Archmage Derek – Lead Designer, Writer, Editor

Archmage Derek began his foray into TTRPGs in 2013 with D&D 3.5 as a first time Dungeon Master. After the release of D&D 5e, he became enchanted with game design, and opened the Mage College. You can find him on Twitter @Archmage_Derek. In 2019 he’ll be DMing for Tylvein: Legacy of Eldrin set in his and Kannah’s homebrew world of Tylvein, on Goldhart Gaming.

Fun Fact: Archmage Derek’s class levels are in Bard and Rogue. He’s not actually a wizard.

Head Curator Kannah – Illustrator, Playtester, Editor,

Head Curator Kannah started playing TTRPGs with D&D 3.5 in 2013, as one of Archmage Derek’s first players. Since then TTRPGs have influenced a lot of her art, which you can find more of on Twitter @itskhanuh and on Instagram @khanuhdraws. Should you pick up any of the Mage College’s DMsGuild Products, the art in them are created by Kannah herself.

Fun fact: Most of Kannah’s class levels are in Rogue. We didn’t think “Head of Acquisitions” sounded appropriate for an artist.
