I know some fantasy and comics writers who did.

I don't think it's a secret that Mercedes Lackey and Gail Simone both played at launch, as did a number of comic book people. (Gail was more obvious about it but Mercedes was a longtime Cryptic fan.)

The game, at launch, wasn't really to either of their liking and I don't think they've come back.

I was in Gail's guild in City of Heroes, along with Misty, Howard Porter, Mark Waid, and a few others. We had a "blink and you'd miss it" rivalry with Geoff Johns, who was in the Marvel comics supergroup.

I did talk briefly with Peter David about STO back at launch. He was intrigued by the use of Mackenzie Calhoun and said he planned to write a blog piece about it but never did.
