of regular pastimes. Faves include: Battlestar Galactica by Fantasy Flight Games, Axis & Allies by Milton Bradley, and The Red Dragon Inn by Slugfest Games.
