His artwork makes me really feel like I’m in a basement with pals, arguing the effectiveness of the magic missile spell. Constructing [my band] Self Protection Household into the mission got here naturally as these have been concepts we’d been speaking about for a while whereas Chris [Tenerowicz] expanded into composing music for TV. Run The Dungeon is the results of these two issues colliding into a whole storytelling expertise for me, and I feel for readers as effectively.”
