Meet the Die Hard Dice Team
Castle Overseer, Artificer
When not attending to the finer details of running a castle, Todd can be found at his workbench, buried in experiments, tests, and samples. One could recreate much Die Hard Dice history by sorting the trinkets that call his workbench home.
Todd has been growing his hair out since the construction of Castle Die Hard. Some within the castle jest that he has a pact with a long-haired patron that he’s sworn fealty to. That’s not true of course. His pragmatic nature precludes him from believing in such silliness. Todd is also afraid to cut his hair.
"Wait, what is a color council?"
Product Development, Warlock
Can most often be found weaving devious incantations and designs. He leads the Color Council - a dangerous cabal of spellcasters determined to conquer the Western Reach of the Dicelands.
When not being finicky over how striking his spells look, he enjoys calligraphy, video games, and helping fellow gamemasters brainstorm for their home games. He's been told he may be cross classed as a Bard, as he enjoys being a support caster.
He is ever hopeful that Lego will re-release the Heroica line and is constantly disappointed.
"Promoted on the Color Council!"
Customer Care, Product Design, Bard

Mich ‘The Golden Gorgon’
Mich is not your average artificer! When not sequestered in her laboratory, experimenting with tantalizingly alluring creations, she schemes her way up the ladder of the Color Council, waiting for the right moment to usurp the throne.
She’s also working on an audio drama, and creating a new character for this week's game.
“Don’t mind the snake. She’s mostly harmless.”
Business Relations and Customer Service Manager, Druid
She spends her hours assisting fine merchants with the collection of wares for their shops. However, she gets lost in conversation easily and ends up spending too much of her own coin on the magical artifacts she finds there.
She can be found ranting to her canine familiar about The Lord of the Rings. She hopes to one day live far away from civilization, remaining only close enough to enjoy gaming with friends at the local tavern.
“I don’t have a good quote!”
From the shadows she comes to aid all those who might need her assistance! Tennessee is adept at listening to the whispers of merchant, adventurer, and castle goer alike in order to solve their ailments.
Weaving emails and crafting reports fills her days, but in the night she uses her time to read new books and learn more about the dark magic of Forensics.
"It'll be fine."
Product Specialist, Monk
Nate is a powerful chronomancer, determined to bring order to the Western Reaches. Something of a new player in the Dicelands, he’s begun working with the Color Council to make certain their designs and machinations are brought to fruition.
When he’s not lecturing on the immutability of time, he enjoys star-gazing, video games, and crafting new libraries of spells to duel his friends.
Ever curious, he can often be found picking up new hobbies.
Nate was recently cooled to absolute zero, but he’s 0K now.
“Journey before destination”
Warehouse Manager, Tech Priest
Seth marshals the forces of Castle Die Hard. When not overseeing shipments of armaments, he can be found wandering in the depths of the vaults, searching for forgotten relics, or serving as quartermaster, replenishing the food stores of our stronghold.
In quieter moments, Seth finds joy in painting intricate miniatures and honing his craft as a woodworker. He is often found seeking new adventures on tabletop, screen, or spending time with his loving wife and children.
"So, there's this boardgame on kickstarter..."

Fulfillment, Folklore Sage
Xela is a storyteller with a deep love of folklore, found-family tropes, and fiction reimaginings. A light-hearted soul who has never feared the dark when so many more dangerous things dance in the light. She is pursuing ways to write that flirt with the eldritch expanse where the known meets the unknown. Processing forbidden knowledge and unreleased dice projects are her specialties.
When she's out and about she is likely to paint spontaneously, eat merrily, and laugh heartily. She can often be found lecturing clouds on their timing and thanking anyone but the Fae for their help.
“When in doubt, always believe the locals.”
"Seriously, though. What is a color council?"
