Lloyd Gyan & All the Things We Do Not Talk About – Part One

Have you met Lloyd Gyan? Sometimes, it feels that no matter what tabletop RPG convention you attend, you run into him (which is always a pleasure).

Anyway, if you haven’t met him here’s your opportunity to catch up with this proud employee of Modiphius, freelance writer for Chaosium‘s upcoming “Rivers of London Roleplaying Game” and co-host of “James & Lloyd Read Indie RPG Blurbs So You Don’t Have To“.

He also shares with me conflicted memories about a time that kids these days don’t know how lucky they are to have dodged it.

I hope many of you will join me at AcadeCon (on  Saturday November 7th or Sunday November 8th) and GROGMEETish (on Saturday November 17th) for a session of my game “Paris Gondo – The Life-Saving Magic of Inventorying“.
