T.C. Jester is a writer, philosopher, and reality hacker. She has been playing the Game for over 30 years and is a level 888 Foole. She has been trying to formulate a unified theory to explain the absurdity of the universe for most of her life. It was in Australia, the land of cheerful surfers, that T.C. discovered the Temple of the Cosmic Joke and was struck by the coincidence of their identical initials. She soon came to discover that it was a HOC (Helpful Occurring Clue) and began to learn all about the Mega Game. With the TCJ's permission, she wrote EMAG OF EFIL based on The Temple of the Cosmic Joke Book of Utterly Useless Really Unhelpful Don't Bother It Will Only Confuse You and Make Matters Worse Don't Say We Didn't Warn You Game Info. T.C. also wrote Book 2,  WAY OF THE FOOLE, and is currently writing Book 3 through 5 of the EMAG OF EFIL series and making a complete foole of herself.

Kate Rothschild is the creative leader of Fooles Group and has extensive experience in cross-media for kids and adults.  Her creative work has been produced, published, performed and played with in virtual and physical spaces and has been called “a comedic ride through the absurdity of modern times that skewers everyone” and “dead on.” She wrote, directed and produced the political comedy, Operation Knockout, which was featured in the New York International Fringe Festival and her comedy troupe, Fasten Your Seatbelts, had a series of sold-out shows featuring her provocative short plays.  She developed one of her plays Pepe & Pierre into a short film and has also written, directed and performed with a number of comedy groups.   Kate’s work is the title feature of the book Hit the Nerve: New Voices of the American Theater. As a Senior Producer at Nickelodeon, she developed content for the Web, TV, mobile, and console including the popular Wildlife Rescue simulation game series with over 7 million players.  She also produced Toondirector, an interactive cartoon series, animation for the Romeo TV show and marketing content for numerous clients including Paramount Pictures.  Kate received her B.A. from Brown University in International Relations.  Her study of Game Theory and Diplomacy have proven surprisingly useful.
