Court Games Interview

Court Games Interview In this episode of the Court Games RPG podcast, Kakita Kaori and Korvar invited me on to discuss my role in the development of Fantasy Flight Games’ story reboot for the Legend of the Five Rings as well as the writing I’ve done for it since.

My Top Five Freelance (and Life) Lessons from 2018 2018 was a whirlwind of a year for me.
