Ian is an editor by trade and a trader of tales. A lover of bourbon and all kind of ales. A roller of dice and a player of roles. A goof and a poof and slayer of trolls. The City of Angels is where he calls home, and he’s awaited in Valhalla all shiny and chrome. He’s on the tip of your tongue, at the edge of your sight. A shadow that slips silently into the night. He’s always been with us throughout human history. But why so mysterious? That too is a mystery!That’s all we know that rhymes about Ian. We also know that he loves pizza, giant mechs, and one of his biggest fears is that one day his skeleton will no longer want to live inside his body and try to escape. But that’ll never happen, right? Right?!

Erik Seeley

close
info:
Simply put? Erik loves to game. Starting back with Lode Runner and AD&D up to Mass Effect and 5e. Regardless of the genre, or the system, whether it’s telling stories or competing for bragging rights, (win or lose) it’s always a great time. Erik has formed many life-long friendships with nothing more than some dice and a pair of controllers, and was thrilled (and shocked!) with the opportunity to expand that circle to include the D&R family. Erik’s spent most of the past decade building and designing mobile games, and hopes one day to find a way to release a title designed for (not just by) himself.

    Hey Jason,
    I just recently started listening to the D and R podcast and I’m still very early on, somewhere around episode 23 I believe. I love the podcast and had a question for you! If you can remember that far back what was the music you used for the times that the groups were sitting and discussing the pressing matters at hand? I love the way it sounds in the situations they run into. Thanks!

    Hey, I’m a huge fan of D&R, i started listening to the podcasts a few months ago, and have since gone to listen to previous episodes. I even got my kids to listen to it and they are almost ready to start gaming as well :). They are 9&10 yrs old. Both theirs and mine favourite groups are 3&4, sorry groups 1&2 :) . I have a question though, my friends and i are planing on starting up a campaign again, but as it goes with growing up we don’t live in the same city anymore. so my question is what kind of a platform are you using to play? Thanks for the fantastical entertainment in Canada.

    Newish to the podcast, been listening for about 2 months now in binge sessions. I am UK based and play D&D with local friends. Its 2.30am here and I a sat listening to one of the episodes where you deal with the whiny SOB’s and I am laughing so hard. You guys have such a great rapport, its great to listen to and has really helped me embrace my inner nerd. Keep doing what you are doing, love to you all. Mimi. P.s. I don’t care what “Tad” says, your show is the opposite of sexist! 😀

    I have a few questions and comments for the Jason, and they won’t fit into a quick three or four line comment, so I’d like to send an email. But I haven’t been able to find an email address on this site. Am I just not finding it, or is there no email address for DandR?

    Since discovering the show I have done little else but listen to them. Such an amazing world you created and let your characters play in. You aren’t afraid to make them hurt in the world and as a listener I can feel that sorrow. But it’s also a lot of fun as well. Great job and I can’t wait to hear more.

    Sup everyone, I found your podcast recently and got hooked. I listened to all of group 1 up till the fight with that dragonborn, trying not to spoil for even newer fans than myself. I’ve decided to go back and listen to Group 2 next till this point, and then of course group 3. Thanks for the show and eventually I hope to catch up to now. Did you ever decide to start a twitch channel and if so what is the channel so I can subscribe?

    Hi, I started listening a few months ago and I’m not too far (group 1 has jumped forward 17 years and group 2 have escaped their room in the arena to find zombies) I can’t seem to find anything on past players. Just curious to put faces to the voice.
