Meet The Cast
Our Dungeon Master, Devan!
Class: Arms of Thunder
Campaign 3 was a roller coaster! From Ghost Trains to Fire Giants. From Train Robberies to Ancient Contests. From Hidden Elf Villages/Kingdoms to tyrant-ran towns. From Orc Gangs to Hidden Cultures. I threw whatever I like about fantasy and adventure into my campaign.
It was my first go at a large scale campaign. As far as the rules meter goes, I hovered in the "meh" area. It isn't that I don't think the rules of DND are important, it was that I was inexperienced. We affectionately called C3 the "Rise of 6e". I did get a good grip on rules as we continued and you might hear me moving through it a little faster as the season goes on.
I enjoyed getting to Worldbuild and work this story. I want to give a HUGE shoutout to one of our dear Patrons, InvertedZebra. I leaned into him a TON as a source of inspiration and clarity. He is one of the best and most creative storytellers I know and the success of C3 is due in a large part to him.
Devan currently lives in Savannah, GA with his family. He has been proudly married for 10 years. When he isn't playing DnD, he is working for the Army full-time or spending time with his family. He loves to rage out to Overwatch and built extra content for the podcast. He started playing Dnd just about a year before the podcast launched in 2017.
Lucien Bright/ Fuum, played by Scott Shainsaw
Class: Cleric/ Monk
Lucien is a timid and naïve young cleric who seeks to bring the light of Nova to every dark corner of the world, but what spurs his zeal? Is it truly love of the light, or is it a gripping fear of the dark? Later in the campaign you'll meet Fuum, an example of what remains when a light burns too brightly.
Scott Shain aka "Shainsaw" is a man who loves games, stories, and words. You can imagine how this led him to DnD like a moth to a flame. Shain has been playing DnD for over a decade starting back with 3.5 and eventually converting to 5e. He has ran a myriad of TTRPGs for the Lawful Stupid side project Uncle Shainsaw’s Tabletop Workshop and has a large stack of more games he eagerly awaits running. He is happily married to his Wife of two years Kayla “The Fairer Shainsaw” Shain and together they live with their adorable pupper princess Gadget, where they mostly sit around and wait for people to invite them over to play board games. Scott’s primary beliefs are that the unrelenting constancy of love and hope can rescue and restore you from any scope and that folks that play DnD have an innate need to be heroes, and that need does not go away when they step away from the table.
Ms. B "Beatrice" Haven, played by ABon
Race: Twilight Elf
Ms. B is an uptight and proper lady who isn't afraid to stab someone to protect what she holds near and dear to her heart. She's a caring mother of many, even party members she eventually adopts as her own. She sits as a voice of reason, but there is still a lot of the world she is unaware of.
Alex otherwise known as Abon, has now quite a bit of experience in D&D but she’s still learning the rules... oops. She spends her time with her butter half and husband, Zack aka Gingerloaf, playing video games, teaching, drawing, arting, sleeping… procrastinating… HAH! She enjoys her time with her little family of two dogs, Micro and Chip, as well as their clowder consisting of Adrien, Keket, and Tangerine. Outside of doing art for the podcast, Abon works as a self employed artist. She couldn’t be more excited to be working (and playfully threatening to quit) alongside the awesome crew and family of Lawful stupid.
If you would like to support the illustrious Abon you can do so by emailing her or checking out her Ko-fi for a commission (though we keep her busy) or you could simply tip her on her ko-fi account!
William Deher, played by DeWayne
DeWayne has been playing DND for a little over three years at this point and it serves as a constant outlet for his narrative addiction. Worldbuilder gone awry he has fallen in love with the game. He has a beautiful wife and three beautiful children that he adores very much.
When he is not playing DND he is spending time with his family, writing, world building, or playing video games. His trade profession is Information Technology and he enjoys automation in all forms. You'll often hear him speak of efficiencies in his life. DeWayne often says he is the accumulation of the five people around him, and his people are freaking sweet.
Audiomancy, created by Ging
Zack, most often called Ging in and out of podcast by the crew, has kindof recently been dragged into the world of Dungeons and Dragons by his lovely wife, Abon. When he’s not working… he is still working! He is very passionate about creating video games and programming in and out of work, as well as casting audiomancy. When he does have time, he spends it with Abon and their furry children, Micro, Chip, Adrien, Keket, and Tangerine, or he is playing video games with his friends online. Ging couldn’t be more thankful for the Lawful Stupid crew since they have been the greatest of friends.
