Comics Code Authority era horror—brutal, satanic, ridiculous.

Logan found a love for tabletop games and improvised storytelling in the last few years, especially the unique stories it creates. The tools that tabletop games give you also leave room for a lot of creative freedom, meaning that when different folx sit down to play, no two groups will ever create the same story. That’s pretty magical.  Since discovering this magic, Logan has published a number of games on itch, and is working on a larger project which can be found on Twitter.
