Okay, so my #maelstrom2014 post is a week late. It’s been a busy week. The convention was a good time, as always. Many thanks to Avie and Vinny and the incredible Double Exposure staff for making it happen. I launched three games and played in two. *Vast & Starlit*Friday night I was full of nervous […]


My head cold is just as bad now as it was when I arrived at Dreamation, but I feel a whole lot better. After one of the most trying months of my life, we managed to make it through the wilds of New Jersey on Friday night, with barely an hour to spare. I ran […]
