I wanted to play in Dark Sun simply because of his art. I never really go to, but I still love the whole look and feel. I got to meet Brom at Comic Con in 1996. Very cool guy.
He was cool?God, I'm so glad to hear that. I've been a fan of his stuff since the early 90s and I've always wondered if he would be a cool guy or a prick. I'm so glad he's righteous and not prickish.
It's actually a funny story. He was sitting at a table with Terry Brooks and Bob Salvatore, giving autographs. I was in line, waiting to have stuff signed by all three of them. I noticed that no one was asking Brom to sign anything, being so focused on Terry and Bob. And before I could get to the front of the line, Brom got tired of being ignored (and who wouldn't?), so he left. I was totally bummed! Then, about an hour later I saw him walking down one of the main thoroughfares, and I stopped him and asked him to sign my sketchbook. His face lit up and he doodled a little drawing of a severed head with his autograph. I was jazzed for the rest of the day. And I think it made his day too. :)
I like Brooks and Salvatore but Brom would have been the man I would want in my sketch book. By the way, I am so covetous of that drawing he did for you. That's something really cool.
