Cast and Crew

Andy Best
Dungeon Master / writer

Andy played D&D since he was 12 and he did all kinds of writing, performing and arts stuff, including a degree in it. Then he went off travelling to get more life experience before trying to make it – and forgot to come back for fifteen years. Likes Michael Moorcock and J.G. Ballard. Will write slasher movies on spec for food.

Elaine Chow

Elaine is a writer, gamer and woman about town. She hails from the land of yellow cabs and foldable pizza. She moved to China, where she’s now called home for more than a decade. When she was but a pre-teen, she came across and devoured entire shelves of Dragonlance books, but only realised she’d probably like playing the game they were referencing sometime last year. She enjoys stiff drinks, bad puns and overcomplicating the flavour text of fantasy world economies.

Billy Wolf

Billy does not like to keep a social media profile, except on Steam where he hangs out more than in the real world. DM Andy is writing this. Billy is awesome and likes hedgehogs. He’s from the USA which doesn’t narrow it down, I thought he sounded Californian, but I was way off. I’m British mind you. Since beginning the podcast, he’s been convinced to get on Twitter.

Robyn Hughes
Seyda Neen

Robyn has only been playing D&D for a year, but has been a fantasy geek since she discovered the Discworld point and click when she was nine. Her regular character is a druid based on The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, who is definitely the best Marvel superhero. When Robyn grows up she wants to be a sky pirate, but until then, she talks about comics, writes things and is terrible at Twitter.

Jay Grafft
Garek Quartzbeard

Jay comes from San Diego, California, a sunny city known for its beaches and great weather—so of course the majority of Jay’s life has consisted of staying indoors and playing video games. Though no stranger to scifi and fantasy, he just started playing D&D in 2015, around the same time he moved to Shanghai. His blood type is B+, and his shoe size is a US men’s 11.

He has a twitter, but there’s no reason to follow him as he has yet to make a single tweet.


Elsa Tang

Outside of the show Elsa is a rock star in Shanghai. She’s much more interested in being really really good at organizing things and load-ins. Seriously. Also, if she sees I’ve included her (rightly) in these credits, she will murder me.




Colin Hanna
Bjorn Djirkfjall

Retired: Colin is a writer and comedian from Ontario, Canada. Before Polymorph Self, he played Dungeons and Dragons for only nine months — a hobby he wishes he had picked up earlier in life. He’s 32, for God’s sake.

Adam Skuse
Onas Onidiri

Retired: Hailing from Devon UK, Adam is a writer and standup comedian currently residing in the USA.  He even won some kind of award, with one judge saying his performance “systematically empties the taboo cupboard.” Adam was introduced to gaming through HeroQuest and Fighting Fantasy game books, before developing a brief but heavy Warhammer 40k habit. This gave him his sole artistic skill of making rocky terrain out of polystyrene, which he still employs to impress girls.
