Regarding Mandy’s Post

WTF Studio unreservedly condemns abuse and harassment, and wishes all victims healing and recovery.

Yesterday Mandy Morbid shared her post detailing her experiences of harassment and abuse at the hands of Zak Smith, also known as Zak Sabbath, a highly visible individual in the indy rpg scene. Two other women also added support to her account. The experiences they recount are horrifying.

I and everybody affiliated with WizardThiefFighter Studio unreservedly condemn abuse and harassment. We all sincerely hope Mandy can safely continue her journey of healing and recovery.

I have never met Zak or Mandy in person, however, I have worked with Zak Smith as a graphic designer on one of his books. I also credit him as one of several individuals responsible for my discovery of the OSR (or what have you).

In light of Mandy’s brave account, neither I nor anyone affiliated with WizardThiefFighter Studio will collaborate with Zak Smith in future.

Update, 2019.02.13: There is now a fourth woman’s corroborating account.
