Krista Donnelly is primarily a gamer with interests spanning role-playing games, board games and ccgs. She's written many scenarios for the role-playing game Tékumel: Empire of the Petal Throne. One of them, The Great Chlén Race, involved a highly improbably race of lumbering, triceratops-like creatures on an elevated road. A fellow Tékumel aficionado, Carl Brodt, persuaded her to make a quick racing game out of it. At the time, there was hope that a Chlén miniature could be produced to go along with it, but plans for the miniature fell through. Alas!
