Welcome to my online portfolio, I am Greg Baxter. I am an honours graduate from Abertay University whose seeking to break into the world of games design as a professional pastime.
I am based in Dunfermline, Scotland having worked in Edinburgh with Skymoons Edinburgh as a Designer and with Digital Sports Arena as a QA Tester. Nowadays, I try to hone my knowledge with my past time as a habitual journalist at High Rez Gaming and some development practice in video games and even in more recently, in developing homebrews rules for the 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons through DM's Guild.

For my Honours project, I wanted to look into how one could best teach players not only skills but tactical strategy and principles for fighting games, a genre whose weaning popularity is partially attributed to the foreseen complexity.

"Minitrue" sample level
As a 3rd year university project, I had to craft a visual representation of the Ministry of Truth from George Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four", researching themes from the book to create a level in Unreal Engine 3 that best reflected the world of Oceania.

The Faerie Race Options
A homebrew document that allows players of "Dungeons & Dragons" 5th Edition to play a character of the Faerie race, a commonly difficult race to develop for the d20 ruleset established in Dungeons and Dragons.
