Thank you for everyone who supported the community copies <3 My gaming group has loved every game of this I ran for them and I really wanted to get this to change things up for them but haven't had enough spare money to get it yet when one of my group reminded me could get a community copy, I appreciate it  <3


That cover is to die for! XD


Aye, if you like it, the artist Hannah Templer makes an amazing gays-in-space comic called Cosmoknights!


Awesome, I've got a new comic to read! :)


I was hoping for Hungry Shield Bisexuals but this is great.
