Tor Warren earned his Bachelor’s degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he began his exploration of tabletop role-playing games. In his work with youth, he seeks to build safe spaces that encourage creative expression. When he isn’t facilitating groups for students or playing games with friends, he’s creating comics and illustrations for fantasy anthologies. Tor enjoys reading extensive backstories and implementing them into collaborative narratives almost as much as he likes writing them himself.
