Nov 20, 2019

How do you deal with writer’s block and creative burnout? How do you juggle projects and stay productive? Janet from World Anvil sits down for an in-depth interview with all-round creative genius Chris Dravus! 

Chris Dravus is a game master, writer, creator, game developer and all round creative genius! He’s the Chief Creative Director and co-owner of the boardgame company Ironrise Games. They’ve already published their first game, Ironrise, which is a steampunk action-adventure game that focuses on the story that unfolds between heroes villains. They’re now working on a second game, which is a quick, fun, euro-style card game about little animal alchemists trying to make potions for their demanding customers, called Potionarium. 

Chris also collaborates with Guy Sclanders, the face of the hit Youtube Channel How to be a Great Game Master. They’re currently focusing on an adventure module and how different GMs might use the same tools.
