“Writing is an act of discovery in which you peel back the layers of the story as you write it down.”
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

“Hardison held up a gigantic bag that Parker could have used as a dress. "I picked up all sorts of things," he said with a smile. "I grabbed the entire run of Chew, and I savaged the first trade paperback for the Magic: The Gathering comic, signed by the writer, no less.”
Matt Forbeck, The Con Job
