Aberdeen, WA
Freelance writer; previously editorial intern (Paizo Inc.)

Hank Woon began freelancing in 2003 with an adventure in Dungeon #97 by Paizo Publishing. In 2004, he joined RedBrick LLC's development team as writer, editor, and developer for Earthdawn Classic (and offered his editing services for a few Fading Suns 2nd edition projects as well). In 2008, his first novel, Dark Shadows of Yesterday, was published by RedBrick LLC.

Later that year, Hank moved to Renton, WA and in early 2009 joined RedBrick's development teams for Earthdawn 3rd Edition as well as Age of Legend 4E, and was also hired onto the Paizo staff as an enthusiastic editorial intern. He has written several adventures, articles, and sourcebooks for the Earthdawn, Age of Legend, and Pathfinder game lines, including writing contributions to the Pathfinder Core Rulebook.

In August 2009, Hank's tenure as an editorial intern with Paizo ended, though he continues to contribute to Pathfinder by freelancing for Paizo, as well as other third-party publishers who support the game. (Hank also left his permanent mark with the Pathfinder Society, as his handwriting is immortalized as the signature of Muhlia al'Jakri at the back of every adventure in the faction handouts, and also statted Paizo's mascot, the Golem.) In addition, he joined RedBrick's Equinox gameline as a developer and writer the same month.

In September 2009, his second Earthdawn novel, Immortal Twilight, was published by RedBrick LLC. The same month, Adamant Entertainment debuted its Pathfinder-compatible monster series, Fell Beasts, of which Hank is one of the authors. They also announced Warpath, a game supplement designed by Hank featuring rules for mass combat for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game system, released in May 2010.

In July 2010, Chronicles: Pathfinder Podcast featured an interview with Hank, discussing his work on Warpath, and two of his other Pathfinder works, Sniper in the Deep and Terror at Whistledown.1
