Last year, ‘The Flight of the Arrowhead’ team began a new partnership with Seattle’s Kobold Press, a publisher of 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons rulebooks. Andrew Teheran, Joao Tarouco, Andre Marques, Andre Zatta and Dylan Alves, along with interns from East Side High School’s Media Arts Magnet Program, have produced animated content for the game company. This partnership will continue this year with more media content, internships and other amazing geeky stuff.
