Veteran game designer Ken Rolston, former lead designer on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and lead creative visionary on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, joins the MMORPG studio Turbine as director of design.

“Ken will lead the vision and the implementation of all aspects of game design for Turbine,” the Massachusetts-based studio responsible for Dungeons and Dragons Online, and Lord of the Rings Online wrote in a press release Friday.

Before video games, Rolston worked on various pen-and-paper RPGs including Dungeons and Dragons, and RuneQuest.

The company announced several other new hires joining Rolston: Alan Villani, formerly of NetherRealm Studios, joins as vice president of technology, Jai Singh, formerly of Zynga, joins as executive director of technical operations, and Demetrius Comes, formerly of Petroglyph Games, joins as executive director of engineering.
