Irrgardless aims to elevate products we love by offering great design so that the authors can do even more of what they do best: make great games. As a multi-disciplined team that offers ideation and editing, we know not only that Irregardless is spelled wrong, but that it’s not even a word to begin with. But, as a team with a marketing edge as well, we also know that it matters to stand out.
Irrgardless has partnered with Smunchy Games to design the layouts on upcoming releases.

Robbert Irrgang has been a graphic designer and web developer for close to 20 years. He is a bit newer to the RPG scene, but jumped straight into the deep end with a trip to GenCon and has been hooked ever since.

Info about your company and professional services

What you do partnering with Smunchy Games
We are partnering with Smunchy Games on a future project to bring the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Akasha ruleset (written by Michael Sayre) into Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. The details of the collaboration are (at the time of this writing) still not available for public consumption. You know what that means right? A good ole’ fashioned mystery!
My name is Ryan Dyson and I am a co-founder of Cobalt Sage Creations. I started game mastering in 2001 while I was in high school with my brothers as players. As I grew to cherish the act of storytelling through gaming, my players’ enjoyment grew along with my creations. With Jacob, I sought to bring our worlds, creatures, and stories to the world and founded Cobalt Sages Creations.
Why you do what you do
Cobalt Sages Creations seeks to bring the Theia Campaign Setting to fruition. Moreover, Cobalt Sages Creations seeks to provide an avenue for novitiate authors to get their work to the community in an uncomplicated way. Cobalt Sages Creations’ founders, Ryan and Jacob, firmly believe in the good that can be done by tabletop roleplaying games in the lives of players. This belief drives Cobalt Sages Creations to not only seek to elevate their work but the work of others seeking to improve the community of players.
I seek to amplify tabletop roleplaying gaming by exhibiting the different forms fantasy settings can take. Furthermore, as the tabletops roleplaying games achieve growing popularity I seek to aid the community in showing the merits of this form of entertainment. Lastly, I wish to detail Theia as a campaign setting.
More than anything I want to see the eyes light up in people when enjoying a story. I am an avid reader and in each tale, I find so very much to enjoy. I get into the characters and have, on more than one occasion, cried at the loss of a character or at their glory in the story. I want to help bring that type of joy and connection to others.
