Help Me Name A Character!

All right. I recently ran a poll on my Facebook page, but for those who didn’t see it, here is the summary. I’m trying to decide on the name of the Felidae Clan leader in Changers 2. This character is gender fluid, and I picture xem as Black + Asian. Not that culture really makes…

Au Revoir, France!

From a side character: what gives you joy in life? Michaels, Duncan’s valet, has volunteered to answer this one. Michaels: I enjoy being in town, where we can gossip and be on the inside of all society’s flow of information. Being in the country is so dull by comparison. I like to be where the…
