Mike Bachmann – Thom Vidalis
Thom’s full name is Thom Vidalis. Played by Mike Bachmann Thom the Dragonborn is a half-assed demon-spawn warlord with a tenacious lust for battle, always ready to throw around his intimidate score at a moment’s notice. Of all the party members, he is the least interested in peaceful resolution, instead constantly searching for the most direct path to fights, drinks, and women, in that order. If he can get all at the same time, that would be the ultimate. He is the only known practitioner of “Tantric Death“, the process of getting as close to 1 HP as possible without going under. Thom’s anatomy is discussed more than any other party member’s. Thom is also revealed to be Quantum-sexual.
Thom loves to collect body parts and store them for some unknown future use.
Thom was a tad reluctant to stick with the party at first but they have provided him a steady stream of blood to satiate his appetite.
Jennifer Cheek – Aludra Wyrmsbane
Aludra’s full name is Aludra Wyrmsbane and she hails from a family of dwarven miners somewhere in the Razortooth Mountains. Aludra always wanted to be an adventurer but her parents forced her into the mining business. On an expedition with her brother Alandar Wyrmsbane they accidentaly broke into The Crypt of Sinu the Red. The entire expedition was slaughtered except for Aludra and she took this chance to run off and be the adventurer she always wanted to be. An undetermined amount of time after this she was picked up in Caer by Thokas and brought to Shadowspar Keep.
Michael DiMauro – The Dungeon Master
Michael was also drawn to Dungeons and Dragons, even as a small boy growing up in rural New Jersey. Michael and his best friend would pour over manuals filled with monsters and handbooks filled with players. Michael failed to start campaigns in all levels of life (high school, college and post-college semi-professional leagues). He finally stuck pay-dirt when he unearthed his old DnD books from his parents’ attic and tweeted a photo of them.
“Hey, let’s play some DnD, and record it as a podcast” twitter said to him.
“Sure” he responded.

Nika Howard – Jaela
Jaela is a Deva Avenger that joins the party in Pelor’s Hope in Episode 81 – The Live Show. She is from a city called Yangahr in the far east, not even on the same continent that we know. She is an Adherant of Erathis, sent to the party after they fucked up real hard and accidentally caused the demon apocalypse.
As a Deva, Jaela has regenerated countless times, remembering parts of each past life every time she is reborn. Her current body is only about 3 weeks old when we meet her.
Tim Lanning – Lord Titus Harper
Harper’s backstory is often hinted at in angsty brooding but very little is known. We know that his father is Lord Anthony Harper and that he is from Pelor’s Hope. Harper has mentioned he has a mother so it’s totally canon forever now. Harper is also quick to remind everybody that he is known as “The Blazing Hand” but then refuses to explain what that means. Harper tried to escape his oft mentioned dark past by becoming a simple boatman.
