Ben Paddon is one of the producers of The Game of Rassilon, and co-writes the campaign with Michael Nixon. Within the show, they serve as the series' Game Master, telling the story to the players, outlining the consequences of the players' actions, and performing as all of the non-player characters. They also voiced the War Doctor, the only incarnation of the Doctor to appear on the show and not be voiced by a special guest.
The podcast grew out of the live RPG play they would GM at the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles. The first live games occurred at the 2017 and 2018 events with mostly different casts - of the live shows, only Dan Peck and Michael Nixon went on to participate in the podcast, though Joseph Scrimshaw later went on to make a guest appearance as the previous Doctor.
As well as the podcast, Paddon is also the creator of the YouTube series PortsCenter, executive producer and writer for the scifi comedy webcomic and upcoming audio drama Jump Leads, and co-host of the podcasts The Life Toyetic with Ben and Molly and Out on her Fanny: A Podcast About The Nanny. They are also a standup comedian performing in the Los Angeles area.
