Get to Know You Question: What is your favorite monster, and why?

In this episode, Paige and Ginny had a chance to talk to prolific DMsGuild creator Oliver Clegg (Mr. Darkshire now after his recent marriage!) about his start as a creator, his rise in popularity through the guild and on Twitter and some of the strange and wonderful ideas that he’s come up with over the years. We also talked about the gay agenda, including his product Curse of Hearts, the controversy surrounding it, and the battle of censorship of gay artwork in the world.
