Sarah “Rem” – MasterofRem
Sarah Krause, CEO/Executive Producer
Sarah fell in love with acting as a teen, when a little girl at the renaissance fair thought she was a real fairy. Since then, she escapes from the real world in books, gaming, and acting. In her free time, she also enjoys fencing, archery, learning new skills, and living new adventures.
Sarah created Rem Alternis in the Fall of 2018, out of the desire to share some of the stories she so loves.

Thomas Augstein, Director of Special Projects
Tom is also known in the Shadows as Teslan Kierinhawk. Wait, you don’t know who that is??? Well that suits him just fine as it’s the Shadows, folks. Tom has been involved with RPG’s and creative endeavors since the 1990s. He has been GMing Rolemaster, Dresden Files Accelerated and Shadowrun Missions, at conventions such as Gencon, Origins, and regional conventions since 2015. He primarily makes his scratch in Information Technology, but his true interest lies in building things. Hardware, software, websites, mechanical gizmos, or woodworking; it doesn’t matter – it’s all just pieces that need to get put together to do something.

Chris – penaal
Chris is a long time fan of nerd culture. Comics, anime, movies, martial arts and music are all things that hold his fancy. He draws heavily on these things to play fun and food obsessed characters in the different shows that he is part of. When he isn’t pretending to slay dragons with love and thunder; wrestling demons in hell; or stealing information from technomages with lube bullets; he is making sure kids aren’t body slamming each other in hallways and collects swords and axes.
Danny – Coddlesworth
Danny, Author / Creator
Danny is the author of “Coddlesworth’s Clockwork Circus,” an epic fantasy graphic series set in a steampunk world. That same world also serves as the setting his Twitch stream with Rem Alternis, “Like Clockwork.” He’s also one of Rem Alternis’s music producers and technical writing editors.
Besides his graphic series, Danny has been published in multiple sourcebooks for the “Shadowrun” TTRPG and spent four years as the lead developer for “Shadowrun Missions,” before resigning to focus on his world building and writing for CCC.
After spending time as a rave/club DJ in the late 90s and early aughts, he still produces continuous dance mixes once a year along with a variety of music projects geared towards his interests in tabletop gaming. His tendency to mix the fantasy elements of most RPGs into the foundations of EDM creates a unique style of beat driven music to play around the gaming table.

She also loves making candles and writing.
E. Robert Wilson, Community Manager
E. Robert Wilson is a “red box” gamer, Star Wars and Shadowrun fan, but also an admitted agent of chaos. Robert can usually be found in twitch chat or on Discord, and played Billy Berzerker for a season of live streamed SR5 Missions that was GM’d by Robert Loper. When approached to join Rem Alternis, Robert was shown an ‘organization chart’, wondered why Rem would want to throw a chaotic um.. good “Kinder mage”* into the mix, and promptly made a punny joke for Sarah Krause’s benefit. *ie there is a short human race in a popular fantasy game’s setting about dragons and lances, that has problematic stereotyping, but has many positive qualities that Robert identifies with at the game table.
