About

Dungeons on a Dime (DOAD) was founded in December of 2018 as an answer to many different needs in the tabletop roleplaying community. Over the past three years, we've worked with over 20 artists, published 10 zines, and paid fair union rates to everyone we've worked with. We've supported local businesses, gone to conventions, and grown a helluva lot.

Brian Tyrrell

With over 15 years of roleplaying experience under his belt, Brian is the founder of Dungeons on a Dime. He's also the writer, graphic designer, project manager, secretary, accountant, live-stage game master, stall holder and sometimes illustrator of the magazine too (it's a one-man-band sort of scenario).
As a gay man with a full diagnosis of autism, storytelling games were the tool that allowed him to develop his social skills, as well as his identity, in a safe space. Throughout his many years of being a game master he has never not had a new player at his table, and takes a special joy from introducing anyone and everyone to the hobby.

DOAD's Artists
