Lisa Pondsmith has run the business side of R. Talsorian pretty much since the beginning of the company and cannot think of anything she'd rather do than work in the game industry with her family. In addition, she occasionally writes for R. Talsorian Games, including as co-writer on The Witcher TTRPG. Oh, and she has the distinction of getting through a Mike Pondsmith Cyberpunk campaign as a Solo in jeans and sneakers.
Omari Akil (he/they) is a crop-top wearing game designer, publisher, music artist, streamer who broke into the industry with a hip-hop career building strategy board game called Rap Godz. He and his brother Hamu co-founded Colorway Game Labs to continue the important work of publishing games independently that focus on black experiences and culture. Omari more recently unleashed his musical talents by crafting original hip hop and dance music inspired by tabletop games and his life as it relates to them. You will be able to find three new games designed by Omari in stores and online in 2023 (Hoop Godz; Critical Care; Marvel: Damage Control)...and maybe an album.
