Jason Durall is Chaosium's creative director for RuneQuest and Basic Roleplaying (BRP). A native of the Pacific Northwest, he has been playing and writing games for more than 35 years.
After the obligatory first exposure to D&D, he almost immediately switched to Chaosium's line of games. His first professional work was for Chaosium, with contributions to Elric!, Dragon Lords of Melnibone, the "Big Gold Book" for Basic Roleplaying, and some writing and consultancy on Magic World.
In addition to that, he's worked for a variety of other publishers ranging from Phage Press, Mongoose, White Wolf, Decipher, Guardians of Order, Margaret Weiss Productions, Cubicle 7, Rite Publishing, and Modiphius.
In the online game field, Jason was the lead worldbuilder for Shadowbane, creative lead for Wizard101 and Pirate101, and wrote and did system and content design on several unannounced/cancelled games. Most recently, he was the lead designer on Drakensang Online.
He lives in Berlin, enjoys travel and food, and misses Texas barbeque and good Mexican food.
