We Are Here Because...
We started NeverEnding because stories matter. Your stories matter. Each of us has a well of creativity, insight, and humanity to explore and share. When we play games like Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Vampire, or others we are co-creating stories. We’re building entire worlds.
We thought – how amazing would it be if other people could SEE those worlds? If people could share and experience stories beyond the table. Maybe these worlds and stories can live on in more than just a memory between friends.
Another reason is that for so many of us, our imagination has helped us through challenging, difficult times – heartbreaks, bullying, anxiety – the list goes on. We all need an opportunity to imagine a world more fantastic, to imagine ourselves as something more, something different. NeverEnding intends to be a space to explore those dreams and ideas.
Behind It All
Jamie Van Doren
Jamie had the original vision for NeverEnding. A long time (like really long, folks) player and DM, games like Powers & Perils and Dungeons & Dragons have been a staple of both childhood and adult life. He’s excited to help other people share their stories, their adventures, and their worlds. You’ll often see Jamie walking around with a Tome of… erm… notes. Yep. Notes. Nothing warlock-y to see here folks.
Art Team Lead
Kelci is just a terrific illustrator. And she’s so FAST. Not surprising, because she spent some time as a caricature artist. Kelci has several comic books + web comics she’s been involved with. She’s also an avid D&D player. She is bringing her amazing creativity and style to NeverEnding, so you can bring your characters to life. Note: While she’s unlikely to cast raise dead on your character, you might get a reincarnation out of her.
Finance & HR
If you’re going to be in a knife fight against the town guard, Kyle is who you want at your side! You might think that has nothing to do with developing a platform like NeverEnding, but Kyle brings the precision of an assassin’s strike and the loyalty of a paladin to all the Finance and HR duties she’s responsible for. She’s proof positive that multi-classing can be great!
Development Team Lead
What happens when a stealth ninja is also cybermancer coding wizard? Kristi is what happens. As our Development Lead, she makes sure our rag tag team of coders stays on track and focused on the priorities while building the bajillion features NeverEnding will eventually have. But Kristi doesn’t sit in her tower passing judgment, she’s right there in the thick of adventure – sleeves rolled up and keyboard in hand crunching code and smashing bugs.
