It should make sense that improv comedians have jumped into playing D&D but it’s one of those things we need to speak to performers to really understand. Justin Michael and Eric Martin are two such performers and they essentially Dungeon Mastered an original Audible series of comedians telling a crazy story about the movie-popcorn butter capital of Northern California. The plot points were outlined but all of the performances and details were improvised, not unlike how D&D sessions unfold. Check it out! On Lore You Should Know – Ari Levitch dishes on some new monsters and NPCs you will find in Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica.

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.
