Design & Layout:
If you are a fan of D&D 5e, you may already know Scott Craig by name. As an independent contractor, Scott has held the position of Editor in Chief for BroadSword Monthly since it’s inception in 2019. BroadSword is an original Fifth Edition periodical book by the internet’s most prolific 5e content creator, DMDave, and features a full color cover and black and white interior in the style of Dungeon Magazine. In his work on Dave’s projects, Scott has been responsible for the design and layout for every issue of BroadSword, the BroadSword Compendium Vol. 1 and the BroadSword Monster Compendium Spring 2021. In addition, Scott was responsible for the design and layout on the Legends of Omeria board game, a successfully funded DMDave Kickstarter. Scott’s designs are for both PDF and print products. Please take a look at the Portfolio to see more of his work.
Publishing & Distribution:
As an independent contractor, Jennifer has held the position of Director of Logistics for DMDave since spring 2020. She was brought into the team in order to fulfill two successful Kickstarters for DMDave, BroadSword Magazine and BroadSword Monthly Extra Attack.

In edition, she is also providing fulfillment and logistics services for the successfully funded Legends of Omeria Kickstarter. For the new Pexia’s Guide to Omeria & Hand of the Eight adventure path hardcover two-book Kickstarter, Jennifer is at the helm for publication, logistics and fulfillment.
