Zack enjoys Hearthstone (sorry Preston) , collecting unplayed board games, indie PC games, weird documentaries and betraying his friends in House on the Hill. By night he is The Director of Marketing, keeping Preston on task as well as bringing Vigilante its audacious edge, fun messaging, and this amazing (and humble!) website.

He also enjoys playing Counter Strike, Overwatch, Munchkin, and Cards Against Humanity.
Ryan Januszewski has been working in and around Austin for the last decade, building relationships he can bring to this tabletop.

Yes. Still.
