Alias(es)

James Jacobs is an American designer and author of roleplaying games and texts in the fantasy, horror, and occult genres. In the 2000s he has served as the editor-in-chief of Dungeon magazine, published by Paizo Publishing.

Jacobs has been involved in the roleplaying industry since the age of fourteen, when his adventure "Scepter of the Underworld" was published in Dungeon in 1988. He moved to Seattle after graduating from college and wormed his way into Wizards of the Coast's sales department. Since then, he has authored and co-authored several other products for the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, including the Dungeon Master's Guide II, Lords of Madness, and Red Hand of Doom. He also co-wrote Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss with fellow Paizo editor Erik Mona.

Jacobs has overseen Pathfinder, the Adventure Path-focused monthly publication from Paizo, since its launch in August 2007. He has written "Burnt Offerings," the adventure featured in Pathfinder's first issue.

Among Jacobs's other writings is the popular "Demonomicon of Iggwilv" feature in Dragon magazine, and he has contributed a number of adventure stories for Dungeon. Jacobs has also created many notable Dungeons & Dragons creatures, with the ulitharid, draknor, and the kaorti among the most prominent.
