|Trampas Whiteman was first exposed to Star Wars when he was five years old, and it has had a lasting impression on him. Trampas began gaming back in 1991 with "Jan Tolbara" as his first DM. Since then, Trampas' interest in gaming has grown exponentially.
Trampas serves on the Seeker High Council for the official Spelljammer site, Beyond the Moons, as the Krynnspace editor. Trampas is also the founder and chairman of the Whitestone Council, which runs both Dragonlance.com (the official d20 Dragonlance site for Sovereign Press) and the Dragonlance Nexus (the official Dragonlance gaming site for Wizards of the Coast).
Trampas has had the opportunity to work with Dragonlance authors Tracy Hickman, Margaret Weis, and Don Perrin while serving on the Whitestone Council. Weis and Perrin's company, Sovereign Press, has recently gained the licensing rights for Dragonlance gaming. The Whitestone Council is working with Sovereign Press to write the upcoming Dragonlance Campaign Sourcebook, to be produced by Wizards of the Coast and released in the summer of 2003. Trampas serves as liaison between the Whitestone Council and Sovereign Press.
Trampas serves as Assistant Editor for Star Wars: The Forgotten Tales and specializes in Wookiee Force-users. He also plays in the Lost Jedi PBeM game, where he plays his favorite Star Wars character, Kurrelgyrre (Wookiee Jedi Knight).
