Brandy Camel

Brandy Camel is a veteran community manager who's recently started work at Wizards of the Coast, leading community for the Dungeons & Dragons franchise. After spending 6.5 years at Blizzard Entertainment on the Diablo franchise, she's returning to her roots in tabletop.

From learning to read by watching her father play TSR Classics like Eye of the Beholder and Pools of Radiance to spending years DMing and coordinating in Living Greyhawk, she has a long, storied history with pencil and paper. She's looking forward to applying her skills to support a community she's long been a part of and hold close to her heart! She DMs, paints, writes, and streams in her spare time, when she can find it.

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.
