Sean Patrick Fannon

┬áSean Patrick Fannon (aka “Big Irish” or SPF) – Brand Manager and Lead Writer/Designer for the Savage Rifts product line for Pinnacle Entertainment – has been professionally involved in tabletop RPGs, computer games, and entertainment for over thirty years. His dozens of projects have included Hero Games’ Champions product line; both West End’s and Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars RPGs; various World of Darkness books; and the Savage Worlds Epic High Fantasy setting, Shaintar.
He was the Events Coordinator for GAMA (helping run both Origins and GTS), and chronicled the entire roleplaying game hobby and industry in The Fantasy Roleplaying Gamer’s Bible, which sold over 10,000 copies. He worked for DriveThruRPG & RPGNow as the Marketing and Communications Director; during that period, he helped coordinate massive charity and relief efforts for folks like Doctors Without Borders and Feeding America, leveraging the RPG community’s generosity. He continues that tradition as a member of the Board of Directors for the RPG Creators Relief Fund.
Sean now focuses on his own gaming company, Evil Beagle Games (“Bad Dog. Good Games”), as well as his work for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. He’s working directly with Pinnacle and Palladium Books to create an entire line of books to bring the classic Rifts setting to Savage Worlds fans, which he says is his most challenging design project ever. He’s also working with Len Pimentel of Lakeside Games on a new version of the Prowlers & Paragons superhero game system, and has two settings – Modern Gods and Unending War – planned for later release for P&P. Working with Spyglass Games, he’s bringing out a new setting next year called Freedom Squadron, which is described as a “love letter to G.I. Joe” and is based on Spyglass’ VENOM Assault Board Game.
