Hiya! I'm Doug "Spyglass" Marshall, with SpyglassRealms as the moniker I operate under in some form or another across the web (except the places where I couldn’t switch over from my previous nethandle, WorldBuildersInc.) I'm an astrobiology major, a gigantic space nerd, and as my presence here implies, I’m a huuuuge worldbuilding geek. On a related note, I produce two podcasts: The Escape Artists, an actual-play TTRPG show with some friends set in Aedrynn; and Starhopper Radio, a short-form science fiction anthology series set in the Diaspora universe.

You can find all of the sites on which I lurk through my Linktree. Enjoy the tour!
