A fever dream of dragons, design, and historical dialectic

Hi, I’m Nick Stefanski

Historian by training, user experience and instructional designer by profession, I write ttrpgs in my spare time.

On the blog, you’ll find backstory about Eastern European history and folklore in the media and how design for learning can overlap with rpgs and play.

If you want to gamify your teaching, use UX to up your DM game, or if you just really like Vodyaniki, please subscribe for the latest updates!
