Minion Tale
A Minion Tale, Part 4: That Hilda

Hilda the Vampire’s role, officially, was Chief Decorator. As far as Minion #13 could determine, she had never been interviewed for this position, nor had she ever actually applied.

Wyrmwood Dice Vault
Prize Peek: All Over The Place

We are two weeks out from AVL Scarefest, and things around the compound have reached a frantic pitch usually reserved for especially popular shopping days or kudzu outbreaks.

Bring Out Your N00BS!

Here at Minion Headquarters, we get a lot of interesting inquiries about Scarefest. Admittedly, most of them are asking things like would we like to make a million dollars helping some unfortunate djinn launder their cash from the dimension next door (don’t try it…it’s totally a scam), but we also get lots of messages from
