About The Author
The Tom Collective is a Sage Mega Brain of massive ambition and moderate indolence, fueled largely by his preoccupation with games and bourbon (his preferred pickling agent). His minions produce mildly informative crafting videos on youtube, and he has entrusted one in particular with the production of a stage play centered around the hobby. Should his plans be realized, and they will, he shall take over the world by way of gaming dominance in no less than several decades. Or thereabouts. He also likes cats.
