I got an email today from somebody I hadn't talked to in years. I used to do tabletop RPGs with him many, many years ago.
I made a character for one of his campaigns that was a member of an alien race that I had introduced to multiple game worlds. I was quite surprised to get the email...because he's apparently still using them after all these years.
So, I figured I owed a shoutout to Gene DeMaitre - he's a great worldbuilder and I love the Venetian land whale.
Check out the campaign description here.
