Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls Wasteland 2 and much more: An interview with - Liz Danforth

" What was your starting or entry point into the hobby industry? Liz DanforthLiz Danforth: I have to look back to being a game-player first and foremost, from my childhood. The family played games together — backgammon, bridge, cribbage, board games, dice games like Yahtzee, and I segued naturally to hobby games like Risk, Regatta, and Diplomacy once I learned such things existed (which happened in my early college years). That group of gamers included Ken St Andre, Bear Peters, Ugly John and Rob Carver, and Steve McAllister — all names you’ll recognize as associated with Tunnels & Trolls. I started playing T&T with 2nd Edition, and did sketches of characters and scenes while playing. Seeing those, Ken recommended my work to Rick Loomis at Flying Buffalo, and everything else followed from there." 4.5 out of 5
