    System Helper of Dark Aeons, Season 3

Since then Stephen has realized that finishing school and personal pursuits require more of his time and that he doesnt have the time to work on material for the Center Stage Game System. All in all, he was an invaluable help during his time with the playtest group.

    Former Cast Members (Seasons 1 & 2)

     

    You are probably asking yourselves the question, "How could a Director possibly manage a Tabletop game Cast that large for Seasons 1 and 2?" To clarify, Season 1 of The Dying of the Light was performed in Live-Action (LARP), Season 2 was performed as both a Live-Action and Tabletop game.
