Meet the Team: Bill Roper

Meet the Team: Bill Roper - Champions Online - MMORPG.com

Cryptic Studios has posted a profile of Champions Online Executive Producer Bill Roper.

Q: What do you do on Champions Online?
A: I’m coming into the team to act as Executive Producer, which means I’ll be holding the vision for the project. The immense responsibilities of production remain in the hands of Chris Lena and his team, allowing me to throw some additional muscle into the design process. I’ve literally played Champions since before it was published, having been invited into the back room of a game store to help playtest a new superhero RPG many years ago. I whipped up a claws character (killing attack FTW) and basically got my first taste of a super-powered brawl. I was instantly hooked, so the chance to come in and help bring the Champions Universe to a new generation of gamers is incredibly exciting.

Q: How long have you worked in gaming, and what did you do before Champions Online?
A: I’ve been in the industry for just over 14 years. I started by doing voice-over and music on Blackthorne for Blizzard Entertainment and then moved onto Warcraft: Orcs & Humans to create the world fiction, write the missions, put together the manual and basically everything and anything else they asked of me. Over the next 9 years I worked on the Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo franchises and did everything from design to production to working with outside developers and leading internal strike teams to press, marketing and eventually becoming a vice president.
