Age of Ashes, L.L.C.

Chantelle Yeager, Owner and Head Storyteller of Age of Ashes

Preferred Pronouns: she/her/hers

It is stories that create community, and it is stories that allow us to learn, to empathize, and to build bridges between ourselves. Stories are human contact regardless of distance or time. It fulfills me to create stories with you.

Chantelle is a mom, corporate drone, mistake maker, and longtime larp player, writer, and runner.

Megan Durham, Storyteller and Community Manager

Preferred Pronouns: she/her/hers

Megan has been creating stories and helping to organize events for as long as she can remember.  She comes from a long line of nerds, event planners, prop makers, and storytellers and likes playing with fire and heights considerably more than is reasonable OR safe. Her alter-ego is the chief technical officer of an SEO and digital marketing company, which she stumbled into after her BA in literature and writing failed to properly cause her to starve to death in a garrett at 28- as the prophecy foretold.

Jono Hanks, Storyteller

Preferred Pronouns: he/him/his

Jono has been larping in the PNW for about 8 years. His favorite stories involve political shenanigans and/or faeries. Bribes of meat, cheese, and tequila will be accepted, but will not be rewarded with the desired result.

Virginia Jordan, Photographer and Storyteller

Preferred Pronouns: they/them/theirs

Virginia is a costumer, photographer, and feral forest creature. They have been role playing since childhood, and have a deep love for medieval history, the cyberpunk genre, fae lore, and insisting that elf ears make everything look cooler. They currently work for a tabletop gaming company and freelance as a photographer on the side. You can see their work at virginiajordanphotography.com

Jameson Knopp, Storyteller

Preferred Pronouns: he/him/his

Though relatively new to the LARP community, Jameson has been involved with RPGs from a very young age and considers himself a storyteller at heart. He has a passion for worldbuilding and monstercrafting, particularly in all things weird and scary. Feel free to chat him up about his D&D campaign, his favorite RPGs, DMing tips, and why Gnomes are the worst thing that ever happened to tabletop.

David Paul, Storyteller

Preferred Pronouns: he/him/his

David is a long time larper, storyteller, crafter, gamer, cook, and general mischief maker. Having played in and worked for many of the local area larps for the past years, he brings a unique vision, wealth of experience, grand sense of humor, and long luscious hair to the team. A wild forest spirit at heart, he leans into the more mystical side of fantasy worlds, and likes to tell stories that delight, amuse and inspire thought. Always interested to meet new friends, discuss larp theory, or discuss new ways to make things glow in the dark.

Nicole Porter, Storyteller

Preferred Pronouns: she/her/hers

Nicole is a writer, creator and professional sand castle destroyer. As a third generation gamer, she has been roleplaying since her hands were large enough to roll dice and has been storytelling for almost as long. She enjoys reading, playing with her dogs, cooking and making players question their life choices.

Seth Bowman

Preferred Pronouns: he/she/him/his/her

Seth is a creature from beyond the farthest stars that does various levels of art, from the cute to the incredibly debauched. The dragon prides itself on its chameleonic styles, able to immitate and blend in to create unique feelings around a project. While generally its styles are more anime-esque, it has created art that has reflected realism all the way to pretensions of classical illumination.  Follow his work at http://thevoiddragon.com or
