The Fate of Isen is Oliver's first experience with tabletop role-playing games.

Julz Burgisser - Marley Kraff
Julz Burgisser leads three very different lives; in one she's the rock’n’roll fiery lead singer of covers band WINK, in another she's a dark and fiesty comedian and founder of comedy show production company Capital Comedy, and in her other life she can be seen behind a bar making coffees and cocktails.
But… the life she loves living the most has been a hidden secret, lived in basements and student flats all over town... until now that is. Now she's a self-confessed RPG addict and also a cosplayer too.
Julz plays Marley Kraff a half-elf saxophone playing a multiclass bard/ranger. Her family was semi-famous for their ‘Kraff Cider’ until their presumed death years ago. Ever searching for fame and fortune and occasionally remembering to look for possible sightings of her brothers, she travels the world letting nothing get in her way.
Josh Kingsford - Trestlespoon Dur
Josh Kingsford is a comedian, and a first-time tabletop role-player.
He won the coveted Best Newcomer Award at the 2018 NZ International Comedy Festival, and received two nominations for best joke in the 2018 Wellington Comedy Awards.
Josh plays a gnome rogue named Trestlespoon Dur who has searched over a century for his missing kin. He grows bored when sitting around in one place for too long, and yearns for adventure.
He's an adventurous little soul and is always up for whatever shenanigans present themselves.
Brad Zimmerman - The Dungeon Master
Brad Zimmerman used to be a comedian and a writer but he stopped doing those because he'd rather be playing/planning/thinking about D&D.
He has been building the world of Isen in his head since he was a teenager, and has tried (and failed) multiple times to transfer it to the page. D&D has become the perfect way to get it out of his head and into reality.
He currently runs four separate games set in Isen with their own storylines that are all happening in the same time period. The Fate of Isen follows one of those storylines, but is directly affected by events of the other three.
He is a father of two insane little girls and enjoys trying to make his wife appreciate D&D half as much as he does.
