My name is Taylor Hubler, but I also have an internet handle of CalebTGordan in case anyone has seen that around online. I got started with game making very early on in my life because of a very creative family. I’ve been playing table top RPGs for about 20 years now, and games are a huge part of my life.
I got my start with actual publishing and my foot in the industry with Paizo’s RPG Superstar. I was top 32 in 2015, and top 16 in their last season of the contest. I had gotten published in Wayfinder a couple times before that, but it was my work with the contest that gave me the confidence to reach out to people.
I did a bunch of PF1 work for 3PP. (I’ll include a link to my paizo site profile which has a mostly complete list of stuff I did during that phase of my career in a moment) Then life sort of got in the way until PF2. I did two products (Fellow Travelers: Animal Companions and Fellow Travelers: Cohorts, Followers, and Hirelings) then life got in the way again.

Our Slimy Home is my most recent published game, my first self-published game, and something dear to my heart. I was inspired by games I played at Big Bad Con in 2019, specifically The Quiet Year and The Ground Itself. (and for those not familiar with the second one: https://everestpipkin.itch.io/the-ground-itself)
This game and the desire to share it with the world were one of the few things that got me through the pandemic. I was fortunate enough to do playtests and get art in those playtests before the shut downs. From there I used my industry contacts for feedback and finding the talent I needed to finish it up.
Our Slimy Home is a map drawing, slice of life story building game. You take on the role of a dungeon lord, answer story prompts, and do some art all to create a dungeon and tell the story of the monstrous residents that rely on you. Its good for all ages, and has produced some pretty great stories in the times I’ve seen it played.
Thank you and I look forward to the questions
