Lor Maros / Producer
Harriet Prebble is a professional actor, voice artist and producer based in Wellington, New Zealand. Harriet has performed in theatres across the country, and recent credits include Massive Crushes at BATS Theatre, and The Atom Room, The Father and Three Days in the Country at Circa Theatre. She was nominated for Supporting Actress of the Year and Most Promising Female Newcomer at the 2015 Wellington Theatre Awards for her role as Janet Frame in Gifted. She has also lent her voice to numerous characters in the animated series Nori Roller Coaster Boy, alongside Thomasin MacKenzie and Peter Hambleton.
Harriet is the founder and artistic director of Canvas Abyss, the production company behind Dungeoning & Dragoning, a live D&D show that enjoyed a sold-out season at Wellington's Circa Theatre. She is also the co-creator and co-producer of The Road Unknown.
Harriet plays Lor Maros, a triton Wild Magic Sorcerer from the cloistered and militaristic enclave of Algas, deep beneath the Bay of the Dancing Dolphins. With her long indigo hair tied in rigid plaits and her simple, quick-drying cream robes falling in neat lines over her light green skin and carefully arranged fins, she is every bit the prim and disciplined sea creature. The cracks only start to show when she reaches into the weave, flinging unbridled power and pure energy back into her native plane, as uncontrollable as it is beautiful. When the weave mingles with her bloodstream, her skin cracking with dark scales and her veins bursting with biolumiscent energy, she is almost unrecognisable - but that's often preferable to the times she manipulates the weave in still silence...

James works at Circa Theatre as Marketing Executive and runs his videography business Able Cain.
Balthazar Hinds has a massive chin and a massive heart. He also has the chest to hold it. Bulging out of him like a barrel, Balthazar is adorned in chain mail, a brilliant purple robe and the sign of Torm The True. At 6 foot four, Balthazar is easily noticed in a crowd and he likes it that way. Charismatic and dashingly handsome, Balthaxar wears his shock of white hair in a top knot with some strands drifting down framing his baby blue eyes. He has a pinkish skin colour but with a green tint, revealing his Half-Elf heritage. He has a long scar under his left eye and a great smile all the time. No need for facial hair; the chin does all the work.
Maisie Thursfield, a real-life bard with a love of the Bard, is a classically trained violist and singer with a love for live performance. A prolific actor also, her most recent Wellington theater productions include Melancholy Play and One Man, Two Guvnors.
Maisie plays Shasta, a ghostwise halfling Trickster Cleric of Erevan. Raised by a community in a reclusive tribe in Chondalwood, she doesn't carry a last name - biological parents pale in comparison to the bonds of the wider tribe. Very symbiotic with nature, she often resembles it, with her flowing dark brown linens and frizzy hair filled with sticks and leaves from the trees she likes to sleep in. Like Lor, she refuses to wear shoes, preferring instead to rely on her hairy tough feet to guide her through. Although she can be caustic and often lets her surface judgments run freely from her mouth, deep down she has an intense desire to right the wrongs of the world, and fight tooth, nail and mace for the oppressed beings of the Forgotten Realms.
Giacomo “Gigi” Antonio di Farlaggio
Wellington actor and standup David Bowers-Mason is a frequent finalist at the Wellington Pun Battle, has performed with the Wellington Footlights Society, and is a regular on stage and screen - though they are usually small stages, and small screens.
He plays Giacomo “Gigi” Antonio di Farlaggio, a human Arcane Trickster with a permanent 5 o'clock shadow and an abrasive personality. His sizeable mutton chops frame a weather-worn face, red nose, and the bright, animal eyes shared by all who hail from the Yuirwood. At 5’6” tall - and quite plump - he is not an imposing figure. His unassuming stature, however, belies a cruel combatant. He’s the product of a lifetime of dirty jobs for ethically dubious employers.
