THE FOUNDING of the eldritch press
Fletcher Haug and Guy Corey are the founders of The Eldritch Press. Fletcher discovered Dungeon & Dragons in 1978 and has created and played in campaigns with scores of diverse players through every edition of the game. Guy has an education in game development and a history as a video game junkie. He was blown away after his first game of tabletop D&D. He digested every shred of information on the game he can, yet he still hungers for more. Into the creative constructs of this duo a digital artist and illustrator wandered aimlessly and unaware of deep magic underfoot. He is now the Art Director and Principle Illustrator at The Eldritch Press. This coven forms the luminant triumvirate who craft-brew their products with great care. After the process ferments and matures, the triumvirate uses mind manipulation powers to draw in others who toil to tweak and playtest the contours of their proto-sentient worlds. Beware, lest you too become ensnared in the depths of this profound yet ecstatic magic.
The Eldritch Trinity
Fletcher is a master GM and a highly effective conductor of creativity. It is his job to germinate a population of gaming narratives and to select scenarios to orchestrate through the process of actualization.
Guy is the robust connoisseur and grounding element behind the products that The Eldritch Press makes manifest. His mastery of game mechanics and balance allows players to remain creative, and for Eldritch products to remain fresh and enticing.
Charlie is an award-winning digital artist and photographer. His unique style seeks to invite players into the creative act of image creation as opposed to simply representing adventure characters or environments.
