Welcome to the first of many design blogs, direct from your friends at the Dungeons & Dragons Studio!
Feature Interview: Alex Kammer is a longtime D&D fan and collector, and he also just happens to be the founder of Gamehole Con, co-owner of True Dungeon and an incredibly nice person. He called in to speak to Shelly and Greg about their recent trip to Origins Game Fair, what the Game Hole actually is, and Alex's collection of all TSR products in the original shrink wrap. WHAT?

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.
