Meet Masaki Yanagida, a Dungeon Master who, by a strange twist of fate, shares his birth year with D&D. Since 2003, he’s been knee-deep in the world of Dungeons & Dragons, translating its intricate lore. But that’s not all! He’s also been penning articles about other TTRPGs, painting miniatures, and having a blast playing sessions.

Back in sixth grade, he crafted his first character—Saki, a black-haired elf with a scar on her forehead. But alas, after the third session, he was promoted to a full-time Dungeon Master. Poor Saki has been stuck at level 1 ever since!
