I'm James Wyatt. You might know me as the author of several novels and many more Dungeons & Dragons products published over the last 15 years or so, and more recently as the author of some Magic: The Gathering art books and short fiction.

This site is a sort of directory to my presence all over the internet. Here's where you can find out more about me:

My blog (blog.aquela.com): I rarely use this, in this age of tweets and micro-blogging, but I occasionally post bits of writing there.

My author site (jameswyatt.aquela.com): Currently focused on the Draconic Prophecies, my trilogy set in the world of Eberron, but I’m in the process of expanding it to more of a professional site. You’ll find a complete list of my published writing there, for example.

Twitter (@aquelajames): I tweet almost entirely about D&D or Magic stuff, and usually while I'm actually playing D&D or Magic.

Facebook: I accept friend requests from fans (unless the request comes from someone who is obviously not real or obviously not using a real name). However, unless you know me personally, you'll get the exact same results from following me on Facebook or on Twitter. 

The Draconic Prophecies trilogy also has a page on Facebook, but I don't post there any more.

Tumblr (characterconcepts.aquela.com): I started off using Tumblr as a place to store ideas for characters I might play some day, which might be interesting to you if you're a D&D player. I sometimes blog or reblog Magic-related stuff there now too.

My roleplaying site (roleplaying.aquela.com): This is information about the major campaigns I am running or have run in the past. You’ll also find a central repository of links to the Magic art books and Plane Shift (Magic/D&D crossover) articles.

My church’s sermon archive (on SoundCloud): I’m a semi-regular preacher at St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in Kent, Washington. You’ll find several of my sermons if you look for my picture as you scroll down the page.

Don't know who I am?

What's Aquela?
Aquela is the name of the world I created as a setting for my D&D games when I was a teenager. I keep going back to it, reinventing it, in many more campaigns, and the name has become my online tag, as it were.

Why am I wearing a tuxedo in that picture?
I sing with the Illumni Men's Chorale, a fantastic group of singers that performs several times a year around the Seattle area. (In 2007, we appeared for about 20 seconds on a nationally televised talent show!) And it so happens that much better photographers take pictures of Illumni than those who take pictures of me anywhere else. Or else I just look better in a tux than I look anywhere else. As I'm fond of saying, when you walk into a room wearing a tux, suddenly everyone else is under-dressed.
