About the Guests:

Deborah Ann Woll

Brooklynite Deborah Ann Woll is a graduate of USC's BFA Acting program. She began her career on the highly acclaimed HBO series True Blood as the fiery baby vamp, Jessica. She can also be seen starring as Karen Page on Marvel’s Daredevil for Netflix.

Relics and Rarities

Welcome, adventurers! Prepare to enter a fantastical world with DM Deborah Ann Woll (Daredevil, True Blood). A world filled with mystery, monsters and murder! Relics and Rarities is an RPG series from Geek & Sundry based on Dungeons & Dragons. This episodic show is played in a new campaign setting, created completely from scratch by Woll, in which she takes a party of bold adventurers on a quest to stop an unholy prophecy from coming to fruition. She is joined by a core cast including Julia Dennis, Tommy Walker, Xander Jeanneret, and Jasmine Bhullar, with a different surprise celebrity guest in each episode.

Relics and Rarities is an immersive gameplay experience, where the adventurers join Woll inside of “Relics and Rarities,” a dusty curio shop filled with wondrous items which become a part of the campaign. The show features sets designed especially for each adventure, with unique real-world puzzles and props to make the gameplay even more exciting. Even though the setting is established and rich, none of it is scripted. The show premiered in February of this year to critical acclaim and was an instant hit. It is now available as VOD on Twitch and YouTube.

Greg Tito

Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back.

Shelly Mazzanoble

Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.
