Carter Siddall — Blat
Carter Siddall played Dungeons & Dragons in his early teens, but thought there were too many rules, the other characters were too serious and it all felt like… work. He much preferred his time spent in community theatre (there were girls) and classes at The Second City. Playing The End of Time & Other Bothers as an improv comedy has made his return to the world of RPGs (after thirty years!) much more enjoyable.
Marisa King — Darcy
Marisa received an introductory Dungeons & Dragons game as a gift way back when, but quickly gave up when she and her family could not even defeat the first monster of the game, which appeared to be a centipede on steroids. She was reintroduced to RPGs very recently, with Episode 1 of Other Bothers marking her third game ever in a roleplaying universe. Although she is more at home on the stage, Other Bothers has been a welcome opportunity to practice her improv skills and have a whole heck of a lot of fun with her fellow players.
