Some news from the warrens! Starting today, I have the privilege of stepping into the role of Editorial Director for Kobold Press. I absolutely cannot wait to get started working with all of my fellow minions to bring the best and scaliest gaming material to your tables!
For those of you meeting me for the first time, hello! My name is Amanda, and I’m an ENnie Award–winning tabletop game writer, designer, developer, and editor. For the past five years, I’ve held a variety of roles at Paizo, publisher of the Pathfinder and Starfinder RPGs. Most recently, I co-created and was Managing Developer for the Starfinder RPG and its lines of gaming books and products.
Some of you, however, might remember that I’ve had Kobold blood running through my veins since the very dawn of my career in tabletop RPGs. Back in 2013, my first editing and development project hit the world in Midgard Legends. Shortly after, I worked as development and editing lead on Deep Magic for Pathfinder and then on Southlands, each Kobold’s earliest hardcover volumes. My career wouldn’t be what it is without those early experiences in the warrens nor without Wolfgang and the fine folks I’ve met through Kobold Press.
Now, as Editorial Director, I’ll be leading the charge on Kobold Press’s publishing operations, including helping shepherd our Kickstarter projects and the monthly Warlock Lairs offerings, plus looking ahead to the future schedule. Soon I’ll also be running a 5E actual-play stream set in Midgard!
I’m beyond delighted to start this new role—and to come home to the warrens.
It’s good to be back!

I’m so happy for you, Amanda! I’ll greatly miss working with you and I know you’re going to kick ass at Kobold.

Great news for KP!
Congratulations! Good to see you back.
Comment Hellknight Hill is awesome! Kobold is lucky to have you. Wolfgang is a great guy. You are lucky to work for him. This seems like an awesome career move. Paizo and Kobold are my two favorite gaming companies.
I hope this means you get an editorial pass on ToB2. So excited for that book.
Daww, thank you everyone for the warm welcome!! You’re all awesome, and I can’t wait to get started making cool koboldy stuff for you! :D
Welcome Amanda! I look forward to seeing your work and the play-stream.
More Kobolds can only be a good thing! I look forward to your new work.
Welcome home! Also, looking forward to working with you!
