L. Richard Baker III, better known as Rich Baker, is a game designer who has worked on many campaign settings. He is also a member of the team developing D&D4.


Rich originally lived on the Jersey shore, before graduating from Virginia Tech. He served as a deck officer on board the USS Tortuga and qualified as a Surface Warfare Officer before becoming a game designer. Since joining TSR in 1991, Rich has worked on most of TSR's product lines at one point or another. In 1995 he won an Origins Award for Best New Role-Playing Supplement, for the Birthright campaign setting.

Rich lived in New Jersey, Virginia, Rhode Island, Virginia again, Louisiana, Virginia a third time, and Wisconsin, but now lives in Auburn, Washington, with his wife Kim, two daughters, and cats. He's a fan of Golden Age SF and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Rich is at the forefront of Wizards of the Coast's current range of Forgotten Realms and core Third Edition D&D accessory books, and author of several novels set in and below Faerûn. He also answers questions about the Forgotten Realms at the Wizards website's forums - see the below external links.

He is also at the forefront of designing the series "Axis and Allies: War at Sea", a game of tactical World War II naval battles.
