About Level Eater
By day, Level Eater presents an opportunity for gamers to play, encounter local geek and gamer culture, and discover new games.
By night, we play a ticketed, multi-table D&D campaign set in the fantastical city of Portsbridge—created just for us.
This year, despite heroism and bravery, villainy won out and the city of Portsbridge was dealt a painful but temporary defeat. All the heroes of the land have been weakened by a new evil enemy, approaching in Level Eater X: the Devourer. In 2020, we fight back against that foe.
To learn the lore of the land, listen to the adventures we’ve played on-air on Lumpen Radio over the years or read the accounts of the prologue adventures we played this year, which presaged Level Eater 9!

Players & DMs
Our VIP guests have come to participate at your VIP table. Dary Ross is a DM at one table, while Kenneth Hite and Tasha Robinson are there to join your adventuring party and help you fight evil and win the day.
Tasha Robinson is the Film & Television editor at The Verge, and a former film writer and editor with The Dissolve and The Onion’s A.V. Club. She is a co-host on The Next Picture Show, a movie-of-the-week podcast that pairs new releases with old classics to find out how similar films contextualize each other. She has a numbingly large collection of indie RPGs that she swears she’s going to run someday, if her current six campaigns ever wrap up.
Prolific game-master and player Darcy Ross is an ambassador for RPGs of all sorts, both in her community-building role at Monte Cook Games and in numerous adventures streaming online. As if that’s not enough, she’s also a scientist with an expertise in biology and a fondness for snails, because snails.
Chicago game designer and writer Kenneth Hite is a master of history and horror in games as proven through his work in Trail of Cthulhu, Night’s Black Agents, and Vampire: The Masquerade. He co-hosts the award-winning podcast Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff with writer and designer Robin D. Laws.
