About the Guest:

Cicero Holmes

Cicero Holmes has been playing video games for his entire life and for the past 6 years was the co-host and co-founder of the Spawn On Me video game podcast where they focused on diversity and inclusion in the video game space. His friend, Tanya Depass, introduced him to D&D via Rivals of Waterdeep in 2018 and he has jumped, head first, into the world of tabletop RP gaming! Along with playing Perrin Underbough on Rivals of Waterdeep, Cicero has been a guest on several other actual play RPGs and is always looking for more! An aspiring voiceover artist, you can find Cicero advocating for his current favorite spacefaring show, Star Trek: Discovery, on the podcast Discovery Debrief, as well as ranting about how great the Yankees are and how terrible his Knicks are on twitter at the handle: StubbyStan!

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.
