“As the physicist John Wheeler said, “If you don’t kick things around with people, you are out of it. Nobody, I always say, can be anybody without somebody being around.”
Ken Robinson, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
Patricia and I first gamed together in 1990. We were playing an RPG called Chivalry and Sorcery (1st Edition) set in a Middle-Earth variant. That game still runs today, albeit intermittently. In 1996 we were married and we now have four children - Jessica, Ariella, Cassandra, and Raphaella. Having a family of our own and our own business interests means we have little time for gaming these days -- though when we play we do still enjoy it immensely.
The heyday of our gaming was when we were at university. We had no money but we had loads of time -- and games are a great source of cheap entertainment. These days family and work soak up the bulk of our time. In short where once we were time rich but money poor now we find ourselves with enough money to buy any game we like but not enough time to play them.
Back in 2007 we decided to start manufacturing, importing, and retailing tabletop gaming products. We wanted to produce gaming products for gamers like ourselves who find themselves facing time constraints. From the beginning we decided we wanted to support small, family run businesses like our own. Over the years we have become friends with many small, independent manufacturers and it is a pleasure to offer their products for sale through our website. While we sell many different products our specialty -- what makes us unique -- are the plaster products we manufacture in our studio.
The produts we manufacture are designed to help you get the most out of the time you devote to gaming. They are there to enrich your gaming experience, to make it more fun, to ensure that you and your gaming buddies look forward to the next session -- whenever it might be.
This business is a hobby for us. We attend to orders on weekends on a first come, first served basis. Many things in our lives have a higher priority than this business at the moment and for the forseeable future. If you are worried about your order, please email us before it becomes a crisis. Occassionally we can fill an order mid-week or bring in one of our part-timers to help with casting if need be.
