The work of discovering the Light of Passion universe and bringing that to you to explore has been an amazing pleasure. I'd like to thank everyone who has taken the time to read what I'm working on: your interest is a huge part of why this is worth doing. I appreciate the feedback I've already received and would be delighted to hear anything you'd like to share.
