Early life and education
Schick attended Kent State University in Ohio.
Schick, as head of design and development at TSR, brought aboard Tom Moldvay and David Cook and many others as TSR continued to grow in the early 1980s. Schick created White Plume Mountain in 1979, an adventure module for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, published by TSR in 1979; the adventure was incorporated into the Greyhawk setting after the publication of the World of Greyhawk Fantasy Game Setting (1980). White Plume Mountain was ranked the 9th greatest Dungeons & Dragons adventure of all time by Dungeon magazine in 2004. One judge, commenting on the ingenuity required to complete the adventure, described it as "the puzzle dungeon to end all puzzle dungeons."
Lawrence Schick wrote the book Heroic Worlds: A History and Guide to Role-Playing Games, which was published in 1991.
Schick has written many other games during his career. Schick is a former executive with America Online. In May 2009, Schick joined ZeniMax Online Studios as the lead content designer for The Elder Scrolls Online. In 2010, he was promoted to lead writer, and he became lead loremaster in 2011.
