About

Dice Paper Role is a weekly Dungeons & Dragons podcast where five friends play Fifth Edition for the first time. If you like puns and silly jokes then you’ll enjoy the shenanigans of the Tight Five as they adventure through the realm.

Who are we?

After a year of playing D&D together as a group we decided to try a new edition and to have a crack at podcasting our games. As a bunch of (mostly) creative types from Melbourne, Australia we decided to produce everything ourselves.

The result: Dice Paper Role.

Yes, but who are we?

A’Lan A'aron Aeon

Aasimar Sorcerer of Helm

Greg Pickering (Co-DM)

Greg has been playing D&D for 20 years and is an evil bastard who loves to torment and torture his
players when he is the DM. He is an average player and often cheats to make up for his failings.
Greg has a deep abiding love for all things fantasy, and wishes capes were still acceptable casual
wear.

Brakai

Goliath Barbarian

Emil Freund

Emil is a performing artist who can’t believe it took him until 2016 to start playing D&D. What he lacks in game nous he makes up for with jokes. In combat, as in comedy, his philosophy is death by a thousand cuts, quantity over quality. Wear them down until they’re clutching their sides, incapacitated… or walking away having lost interest.

Oriki’s Song

Tiefling Bard

Jack Kirby Crosby

Jack Kirby Crosby insists on being named in full to better optimise his SEO (we haven't had the heart to tell him that's unnecessary whilst speaking). Jack Kirby Crosby spends most of his time drawing, 3D modelling, designing and critiquing video games, or getting caught up in really intense political conversations on the web (#Bernie2020). In D&D, Jack Kirby Crosby’s goal is to throw as many curve balls at the DM as possible, because you can’t do that to computers… yet!

Snatch

Halfing Rogue

Ben Clements (Co-DM)

A long-time fan of the game, Ben is one of those players who kind of wishes D&D was real, and would much prefer to live in a fantasy world instead of reality. Except for the fact that healthcare is probably pretty mediocre, plus, if adventuring doesn’t kill you some kind of plague probably will. He actually quite enjoys most aspects of living in the modern world, and instead chooses to escape it by being an actor. It’s a solid compromise.

The Dungeon Master

Human Storyteller

Daniel Last (Co-DM)

Dan has been a self-proclaimed geek since before he can remember proclaiming it. After only one year of playing his first campaign he thought he'd throw himself into the DMs chair for the first time... and hey why not record it as well? He loves making silly voices and tries to pass it off like he knows the rules but in reality has no idea and is flying by the seat of his pants. “Woooo! Der n Der!”
