Chris Avellone is a noted game writer, with credits on many of the most famous and beloved computer RPGs since the mid-1990s. He is senior narrative designer on Pathfinder: Kingmaker from Owlcat Games, and will be writing a Pathfinder RPG module as a Kickstarter backer reward.


Avellone started his career by freelancing for a number of pen-and-paper roleplaying game companies in high school. He worked on most if not all of Black Isle's internally developed projects, including Planescape: Torment, Fallout 2, the Icewind Dale series, Dark Alliance, Knights of the Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights 2, Mask of the Betrayer, Alpha Protocol, Fallout: New Vegas + DLC: Dead Money, Old World Blues, Lonesome Road, and South Park. His more recent work includes Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity, FTL: Advanced Edition, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and Prey. He is currently working on Divinity: Original Sin II by Larian Studios, Into the Breach with Subset Games (the makers of FTL), and was part of the successful Kickstarter reboot of System Shock with Night Dive Studios and lead designer on Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition with Beamdog. He was a founding member of Obsidian Entertainment, but now works primarily as a freelancer.
