Joey is the DM/Creator/Editor of Adequately Advanced Magic.

Jeremiah Cushman

Willy Gu


Willy is playing D&D for the first time, and he hopes to explore the relationships between technology, superheroes, and power. He is also interested in creating a character and watching the character grow while being that character. He takes game notes on a computer and uses DnDBeyond to help him figure out his modifiers, so you may hear typing and clicking when he speaks. Willy plays Jack, a human fighter, in Adequately Advanced Magic.

Roy Arguelles

Mitchell Sommers


Mitchell is a long-time D&D player (though not as long as Jeremiah) and video game enthusiast. He enjoys failing to git gud at Dark Souls, ruining Joey’s (non-podcast) campaigns with his ridiculous rogue skill-checks, and creating fun characters to role play.
