Subject: Re: North Texas RPG Con

Dear Doug,

Thank you for your kind invitation; I have heard many great things about your con...

... I would be delighted to attend! While I have been out of the roleplaying game biz for awhile, I was very active during the 80s and 90s, and that would seem to fit the time frame of your focus...

... Again, thanks for the invite! I look forward to hearing from you and firming up details.

all the best, Doug Niles

Niles had been working on a trilogy of Celtic-themed novels for TSR, which were modified in the late 80's to become the first Forgotten Realms books, beginning with Darkwalker on Moonshae (1987). Niles went on to write numerous novels, mainly for the Dragonlance series. Niles is one of the most prolific Dragonlance authors, including: The Icewall Trilogy (The Messenger, The Golden Orb, Winterheim), Emperor of Ansalon, The Dragons, The Puppet King, Fistandantilus Reborn, Flint the King (with Mary Kirchoff), and The Last Thane. He has won both the H.G. Wells award and the Origins award for his work in developing adventure games. Since 1990, Niles has been a full-time author.
