A perpetual nomad, Amora blew into NC from the windy city. It was clear from an early age that Amora would be exceedingly geeky. A fan of all things sci-fi Amora enjoys binge-watching geeky shows that fall within that genre. More than anything Amora loves to travel and of course, geek out with friends and family. When not geeking out, Amora runs a small business with her partner. She’s obsessed with attending sci-fi conventions, and her favorite characters to cosplay include, Storm, Auntie Entity (Mad Max), and Kindzi (Defiance).

Origin Story: Tabitha is a transplant from Connecticut who enjoys fantasy/sci-fi novels, video games, anime, and tabletop gaming. Chances are if you met her at a young age you would find her nose in a Dragonlance book or playing D&D with her family. By day Tabitha works as a QMS Specialist and by night she blogs about the books she reads. And while she doesn’t have a current D&D campaign, you’ll catch her playing Shadowrun on the weekends via Zoom with her Connecticut crew.
Geeky Loves: Dungeons & Dragons, Shadowrun, Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Video Games (Favs: Final Fantasy, Borderlands, Kingdom Hearts), Anime (Favs: Sword Art Online and Attack on Titan), Supernatural and Stranger Things

As a Jill Of All Trades Acadia has a LOT of hobbies and interests. She runs a nerdy parenting Facebook group called Nerds With Nerdlings, owner of a nerdy online shop, is an internationally published fashion model, and has worked on NetFlix and Hulu tv/film sets, but most of all she loves spending time with her also-nerdy husband and their adorable son. Professionally she is a marketing manager and she brings order to most things she does, but she can still be a bit shy at first. When she was about 9 her eyes were opened to nerd culture when she watched Inuyasha at a friend’s house, but she was collecting Pokemon cards and watching Star Wars as early as she can remember.

Life Motto: Always do what you love because you love it.
