Moran is the author of the Weapons of the Gods RPG, published in 2005 - years after it was announced - as the first in-house RPG from Eos Press. Moran is also the author of the indie role-playing games Nobilis, The Game of Powers (the LARP version of Nobilis), and Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine. She has also contributed as an author to several source books for Exalted and other works.
Moran legally changed her name. Rebecca Sean Borgstrom was, she says, her legal name, but she did not consider it her "real" name. She is also credited as R. Sean Borgstrom, Rebecca Borgstrom, and Sean Borgstrom. In contexts where she is well known, such as mailing lists centered on games she has authored, she is often referred to simply as "RSB."
Moran writes Hitherby Dragons, a blog-style ongoing story or collection of stories. She posts a new entry Monday through Saturday. The collection consists of legends and histories. Legends are performances put on by a girl named Jane, her brother Martin, and other recurring actors. Histories are actual events in Jane's world.
Moran, under the name Rebecca Borgstrom, appears as a player character in the scenario "And I Feel Fine," by Geoffrey C. Grabowski, which was published in the One Shots sourcebook for Unknown Armies. This fictional version of Borgstrom lives in a trailer and is described as "a single mom making her good way in a bad world." Another role-playing game author, Rich Dansky, also appears as a player character in the same scenario.
