- Convention Moderation Lead & Safety Coordinator -

The Illusion Horror Con will be the first of hopefully many conventions Crystal has helped organize. Despite being a life-long tabletop board game enthusiast, Crystal didn’t start RPGs until 2016. Crystal will try just about any game system once, and has felt a strong affinity towards narrative-driven and role play heavy games like Kult: Divinity Lost.
