Hello! I’m Ashley Warren.
I’m a writer and educator based in Reno, Nevada. I produce bestselling content for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition and help aspiring writers bring their stories to life! I believe that the future of storytelling is immersive and collaborative, and I enjoy any opportunity to blend traditional literature with new and innovative mediums.
What I write is unapologetically romantic, atmospheric, dark, and fantastical. I'm inspired by travel, music, food, and language, and you can expect to find a little bit of all that in every story.
Before joining the tabletop roleplaying industry, I worked as a journalist, magazine editor, librarian, and college English teacher. I approach writing with a background in academia and a passionate heart for all things literary. Peruse my website to learn more about my various projects. Enjoy!
All of my bestselling titles for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition can be found on Dungeon Masters Guild. I am a member of Wizard of the Coast’s Guild Adept program in which I collaborate with some of the most talented creators in the RPG industry. These titles are distinguished with a golden ampersand.
Uncaged is a collection of myth- and folklore-retellings for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. I served as the founder and producer of the Uncaged project and am proud of the incredible community that has arisen around it. Volumes I and II are currently available, and Vols. III and IV are set for release later this year.
RPG Writer Workshop
The RPG Writer Workshop is designed to help new writers produce and publish their first tabletop roleplaying adventures. The Workshop community is more than 600 writers strong. I serve as the director and lead instructor.
Tales from the Mists
Tales from the Mists is a gothic horror show that airs on the Twitch.tv/DnD channel. Alongside some of my closest friends (all of whom are talented creators in the tabletop roleplaying industry), I play Constantina Avshalomov, a klezmer bard with a rebellious streak.
Astral TableTop is the easiest way to create, host, and play tabletop roleplaying games. I serve as the Marketing Director and work with an awesome team to usher in the future of storytelling!
