Hi, I’m Tim Gray. I provide freelance editing and proofreading services to roleplaying game publishers. There’s a list of past projects at the bottom of the page. If you’d like to explore what I can do to help with your project, please do drop me a line.
- Editing and proofreading for two upcoming small press dark fantasy games.
- Editing and proofreading books for Out of the Ashes (community-based fantasy) and Liminal (urban fantasy).
I’m a word wrangler with a strong eye for detail and for the way that information needs to be structured and presented as a learning guide for a play experience. I can zap errors and see how to make your text smoother and clearer while working to your style guide and tone.
I’m also a system monkey with experience of lots of rulesets (including developing my own) and the way that mechanics contribute to the feel of play and a setting’s narrative physics.
Tim Gray is always my first choice as editor for any RPG project I publish. He is reliable, quick, and rigorous. Tim is skilled at seeing the sense and flow of a text, helping me better express ideas and achieve consistency.

Tim is a reliable and talented proofreader. He is careful and focused. Not only does he spot problems, he also suggests solutions. He has a good eye for spotting inconsistencies in design and layout, as well as in text.
