Dwarfed Special Edition

Between September 2008 and December 2011, the Know Direction Network periodically released episodes of an original work of audio fiction called Dwarfed. This fantasy satire began life as a spec script when I was hoping to work fulltime as a screenwriter. When my career plans changed and my podcast took off, I invited my friends, some of which will sound familiar to longtime listeners, to record the dialog for the characters in the script. Then, over the next few years, I recorded the narration and assembled Dwarfed into 9 individual episodes. Those episodes are no longer available on the website, but they’ve been collected for the first time here as the Dwarfed Special Edition.

What started as one gamer wanting to talk about his love of a game grew into a podcast network. Ryan founded what would become the Know Direction Podcast network with Jason "Jay" Dubsky, his friend and fellow 3.5 enthusiast. They and their game group moved on to Pathfinder, and the Know Direction podcast network was born. Now married and a father, Ryan continues to serve the network as the director of logistics and co-host of Upshift podcast, dedicated to the Essence20 RPG system he writes for and helped design.
