Are you following the QA5 series of mini interviews with the UO Developers and Event Moderators on Stratics? Today the questions and answers with Michael “Phoenix” Moore were published.

For those of us who don’t know, what has your “career track” been with the gaming industry?

I am what is known as a game systems designer. That means I am primarily concerned with game mechanics and not game content. I don’t normally write quests or populate dungeons with monsters or lay out game maps. I occasionally do those things, but mostly I work with things like combat balance, monster AI, monster and player abilities, crafting, trading, and other such features. My job requires a broad skillset that includes software engineering, spreadsheets, databases, technical and creative writing, and user interface design. I often implement the designs I create.
