It's not often you get to talk to fan of Dungeons & Dragons who also happens to be involved in governing at the state level. Steve Hobbs is a State Senator and he splits sessions at the Capitol building in Olympia...
Who thought chocolate and peanut butter would go together so well? Authors Patrick Rothfuss (The Name of the Wind) and Jim Zub (Avengers, Legends of Baldur’s Gate comics) call in to talk about their four-issue series pitting the characters of the popular animated show against the wonders of D&D lore and mechanics. “Two Cool Hosts” Greg Tito and Shelly Mazzanoble drop a whole bunch of bombs in their semi-professional opening. Speaking of mixing chocolate & PB, we have a special Lore You Should Know – Ari Levitch takes a break from getting Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica out the door and tells us everything about two of the guilds featured in the book: The Golgari Swarm and the Selesnya Conclave.

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 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.
