Encyclopedia > Rich Burlew

Rich first broke into game writing with Wizards of the Coast's Fantasy Setting Search in late 2002, where he was one of only three finalists asked to prepare a full 125-page bible for their setting. Ultimately, he was defeated by his archnemesis, Keith Baker, for whom his fiery wrath still burns like the heat of a thousand suns. Rich has since gone on to contribute to Wizards' Monster Manual III and Paizo's Dragon Magazine, as well as working on top secret projects that, were you to learn of them, would almost certainly spell your doom.


In the summer of 2003, Rich founded www.GiantITP.com as a thinly-veiled means of promoting himself as a game designer. It met with middling success until he invented his now-signature webcomic, The Order of the Stick. Since then, the site has been growing by leaps and bounds, leading Rich to believe he is destined to crush the world political order with an unstoppable army of zombie webcomic readers.


While it shocks anyone who sees the Order of the Stick before they meet him, Rich actually attended design school and has a degree in Illustration and Graphic Design. He has absolutely no formal training as an author, however, which only leads to periodic panic attacks when he realizes he has committed to produce a few thousand words within a short span of time. In addition to his obvious interests in gaming and comics, Rich watches Iron Chef religiously and has a DVD collection that is on the verge of achieving sentience. Tragically, he lives in Queens, NY.
