Tell us something unexpected about yourself!
I have a wizards staff in my bedroom… I made it for a Halloween dance (Jive
& Lindy Hop), I invested a lot of time sanding it down, burning in the runes and finding a orb for the crooked end. It was so nice that Cath my partner wouldn’t let me get rid of it.
