JASMINE WALLS

Jasmine Walls (she/her) is a comic writer, artist, editor, and hot chocolate connoisseur. She has been playing D&D, along with a variety of other D20 type games, since high school. As a Black, queer player and occasional GM, Jasmine chooses to focus on stories and gameplay that emphasized teamwork, empathy, and are unapologetically inclusive. She has written several comics, but none as well-known on the internet as a short D&D comic called "Fated" about a player botching his attack rolls so badly he seduces his enemy. Her favorite class to play is a Bard with combat abilities, and if given half a chance, she will always choose to play an orc, goblin, or skeleton.

DOZER

Dozer (they/them) is a nonbinary illustrator, comic artist and bird parent from Germany. They love stories about friendship, found family, diverse and flawed characters. They’ve done work for BOOM! Studios’ Lumberjanes, illustrations and animations for German movie and TV, and their own wrestling fan-comic. Before working on The Last Session they’d heard of D&D but never had the chance to be part of a group. Now they’re playing as a swamp goblin named Brald in the company of an half-elf, a satyr, a human and a tabaxi and couldn’t be happier.

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.
