About The Author
Bartâ€™s first brush with the hobby started with the discovery of HeroQuest, in the early 90s. He was always the kid who played the bad guy, and it seems heâ€™s been stuck behind the GM screen ever since. His three campaigns are currently emerging from Covid-hibernation and he canâ€™t wait to revisit Curse of Strahd which, thirteen sessions in, has already gone completely off the rails! â€œAs any good campaign shouldâ€ he claims. Since 2018, Bart has been working as a freelance writer, designer and fantasy cartographer and is currently involved in several exciting projects! Heâ€™s also active on Twitter, sharing bits of history and folklore to serve as writing inspiration, as well as banging out the odd article on GM tips and advice.
