Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While creating the card art for the Lone Champion in Kobolds & Catacombs, Kindred took the opportunity to "put himself in the game" by modeling the Lone Champion's appearance after himself. As a result, Lone Champion is also Kindred's favorite character from the set.[19]
  • Kindred sometimes streams himself creating art on his Twitch account.
