Michael Curtis is a role-playing game designer and writer.

Career[edit]

Curtis' best-selling game book “The Dungeon Alphabet” won the Three Castles Award in 2011,[1] as well as entering a third printing with an expanded edition. Also known for his self-published mega-dungeon setting Stonehell Dungeon: Down Night-Haunted Halls (2009) and Stonehell Dungeon: Into the Heart of Hell (2014), Curtis’ adventure writing style is greatly influenced by both the Old School Renaissance movement and his admitted love of the so-called “Appendix N” authors listed by Gary Gygax on page 224 of the 1st edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Masters Guide - particularly the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard.[2]
