Ben Woerner


By day, Ben Woerner is a mild-mannered husband, father and jeweler. By night he’s a game designer. Having run games for more than a quarter century, he finally began to design them in 2014 when he published A World of Dew, a samurai noir roleplaying game. It was followed by the companion book, Sound of Water, the following year. He’s also a freelance writer and developer and has worked for John Wick Presents on Blood & Honor, Wield, and the second edition of 7th Sea. He’s also written on Call of Catthulhu, The Baby Bestiary, Tiny Frontiers, Scion and more.

He’s a big fan of mitigated success and aspects in game design. He is an even bigger fan of his soccer-playing daughter; his gruff, adorable little man; and the loveliest of all women, his wife, Emily. For more information on Ben’s work, visit WoernersWunderWerks.com.
