Kate Welch sits in as co-host with Shelly this week and discusses her very first experience being a Dungeon Master! Later, we debut a new segment, How To DM! Shelly Mazzanoble interviews D&D game designer, as well...
Josh Perault (@XiroxisTheBeard) and Jon “Bucky” Buckmaster (@bucky_masters) from the Taking Initiative podcast call in from the far away demiplane of New York city to talk to Shelly Mazzanoble (@shellymoo) and Greg Tito (@gregtito). We learn about Josh and Bucky growing up together playing D&D, why Bucky can’t ever play Josh’s character, the harsh D&D judgement of Josh’s dad, and the creation of the Podcasts of Annihilation. Sage Advice - Jeremy Crawford (@JeremyECrawford) gives all the details on conditions, including what condition almost every character experiences every session, the differences between grappled and restrained, and the importance of concise rules text.

Interview with Josh and Bucky from Taking Initiative (@TI_Pod)
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 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.
