Joe Della Bella, Dungeon Master for the live D&D play podcast You Meet in a Tavern calls in to Bart Carroll (@bart_carroll) and Greg Tito (@gregtito). That’s right, this week Shelly has transformed into Bart – don’t ask how that works.  Joe tells us about how quickly his first character (a rogue) died, about his group’s adventure in Chult, and how awesome it is to have magical potions replaced with magical beer. Lore You Should Know - Matt Sernett (@Sernett) and Chris Perkins (@ChrisPerkinsDnD) tell us all about Sahuagin, including why we might be pronouncing it wrong, their odd history with the sea elves and the fact that they are most definitely not shark people.

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.

Bart Carroll

Bart Carroll has been a part of Wizards of the Coast since 2004, having worked with the Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons brands through the years. He’s also been a D&D player since 1980 (with fond memories of coloring the illustrations in his 1st Edition Monster Manual), and is thrilled that his current role includes the D&D website and Dragon+. His favorite monster is the brain in a jar. You can find Bart on Twitter.
