Actor Matthew Lillard (@MatthewLillard) is in the house to talk about secret D&D stuff with the team, but also to chat with Greg Tito (@gregtito) about his longtime love of the game, and his journey through the creative business alongside that fandom. Hey, Dragon Talk will be releasing two episodes per week for the rest of 2017 because we are not very good with time travel. Lore You Should Know - Chris Perkins (@ChrisPerkinsDND) and Matt Sernett (@Sernett) get into the details of Candlekeep, where most of the knowledge of the Forgotten Realms is stored. Watch Dragon Talk recordings live on twitch.tv/dnd Mondays at 2pm PT!

Host Bios

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. You can find Greg on Twitter.

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.
