For more than 15 years, Will Kenyon has been a freelance writer and editor operating out of New York City and Atlanta. He’s managed to publish a number of poems and a handful of short stories over the years, and has worked for such high profile clientele as Smithsonian, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, Cisco Systems, and Conde Nast.
Will rolled his first 20-sided die in the early 80s, and has been an avid gamer ever since, his greatest love being board games. Over the years, he dabbled in game creation and design, working as a writer for the now defunct Iron Crown Enterprises and as a playtester and product champion for I.C.E. as well as Decipher’s Star Wars and Lord of The Rings CCGs. Around two years ago, he turned his attention to the arduous task of designing games himself.
In March 2015, 8th Summit Games approached him to take over the writing, design, and development of two of their most promising future projects: Mythos Tales and The Little Adventurers’ Club. Mythos Tales is a role-playing deduction game modeled on the 80s best-seller Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, but based in the incredible, dark world imagined by H.P. Lovecraft. The Little Adventurers’ Club is a story-telling board game for children aged 5-10.
Both titles are slated to be published in early to mid 2016. Mythos Tales had a successful Kickstarter campaign during February 2016.
