Rob is a workaholic cursed to only be compelled by work that does not pay. Between a perpetually-in-development novel, this podcast and the game development and editing behind it, and countless screenwriting projects with Jhan, there are never enough hours in the day. Storytelling in various forms has preoccupied them since the collapse of their career as a progressive metal vocalist during college.

Rob has long since given up on living a reasonable life, and is pleased to offer the fruits of their madness for your delectation.

Staci lives with her husband, her dog, & 2 cats in central Louisiana. She got her start with tabletop roleplaying and podcasting in 2013 with Cthulhu & Friends, a d20 modified Call of Cthulhu actual play game.

Dan has been playing games and telling stories since he first discovered Dungeons & Dragons at scout camp many years ago. Originally from the mid-west, he now haunts the craft breweries and coffee shops of Portland, Oregon. His hobbies include game design, petting cats, and making Rob cut in-jokes and details out of every recording.

Jhan has served as the senior reader at ScreenCraft, a boutique script consultancy, since 2013, and has evaluated10,000+ scripts, providing in-depth feedback on myriad client projects. Previously, he served as the Story Department Coordinator for Scenario LA, a literary management and production company in Hollywood. Jhan heads the Development Team at Seraph Films.

Much of this obsession with story can be credited to late, late nights in college watching and discussing Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Rob instead of paying proper attention to his studies, though it should be noted that Jhan is still a total dork with a solid 4.0 in the rear view mirror.
