We just finished up our auditions for both the MAELSTROM (improvised storytelling) and SKALD13 and A) it was an absolute blast and B) the talent this year was OFF THE HOOK!  I see storytelling shit all year long and even I was impressed.  Both Rebecca and Lori (who assisted in the auditing) were suitably blown away!

So, without any more fucking hyperbolic fanfare, here they are:
