LaForge is Lance and Joan Berg’s brain child. They separately have spent most of their adult lives running businesses at renaissance festivals and sci-fi/fantasy conventions. In 2015, they married and put their ventures together, so that they now have several tent operations, and multiple physical buildings with an array of products at 5 to 10 different faires on any given year. Lance has been making swords and other weaponry since 1992, Joan has been making copper roses and art nearly that long, they’ve both been in the games business since around 1994. Finally, as a passion project, they’ve been rescuing and fostering tiny kittens since 2017, bottle feeding and finding homes for what now numbers over fifty.
