The Crew

Adam (They/He)

Adam started tabletop as a tween with AD&D back in the late 80s, and was forbidden to play it after a fight with his stupid older brother. World of Darkness all-nighters through his 20s and 30s led to a new life of PbtA and story-games obsession.

Rob (He/Him)

Got his RPG start in Palladium with one of the best universes ever - Rifts. Allowed to play on HappyJacks primarily to heckle Jason.

Stork (He/Him)

Stork played all the RPGs he could find in his youth, WAY back in the distant past of the late 70s but then life got in the way. Cut to many years later, Stork shared a book with Stu about a guy who used to game but then life got in the way.  Stu was inspired to start gaming again and swept Stork up in his wake.  Life still gets in the way, but now Stork tries to make some room for gaming.

Stu (He/Him)
Podicus Rex

Stu began role-playing in the late 1970s with the DnD Red Box Edition in a friend's basement. After designing several ridiculous Monty Hall dungeons, he discovered that stories can be about more than killing monsters and taking their stuff. In the mid-1980s he discovered the Generic Universal Role-Playing System (GURPS (Yeah!)). He is the co-founder and director of the World Famous Poxy Boggards, a songwriter and occasional Renaissance Faire performer. He's designed one little-played RPG, Moment of Truth, and has written three self-published novels. He is the father of two.
