Byron "sarge" Pepper
Featured Panelist

Byron “Sarge” Pepper, emerged from the snowy banks of Michigan six years ago to give a set of panels at Colossalcon, breaking the mold to bring RPGs and Tabletop to the anime circuit. There was a lot of interest to begin with when he told the masses how to DM fairly with his first panel, and was quickly invited back for another year with how popular the panel was. Now, with 5 years under his belt, and a plethora of panels, he is ready to take other cons by storm and bring the good word of fun back to tabletop, but also to help make panels exciting again! Sarge is a veteran Dungeon Master of many campaigns, both playing and GMing, but also headed up a 150+ person living community centered around Shadowrun for 2 years as GM Head and Lore head. He’s streamed his games on Twitch and Youtube and just wants everyone to get along.

Samurai Dan & Jillian
Guest

Dan Coglan, a.k.a. “Samurai Dan” and his wife, Jillian are the acknowledged masters of marital… er, MARTIAL mayhem. This dynamic duo travels the civilized portions of the U.S., bringing their unique show to curious and horrified audiences alike. This is their SECOND year at Nyancon!

In addition to their high-energy, mostly safe stage shows (where razor-sharp blades and barbs fly) the couple teaches historical and hysterical panels on the way of the warrior. Offering a wide range of lectures and interactive workshops, Dan and his lethal love Jillian are guaranteed to provide con attendees with fun and fulfillment.

Due to a supreme lack of filter, Dan also performs stand-up comedy and lives to embarrass his wife onstage, in censored and uncensored settings.

A storyteller at heart, Dan is finishing his third horror novel, and offers insights into the creative process with panels for the aspiring writer as well.
