Alias(es)

David Howery was a Greyhawk author who specialized in adventures and settings based on the non-European cultures of Earth and bringing them to Oerth. "Ghazal," in Dungeon #30, added a group inspired by North African people and set them in the Bright Desert. "Ghost Dance," in Dungeon #32, presented a vision of the Rovers of the Barrens based very closely on North American Plains Indians. In Dragon #189, he detailed a fantasy version of Africa that was southern Hepmonaland in his own campaign; the fantasy version of ancient America that he presented in Dragon #205 was set across the Solnor Ocean in his own home game. He even wrote an article on a fantasy Atlantis, which he called Atalya. He suggested vaguely that Atalya might be placed in the Solnor.

His adventures "The Elephants' Graveyard" and "The Leopard Men" were based on scenarios in his original Greyhawk campaign, while "Rogue" and "The Land of Men With Tails" were set in the same fantasy Africa.

He has a B.S. degree in range management from Montana State University.
