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.
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.
Illustrator and barista by day, Rogue/Monk multiclass by night, Fraser is one of our recurring illustrators. With a year or so of roleplay experience he brings a fresh perspective to the hobby. His work is inspired by the character and world building that forms the backbone of his favourite fantasy and sci-fi works. Just breaking into the games industry, he’s one to watch.
