This is where you will find information about regular cast members, reporters, reviewers, and hosts of the show. 


Jeff Greiner (the Tome Founder, Behind the DM Screen, Reviews, Advice, and Book Club Host) 

Your loyal and dedicated Tome Founder is Jeff Greiner. Jeff is  a father of two, lives, teaches middle school, and is getting a PhD in Raleigh, NC. He has been playing D&D since he was 8. In his free time Jeff DMs a game every other weekend, works on this podcast, reads (novels, game books, and comics), and listens to a metric ton of podcasts.

When it comes to D&D hosts...he's the original. He's sometimes on Twitter @squach. 


Tracy Hurley (The Tome Reviews, Advice, and Book Club Co-Host)


Tracy is the brains behind the operation. She joined the show in 2011 but has been an active member of the D&D community for a few years before that. She started playing D&D in 2009 which is also when she started writing her popular gaming blog, Sarah Darkmagic.

When it comes to D&D hosts, she's the smart one. Find her on Twitter @SarahDarkmagic.

Samuel Dillon (The Tome Editor and Behind the DM Screen Host)


Samuel Dillon is the wisest of the Tome's staff, having helped deliver dirt when it was first born (this also means he's been playing tabletop games for nearly 30 years, making him a higher level geek than the other two members of the staff combined). He is the driving force behind the RPG Musings blog, which is made out of pure awesome. He is also active at the RPG Geek site as LordDillon.

When it comes to D&D staff, he's the talented one. Find him on Twitter @DMSamuel.

Jeff Wikstrom (Co-host of Appendix N)

Avid gamer Jeff Wikstrom (@jeff_wik on twitter) has been expounding on his opinions about the history of fantasy since the disco age but it was only when he became co-host of the Appendix N Podcast that he acquired any kind of audience.  Now it's gone to his head and we're all worried about him.  His barely coherent rants, including hundreds of thousands of words about King Arthur, are archived at
