Scott Colby

Scott is the editor of a variety of Outland Entertainment projects (including Pileaus) and the author of the Deviant Magic series of fantasy novels.

A resident of Cambridge, Massachusetts, Scott lives in and works out of an overpriced studio apartment while dreaming of writing novels on a yacht. You might find him scribbling in a notebook in one of the neighborhood breweries, running through the area’s narrow side streets, or rooting for the Sox at Fenway.

Anton Kromoff

Project Director

Anton is a game designer, journalist, project director, and more. Some attribute his ability to juggle so many hats at once to his youth though the circumstances surrounding that time in his life are spotty at best. General accounts that have been cobbled together by old window women and moonshiners say he was born in the hollow of an old birch tree thrice struck by lighting. Others have mentioned he was taught his first words by a band of friendly Bigfoot who showed him the secret language of the hills and sheltered him until he was old enough to forage for himself. These days he can be found in the company of his lovely wife and their spoiled (and very well-loved) cats in their home near the sea.

Shannon Potratz

Graphic Designer

Shannon has been an illustrator and graphic designer for almost 30 years. He has worked on a variety of projects for Outland Entertainment since 2008, including games, books, comics and more. In 2021 his first major comic book was released, written by Cullen Bunn, called Dragonring. He has since released his creator-owned book, titled The Redeemers, with his friends HJ Whapeles and Andy Owens and published by Outland.

Shannon currently resides in Spokane, Washington. Ever since he was 4 years old, he dreamed of being an artist with the encouragement of his father who always said, “do what you love.” He’s never deviated from that goal and to this day, you never see him anywhere without his sketchbook at his side…
