Well howdy all you guys, gals, and nonbinary pals and welcome to Game Closet, the show where we talk to all sorts of great queer & LGBT+ tabletop creators. Joining me today is Christine Prevas. Christine produces a Monster Of The Week actual play as well as writing great articles on monsters and queerness. We chat about their work on vampire theory and monstrosity and I had an absolute blast. You should go check out their show now, it’s called The Unexplored Places and it’s phenomenal. Before we get into the episode I want to take a moment to plug Acadecon, the RPG Academy’s gaming convention in Dayton Ohio from November 9th to 11th. They just secured the location for this year and will be making announcements soon about how you can get tickets, keep your eyes on The RPG Academy dot com. And with that out of the way, let’s get to the show! I’d like to take a moment to talk to you about Lawful Good Gaming, an organization that seeks to pair tabletop roleplayers with charitable organizations. In 2017 they helped raise over 7 thousand dollars for organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, National Immigration Law Center, and the Ocean Conservatory. Going into 2018 their efforts are focused on queer & LGBT+ folks with donations going to groups like SAGE and The Trevor Project. Check out their facebook page at facebook dot com slash groups slash lawfulgoodgaming, or follow the link in the show notes. With all that out of the way, let’s get to the show!

Game Closet: interviewing LGBT+ people in tabletop gaming, creators, fans, anyone! Interviews would talk about personal experiences, games with (or without) LGBT+ representations or themes, or using queer content in gaming.

Well hello friends and enemies, and welcome to Game Closet, where we have a chat with all sorts of really cool queer and LGBT+ tabletop roleplayers who make games, podcasts, streams, you name it. With us this week is my friend VJ, who runs Hedged In: a Changeling The Lost story. Her show is quirky, magical, queer, and fantastical and I think you’re going to love it. In this episode we chat about how we find our inspirations, our goals for the future, and the joy of having the ability to make art that celebrates who we are as people. I talked last episode about Con Of The North in mid February where I’ll be running The Quiet Year, Questlandia, and Descent Into Midnight, but I’d like to take a moment to talk to you about Lawful Good Gaming, an organization that seeks to pair tabletop roleplayers with charitable organizations. In 2017 they helped raise over 7 thousand dollars for organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, National Immigration Law Center, and the Ocean Conservatory.

Hello guys gals and nonbinary pals, and welcome to another episode of Game Closet where we talk to all sorts of cool queer & LGBT+ tabletop rpg folks! In this episode I talk to Alana Cheski of Witches Ladder Games about the cool games you can get from them. We also talk a little bit about conflict mediation, embracing anxieties at the table, and which monster we’d most like to spend the night with. It’s a really great episode & I can’t wait for you to enjoy it. While I have your attention before the show I’d like to say that I’ll be running games at Con Of The North in Plymouth, Minnesota from February 16 through the 18th. I’m running Questlandia, The Quiet Year, and my personal favorite RPG, Masks. Speaking of Masks you should all head over to the RPG Academy podcast to hear an actual play of Masks that I was lucky enough to be a part of that was run by the game’s author. Thank you again to Michael, Caleb, Dakota, and Brendan for making that small dream come true. Well with all that pre-show out of the way, let’s get to the show!

This show is a proud member of the RPG Academy Network. A quick reminder that you can still get tickets to Acadecon, run by the RPG Academy in Dayton Ohio from November 10th through the 12th, by going to the acadecon dot com.

Hello friends and enemies and welcome to another episode of Game Closet! I’m your host, Taylor, and joining me today is tabletop streamer, Tesla, from The RPG Lab. We talk about all the various shows run on his stream, how to bring out tabletop’s participatory medium over a stream, and shared narrative spaces. My personal favorite is the Numenera show, I think that group has a lot of great chemistry, & I’m happy to see the game being run in more places! Links to Tesla’s work can be found in the show notes. As a reminder, if you’re free November 10-12th and can get to Dayton, Ohio, I highly suggest you check out Acadecon, run by the RPG Academy.
