At the top of the show, Greg and Shelly take a look at this week’s D&D news, including Candlekeep Mysteries and Van Richten’s Guide To Ravenloft. After news, we are joined by D&D community manager Brandy Camel for another edition of Random Character Generator!

This week we randomly roll up Eludur, a Mark of Finding Half-Orc. Be sure to check out the stat sheet and let us know if you use Eludur in your games. We are joined by two very special guests this week, Kelly Lynne D’Angelo and Mark Hulmes, who both were contributing writers for Candlekeep Mysteries!

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.
