The Runiverse is coming to life! Magic Machine and Derek Kolstad are teaming up with animation company Titmouse to create, animate, and write the first animated TV series of it's kind!

Here is the Wizard Wednesday where Derek talks about the project, fond stories, and how he envisions the Runiverse.

"Kolstad will write and executive produce the eight-episode series, with each episode being one hour. Titmouse’s Chris Prynoski as well as Magic Machine’s @ElfJTrul, @Dotta and @BearSnake will also executive produce. Magic Machine will fully finance the series. “Forgotten Runes” is a universe originally composed of 10,000 Wizard NFTs.
