joelastowski's Bio

Born at a very early age, I’ve been gaming since 1992 or so (with 1st & 2nd ed AD&D… GO THAC0!). I DM for the D&D Adventurers League (both Encounters and Expeditions) and run MTG events at at Modern Myths in Northampton, MA. I also am playing in a 5e D&D home game & a FF Star Wars home game.

If you’re looking for me on Facebook, you’ll find me here.

I’ve been a contributor on The Tome Show (episode 196 , about the D&D 4E Underdark Survival Guide and episode 228 , about converting adventures between editions), one of the best D&D podcasts out there. I have written occasionally for DungeonsMaster.com, too. Oh, and I’m a reasonably regular contributor on The Round Table (also via the Tome Show).

I also review roleplaying products (and also write about D&D and Doctor Who) at Acts of Geek

While I love playing in a good game, my true love is DMing. Something about the freedom to create a world in which my friends can experience the stories I write for them. My favorite D&D edition is 4th ed (though my home 4e game, sadly, has ended… what with people having jobs & kids and never being able to get together). I can enjoy 5e, but I think it’s a heavily flawed system with virtually no balance, and 13th Age is probably a better overall system than either 4e or 5e, though making me give up my 4e digital tools is a tough battle to fight.

In my spare time, I do fire performance, occasional stage magic, and teach writing classes.
