Dungeon Master / Dungeon Daddy

Austin Townend | @austintownend

Seriously, this guy? Yeah... I know; this Dungeon Daddy of a Game Master is one stellar storyteller. From his upbringing in music and traveling with bands to his career in strategic marketing and pursuit of creative production, Austin Townend is one big turf muffin. He found his passion for D&D with a love for acting and the art of improv. That grew to finding a creative outlet in the world of Dungeons and Dragons and many other avenues of nerd culture. He has found his home with The Bottlecrap Brigade crew and loves being the frontrunner of story development.

Austin Von Johnson | @4ustinVon

Austin Von Johnson is an actor, comedian, and entertainer who is also nerdy af! He's an avid player of Magic: The Gathering, watcher of anime, and gamer of the PC variety. The Bottlecap Brigade is his first venture into the world of DND and he doesn't understand why it took so long! He now loves it more than tacos.

Taylor Hawker | @taylor.hawker

This is Taylor’s first-ever DND campaign and he couldn’t be “more stoked” (his words) to embark on this adventure with the ragtag group of friends. This is not even close to his first endeavor in the creative realm, he studied Theater and Music at The College of Idaho and has pursued many opportunities on stage and in film here in the Treasure Valley. He has a deep-rooted love for craft beer and baseball, and always has a wonderful assortment of new suds to drink every session. He dislikes bananas and bacon, and his celebrity crush is Gwen Stefani.

Joe Fritz | @joxefritz

Joe didn’t merely adopt nerdom, he was born in it, molded by it. A relentless imagination for fantastical worlds kept him busy drawing, creating stories, and acting like a total spaz as early as he can remember. Around the age of eleven, he and some friends discovered the ultimate creative outlet that is D&D (one of them being our very own Dungeon Daddy). The older siblings of his friends kindly guided this young crew into the Sword Coast. This natural class clown enjoyed diving into the more serious improv adventures of D&D. He didn’t play traditional D&D too much, but rather quickly moved into the Star Wars universe. After completing a long Star Wars campaign, he helped create a Redwall homebrew with a few of his best friends from school with a campaign lasting almost four years. Skip forward fifteen years. Our DM made a Facebook post looking for D&D players for a new campaign and Joe took the bait to reconnect with an old friend and play the game he once loved. The creative itch never left but rather took other forms (sports, dance, drawing,videography, photography, writing). This new group is where he met Sam (Ang) and became re-obsessed with his forgotten love. Having now settled into this wholesome crew of hoodrat friends doing hoodrat things, Joe is beyond excited to break out of his shell, explore the world of Magna, and these new and old friendships.

Miranda is a shapeshifting, spell casting, battle raging she-beast here to party, give good hugs, and play some motherfucking D&D.

Sam Gates | @prefunkforhell

Sam Gates is definitely a character both in DND and in real life. He found his love for all things nerdy at the age of two while bumbling about on Super Mario for the NES. That childhood wonder has sprouted to a passion for creative endeavors. Ang is his second character in the Bottlecap saga, his first one (an Elven Warlock), made the mistake of drinking some demon blood. 
Dungeons & Dragons opened his eyes to an amazing world of fantasy exploration. He has been a DM for several years and is happy to take a bit of a break as a PC/Murderhobo for once.
