About the Guests:
Chef Mike Haracz
Chef Mike Haracz (pronounced like "Harris") has been cooking professionally for over 20 years, but has recently been working out of an office for the first time in his life. His free time includes things like playing guitar in metal bands, competition BBQ, poker, video games, being a goofball on social media, and especially D&D.
He currently plays in a 3.5e game which has been going on for a few years, and started DMing a 5e game over a year ago. He also played D&D in Jr. High and High School. Almost all of his D&D experience has been very homebrewed, but pulling from the greater D&D lore. He currently plays as a LG Half-Elf Paladin (7 levels in Paladin, 2 levels in Psychic Warrior, and 1 level in Grey Guard) in his 3.5e game. The framework for his 5e game started by buying a Euphoro’s Map Poster from Deven Rue, who has created a variety of stuff for Critical Role. Critical Role is one of his favorite podcasts, along with Hello From The Magic Tavern. His loving and non-D&D playing wife bought him his cast photo with the Critical Role folks at C2E2 last year.

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.
