Alara’s Marcher Lord Roots

Alara’s Marcher Lord Roots

What can I tell you NAF followers about Alara’s Call that I haven’t already? Some of you have been with me on this journey since the days of the Marcher Lord Select contest. When we announced the release date for Alara’s Call, Becky Minor—NAF alumn and founder of the Realm Makers conference—asked me if that […]

The Most Important Moment 

The Most Important Moment

Just Listen 

Just Listen 

I’m back after Realm Makers (well almost). I’m in Las Vegas nursing a Realm Makers and too much food at the Paris buffet hangover.

We’re not even halfway to Realm Makers 2017, but I want to privide Realmies with withdrawals and provide gift ideas? There’s that saying the cure for a hangover is the hair of the dog that bit you. Realm Makers is the dog and there’s a lot of hair (fantastic Realm Makers related items). So you […]
