Hey all! I'm Richard. By day, I work as an instructional designer for colleges and universities and by night (or really, whenever) I work on game and setting design.

I'm generally focused on games that are adjacent to the NSR or FKR, but it's hard to overstate the influence of Psi*Run, AW, World of Dungeons, and Lady Blackbird on how I think.
