A community manager for Turbine/WB Games and independent game designer, Seraphina E. Brennan has been a member of the professional video game community for over 5 years and a passionate gamer for over 20.
Starting at Massively.com in 2008, Seraphina rose to the position of Senior Editor and Community Manager, running large scale events for the Massively.com community in games such as Global Agenda, World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XI, and others. Even while herding cats (you know what we’re talking about, raid leaders), she wrote industry news and her weekly opinion column, Anti-Aliased. During this time, she also worked as a lore writer for “The Nethernet,” an independent online MMO for the Firefox web browser.
After leaving Massively in 2010 and moving to Boston to be ritualistically trapped by snow every winter, Seraphina joined Turbine/WB Games as a member of the Community team. While most known for her role on The Lord of the Rings Online, Sera also contributed on Batman: Arkham City, Gotham City Impostors, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, and F.E.A.R. Online. Sera currently works as a Community Manager on Infinite Crisis, the DC Comics MOBA where heroes and villains from all over the multiverse clash in explosive 5v5 battles.
When not living under her desk at Turbine or running around the forest at a New England LARP, Seraphina is also an independent tabletop game designer, currently working on (someday) finishing up her first title, Avarice Industries.
This year marks Sera’s sixth appearance at Dragon Con and fifth time as a speaker. She laments missing last year’s convention to this very day, even though she was out battling bare-handed against the Gotham Divided Leviathan.
