Staff: Our Wretched Hive of Scum & Villainy

EUCantina’s staff is dedicated to bringing you the very best in news, reviews, columns, interviews and other content. Although no money is involved, the rewards of seeing their hard work respected and enjoyed is more than enough for the wonderful staff, and without them the site could not function. Below are the names of the current staff of the EUCantina. Each staff member also has a short bio and introduction below their name so EUC readers can know the people who help run this place a little bit better.

All staff can be contacted though email at staff@eucantina.net.
