Our heroes & their adventures find themselves in "Refuge," an original new world created by  Dungeon Master, Jarrett Sullivan.  

We're fortunate to be able make our new 5E D&D campaign a YouTube & Podcast show.


To make Fables of Refuge a guaranty full time show; that means no more waiting tables, no more picking up strangers and driving them through horrible traffic, no more working for other people and spreading our selves too thin. We can focus on the content you have fallen in love with.

If you consider supporting us, you'll allow us to not just make the main D&D show on YouTube, but also allow us to make podcasts, behind the scenes, and someday short films!

We want to reward viewers right now & reward a long term community. We want to offer exclusive content, give you a chance to effect the story, and even hang out with us to share experiences & theories.


The costs of keeping up a show & growing it isn't easy, especially when it's completely funded by the director.  We love telling stories & want to be able to go all out and make the biggest story we possibly can!   




We do our best to keep the costs low, but it's not easy. It takes a lot of resources & tools to make a great D&D show. These are the expenses your contribution helps pay for:


Insurance, taxes, rent, office expenses, hard drives, internet, utilities.


Right now it's just 1 person doing everything behind camera; setting up lights, mics, cameras, recording, uploading, live mixing, and live switching, editing, & transcribing.


From character design to opening sequences to banner art. Making sure the characters and the world feel real is what matters.


Jarrett works tirelessly to create & expand the world, the NPCs, and the conflicts to the story. We want to do our best to reduce his distractions, the Players need to be present and in the moment when the cameras are rolling, and everyone needs food & coffee or else someone's going to become chaotic evil.


Custom to basic minis to custom made sets on the table or even the set that the table sits in, it all matters.  It's all apart of the experience & the story we are presenting to you.


You make it possible for our game to be a show and share it with the people who can't.

For the cost of a cup of coffee, we can reward you with exclusive videos & live streams & more campaigns that we don't share anywhere else, while also trying to making our channel Ad Free.

We've set goals to help guide us and you to what's possible with the kindness of the internet. Patreon can guaranty quality & frequency. The more you support us or share our Patreon, the more we are able to create.




A new episode every week, weekly live streams, weekly behind the scenes, Ad Free, podcasts, soundtracks, live events, & more campaigns and one-shots all in Refuge.
























Creator of the World of Refuge and will be shepherding & challenging the adventurers as we create a story together. My goal is for us to have fun and to tell a great story.  I've worked in film production for over ten years, from commercials to features, Corridor Digital to MST3K.  Growing up in the theatre and being a Nerd in the Nineties has me super excited to be helming Fables of Refuge.

When I was a kid in the South, the damage of the 80s Satanic Panic still held strong, so D&D was taboo.My friend had Hero Quest, but he never wanted to play it... it beckoned...I played an all summer game of Talisman, until my friend's mom cleared the board and threw the notes in the trash.Before Harry Potter, reading fantasy earned you raised eyebrows from adults and derision from your peers. But I knew, when I rolled my first D20 in the Star Wars D20 system that this was for me. The gateway drug of Star Wars lead to D&D 3.0 & 3.5, GURPs, D20 Modern, Rifts, and Pathfinder.



In charge of uploads, live streams, the audio and the cameras. I'm the kind of person who loves the technical & theory side of storytelling. My goal is to make sure the Party & DM have everything they need to make the best game they can play, while making sure you have the best show you can watch.

I've spent the last 11 years studying & working in film and advertisement by going to multiple art institutes, film academies, studying theater, radio, and photography. I’ve worked on the Star Citizen BTS team, I worked as the Corridor Crew Show-runner for about 5 years, and have worked on professional live events with companies like Amazon. I love D&D, I didn't always play, but I grew up visiting the Ren Faire with my Dad every weekend & every year. I even worked at the Minnesota Faire for a few years before graduating High School. I would say growing up on Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings films have defined my passions & and my aspirations as an artist & person.


I live in a world of imagination. Since I was younger I would go to the library to always check out “Rumplestiltskin.” My love for fantasy & art started young; my mom encouraged reading, always had music playing in the house, & was showing me classics like “The Godfather.” “Harry Potter” completely changed my perception on storytelling and the “Lord of the Rings” films changed everything.

They literally propelled me into my pursuit of acting. I’ve been in LA for 7 years, trained at multiple studios, currently at Margie Haber studios. Since living in LA I've done over a handful of short films, worked on TV Shows as "Awkward", "Pretty Little Liars" and "The Good Place", alongside Brea Grant in the feature film "Bad Apples", a voice over for a Sears Commercial, and I have written/produced two short films and created/produced a web series.

From making my own potions because I love “Charmed,” to hunting demons like Sam and Dean Winchester, to always thinking about how to survive Zombie Apocalypses and needing to experience the horror of horror films, Dungeons and Dragons helps me live out my fantasies game after game.


I’m the guy who sings in parking garages because of the great acoustics. I’m the guy who was slightly hoping Frodo wouldn’t get the Ring to Mordor, which I think describes my approach to characters: a person without flaws or darkness isn’t a compelling one. Flaws create uncertainty, uncertainty leads to tough choices, and tough choices make narratives engaging.

Speaking of engaging narratives, I started playing card games in elementary school with Yu-gi-oh!, and when I was a junior in high school, my friend introduced me to Magic: The Gathering. We played for hours on weekends and I still try to attend as many Friday Night Magic events as I can. While I was in high school I also did plays and musicals, and I continued to perform at Yale College, where I got a very practical degree in Sociology. I've studied at advanced levels at Anthony Meindl's Actor Workshop and the Upright Citizens Brigade.

I also box to maintain my physical fitness, and I play a little piano because I love music.


I'm a gamer and a voice actor. I grew up with a love of all games. My first introduction to computer/video games was Ernie's Big Splash on my dad's IBM PS/2 when I was 3 years old. From then on, I was hooked.

I would play any game (computer or otherwise) I could get my hands on. I even made up my own games. We had an old version of the board game Risk in our house but my parents didn't have the energy to teach me how to play properly, so I took all of my action figures and toys and made up my own elaborate war game, with written down rules and everything. Dice rolls helped determine who would win a battle. Little did I know I basically designed my own version of Dungeons & Dragons.

It was my masterpiece.I was peripherally aware of Dungeons & Dragons in elementary school, but due to residual societal fear from the "Satanic Panic" years, and school yard bullies making fun of the one kid I knew who played D&D, I never had the chance to play as a kid. My first experience with RPGs came in the form of Quest64 on my Nintedno 64 console when I was a teenager. From then on, I could not get enough of RPGs. This led to me eventually playing what ended up being some of my favorite games such as Dragon Quest VIII, Kingdom Hearts, and the Fallout and Legend of Zelda franchises.Gaming took a back seat for many years to my pursuit of acting.

After college, I moved to New York where I worked in theatre and film and television.I originated the role of Tatyana in Tatyana and the Cable Man in the Manhattan International Theatre Festival. I worked on TV shows such as Person of Interest, Smash, and Boardwalk Empire. I also worked on the films Birdman and The Wolf of Wall Street.During my tenure in NYC, my friends finally introduced me to Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 edition. Our first game was a one-shot to teach me the basics. It was set post-apocalypse with pre-generated characters. I played a human girl named Candle who had some sort of unknown psychic magic she was learning to use. Again, I was hooked.

Playing 3.5 eventually led to playing Pathfinder for many years.After moving to Los Angeles in 2013, my acting pursuits have been mainly voice-over. I can be heard as Emily in the game Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind by Big Fish Games, as the voice of Navi in Urban Zelda by Corridor Digital, and in several online and radio ads.I'm very excited to get back to playing D&D especially since 5th edition seems way more approachable than 3.5 or Pathfinder. I'm also excited to play a Monk after only ever playing magic users in my previous TTRPG experiences. Also, as a practitioner of Krav Maga, I look forward to punching stuff in game when I can't punch stuff in real life.


An avid reader, lover of fantasy, wielder of swords (for real though; longsword’s my favorite), and professional pretender!

Some things I've done include "The Arrow of Our Youth" with Danny Trejo, "Home Again" with Reese Witherspoon, & voicing a character in the video game "Hand of Fate 2."

I'm a classically trained actor with a BFA in acting. My love for traveling has expanded my artistic perspective; studied Shakespeare in London, sword work in Toronto, & currently improv in Los Angeles.

I've had a deep love of fantasy literature my whole life; I'd stay up late with a flashlight reading anything with swords, dragons, & magic. I also love tabletop games. My parents introduced me to classics like Risk and Clue- our family game nights with my parents and younger brother were the highlights of my week (even if I did get my ass handed to me now and again). This love of games continued into college, where my friends and I would get together late at night to play Settlers of Catan over a bottle of wine.

So for me, D&D is the perfect canvas to create an original character and work with other brilliant creative minds to tell endless adventures.
