Stewart Wieck (1968-2017) was a game designer and author of short stories, novels and screenplays. His work was most closely associated with White Wolf Publishing, a company he founded while in high school to publish a magazine dedicated to pen and paper roleplaying games such as Dungeons & Dragons. His work at White Wolf was highlighted by the co-creation of the World of Darkness, a fictional world that grew from such roleplaying games as Vampire: The Masquerade and Mage: The Ascension. The host of talented individuals at White Wolf revolutionized roleplaying games with a conviction that games can be art.
After White Wolf merged with CCP Games in 2006, Stewart remained involved in the new company, but after three years the entrepreneurial itch got the better of him. Nocturnal Media was the publisher for his future projects, which included an animated adaptation of his screenplay “The Thresher’s Flail” and Relentless: Darkling Plain, a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena). Stewart also remained dedicated to his roots in paper roleplaying, as evidenced by support for the classic King Arthur Pendragon.
