Hello and welcome! I’m back with ANOTHER guest the amazing Saffron Hefta-Gaub, creative director for Midnight Ceremonies Media, GM for The Cromwell Chronicles, Stephanie Chaplin in The Valkyrie Cycle AND MORE. So much was discussed and learned! I’ve got a “new” found love for Stephanie Chaplin (was already enamored with The Valkyrie Cycle), learned more about fan studies scholarship AND we reminisced about our time as Critical Role fans!
