Who are we?

We are Dorian and Talia, also known by our pen names Scott and Ashley Roepel. We’re both authors, writers, and creators who have a passion for TTRPGs and storytelling. We started playing TTRPGs in 2015 and knew we had to turn our (at then) hobby into a fantasy book series. We were hooked after that, and have built the TOS brand based around this love.

When not rolling dice, we are adventurous travelers, excellent home cooks, and always up for a day on the town. But lounging at home, playing video games, and spending time with our two cats (Danaerys and Gamora) is equally as fun.

We love to be part of the community and have appeared on Hope for TTRPG’s “Roll to KnowTwitch stream, Lightheart Adventures’ podcast, and blogs that have included Author Anthony Avina, Let it Be Gnome, Review Tales, and Awesome Gang!


Dorian has a background as a journalist and writer for nerdy news topics across the internet. Dorian handles all of the videography and collaborations for Thread of Souls. He can typically be found playing video games, but when he isn’t, he’s editing the books and loves playing with their two cats.
