An avid RPG player, experienced in a wide variety of systems, Dan is a strong addition to the ENPC family. He got hooked on tabletop gaming after running an absolutely disastrous 4e D&D campaign in college. Since then Dan has been an active member of his gaming community, and can be found taking part in many different tabletop events in Chicago honing his skills.
When he's not busy co-creating the ENPC Podcast and editing its content, Tommy manages the largest game store in Chicago. It's safe to say he's pretty passionate about gaming. With most of his RPG experience revolving around running and playing Shadowrun, Tommy is excited to dive into other systems. On an indefinite leave of absence from acting, he may have helped make this podcast simply so he could dabble in performance and voice work again.
One bad mamma jamma, Ryan Covert is one part deputy sheriff, two parts table top NERD. A long standing member of Reddit's Shadowrun community, Essential NPCs is Covert's first foray into the world of D&D. Gaming ranks among Covert's great loves, right up there with cats, beer, and firearms.
Too cool to live in Chicago, Covert is the only current cast member playing remotely.
Sean Foer is a Chicago-based actor, comedian and tabletop gaming enthusiast. While he normally abides behind the GM screen, he's more than happy to give up omnipotence and roll up a character every once in a while. His usual games are Pathfinder, FATE and Fiasco, so Essential NPCs is shaking things up for him. His favorite color is orange.
A writer first, DM second, and linguist third, Addie spends most of her days with words. Extensively experienced with 5th Edition D&D, she was a natural pick for ENPCs inaugural DM. A strong supporter of TPKs, Addie's DM style is to never pull punches and really challenge her players. She also serves valiantly as ENPCs executive producer. Without her, none of this would be possible.
Seth Lilley is a Chicago-based actor. He can act the spots off a leopard. His magical microphone voice comes from his years as "DJ Squid" at a college radio station (prestigious!). He enjoys a good RPG from time to time, even though he almost always has zero idea what he's doing. What he lacks in rule comprehension, he more than makes up for with his enthusiastic dice rolling.
A Chicago-based comedian and writer, Roman is also the Editor in Chief of the Chicago-specific parody news site Under the L. Needless to say, he has a fine tuned sense of humor! Roman loves board games, soccer, wrestling, and the Fast & the Furious franchise. He is also single... Very, painfully single.

Nick comes from the world of board games, D&D, and Magic: The Gathering (where he's an active Level 2 Judge).

Used to being behind the scenes, Bri got her creative start by lighting those onstage. Her passion for roleplaying stems from the angsty RPGS she wrote online with high school friends, and one 3E D&D campaign played with her super cool sister. Then the dark ages of college began and that way was lost to her until she met the illustrious folk of ENPCs. Her interests are varied and she’ll play pretty much any system as long as she can torture her character.
