Sam is the Legends referee and designated hitter-of-computers-that-just-won't-work. In his spare time he plays board games with Ed and Clint, and online computer games such as Natural Selection. His latest band, Random Note Generator, play radio unfriendly rock. Check them out here:

Edward has either been promoted or has been given a load of work when he wasn't looking - he's not sure ;) He is now being the Main GM for most of the newer Legends games, dealing with the setups for new Legends players, and completely runs Legends when Sam is off, sick or both. He spends most evenings out with his girlfriend Michelle or doing 'something different'. Unicycle hockey (yes that's hockey played whilst riding a unicycle) and juggling seem to be the two that take most of the time at the moment, but all of the following items also figure - Capoeira, trapeze, acrobalance, dancing, eating, drinking, general carousing, gaming, riding, stilts, and playing with fire (literally and figuratively). The rest of his spare time is spent collecting bits of foreign languages and talking to new people. He also does some travelling when he gets a chance. He recently had a go in a german wheel (imagine rolling around in a giant hamster wheel - you will have the right picture) and now wants one for his birthday. And, as you may have guessed from this description he has provided, he does tend to talk more than the rest of us...

Ross Inglis is the Canadian guardian of the Legends code. Before he joined Harlequin he had some Legends success, managing to be in a winning team five times, and in another two that he foolishly dropped before his side went on to win. These days he goes paragliding when the weather is good, and plays board games when the weather is bad. His enthusiasm for games is so great he has willingly playtested new ones for Reiner Knizia on a weekly basis for the last 10 years.

Staff

Edward Lane

Edward is the main Legends GM, and is pretty sure that gremlins have been sneaking work into his in-tray when he isn’t looking, otherwise his workload really ought to fit more easily into a normal day.

When not working he plays board games, juggles, and spends the rest of his time doing stuff with his wife Michelle.


Ross Inglis

Ross Inglis is the Canadian guardian of the Legends code. Before he joined Harlequin, he had some Legends success, managing to be in a winning team five times, and in another two that he foolishly dropped before his side went on to win.

These days, he goes paragliding when the weather is good, and plays board games when the weather is bad. His enthusiasm for games is so great he has willingly playtested new ones for Reiner Knizia on a weekly basis for the last 10 years.
