Get to Know Us

Justin Handlin


Justin has been playing role playing games for many years. Some games he loves are; Rifts, AD&D, 3.5, 4e, 5e, Pathfinder and 13th Age. He loves the social aspect and spending time with other like minded people, and allowing his imagination flow like diarrhea after eating mexican food! He has a long way to go when it comes to rules, but constantly tries to learn and memorize as much of the game as he can...just to forget it later. His primary focus to bring as much fun to his players and himself as possible. He truly enjoys teaching newbies the ropes, even if he sometimes hangs them with it as a DM. 


Keep your blades sharp and spells prepared Heroes!


Co-Host and Artist

Brandon's been playing dnd since late 3.5E. It took a while to grasp, but of course, the more he played the better he got. He's only recently started DMing. He will be the first to admit he has some flaws, but can rely on Justin and others to help him along the way. He's been friends with Justin since they were 8 years old, and can't think of any greater honor than being on the show with together.
In his spare time he is an artist, running his own studio. He takes commissions, just reach out via social media or gmail. The proceeds go to helping us survive and making the show even bigger and better.
Blades sharp, spells prepared, LET'S ROCK!!!
