Dungeon Master Bios
Ginny Di is a Denver-based tabletop gaming YouTuber, cosplayer, and singer who loves telling stories, bringing characters to life, and wearing the largest elf ears she can find. She has written for Steamforged Games, The Potbellied Kobold, Roll For Combat, and her own publications, and played in D&D's official Spelljammer show, "Legends of the Multiverse." On YouTube, she talks tabletop gaming etiquette and advice and explores character building in games with music, skits, and in-character roleplay videos that range from dramatic to comedic and invite the viewer to play along through the screen.
Aoife is a content creator, writer, host, streamer and video game expert, working with the likes of Eurogamer, BAFTA and the BBC to champion gaming to anyone who'll listen. With experience in everything from TV to live events and stage shows, she can run a red carpet just as easily as she can stream in full-on cosy gremlin mode. When she swaps the digital realm for pen and paper, she's created and run bespoke campaigns for Wizards of the Coast, DMing live on the official D&D Twitch channel and taking part in D&D Celebration as a player. She also plays Etain in The Break Quest Club, Eurogamer's fledgling D&D campaign.
Aoife brings an element of playfulness to the table, prioritising collaborative storytelling and empowering her players over adherence to the rules. Fun, creativity and character-driven moments are front and centre. She also specialises in guiding and encouraging first-time players - if she can make a group of UK grime artists fall in love with the game, she can win anyone over. Aoife favours theatre-of-the-mind, but isn't opposed to an exciting set piece. Her past campaigns have included everything from foiled magical kidnappings, Indiana Jones-style temple heists and terrifying time trials on a fast sinking ship.
Gamer, game-designer and actor with a special passion for D&D and the collaborative and emergent storytelling it so wonderfully creates. Tables are never short on laughs, even if only to alleviate the tense and doubtlessly very dangerous situations your party might find themselves in... again and again.
Thor runs private games with many illustrious Hollywood gamers incl. Joe Manganiello, Vince Vaughn, Tom Morello, Craig Mazin, Dan Weiss, Taran Killam, Will Wheaton, Kyle Newman, and many more.
With 25 years of DM-ing and 15 years of acting under his belt (Rebel Moon, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Reign, The Outpost ++), you can be sure your stories together will be memorable. High Fantasy standard D&D feel, with Northern European influences. Fun, gritty, and with unclear lines of right and wrong, good and evil.

Additionally, the ability to create stories and develop gaming mechanics has expanded their range of interactions of performing and writing with organizations like Modiphius, Jasper's Game Day, and Wizards of the Coast.
