Hey! I'm Clay Gardner, and I make role-playing games.

More specifically, I made OVA: The Anime Role-Playing Game.

At its heart, OVA is a game about telling larger-than-life narratives inspired by the worlds of Japanese animation and comics. I often discuss specific anime and how they can be represented by OVA on my blog. I'm also in the process of writing new Series Books that explore the tropes we know and love in even more detail. If you're already a fan, great! If you'd like to learn more about it, you can visit my website at

My passion is role-playing games, but much of my time is taken up with freelance work as a graphic designer. While I enjoy my work, I would really love to spend more time creating gaming content for fans like you! I'd also like to create a special place for you to gain early access to my writing and discuss that on the official Wise Turtle Discord. So your support here is greatly appreciated in helping me achieve that goal.

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Gaming!
