They have slaved for us, inspired us, and given generously of their worldly goods so that we can provide a space for you to roll dice with all your friends (and, if you’re lucky, your nemeses). If you see them at Scarefest, please bow deeply. If you like what they create, please patronize their websites so they will want to play with us again next year.
