Matt Forbeck

“A group of adventurers is known as a "party," and not just because they like to celebrate their success together in the end. Your party should be as close to you as your family--assuming your family can cast spells, kill monsters, and bring you back from the edge of death.”
Matt Forbeck, Dungeonology

Matt Forbeck, The Con Job
