Interview Questions

So, you’d like to be interviewed for Stormscroll? That’s GREAT and so easy to do! Simply ‘cut and paste’ the questions below (they’re standardised for continuity) and email them back to the Chronicler (stormscroll at gmail dot com with the subject: Stormscroll Interview), then sit back and wait. Don’t worry, you’ll be notified which edition your interview will be in!

There are 20 questions, please complete all of them, but you don’t need to write a novel for each answer, if you have a device it will be included with your interview, so please do include your registered name when completing the questions, not just how you may be known to everyone, ie: Robert the Bruce, not just  Bob.

If you’re interested in contributing for the martial section (heavy, rapier or archery), the questions are listed below as well.
