Friendly reminder:

There is a game of chess running between the users of Twitter and the users of Mastodon and you can be part of it by following @votechess and participate in the poll for the next move.

Past friday Neverwood Records published "Haunted Kingdom Ayaruza - The abandoned abbey at the seaside" on tape. This is the first release for this Dungeon Synth project of mine.
