Game Closet 7 – Jess The Angriest Artist

Game Closet 7 – Jess The Angriest Artist

Hello Guys, Gals, and non-binary pals, and welcome to another installment of Game Closet, a podcast about queer & LGBT tabletop roleplaying games. We’re fresh off of GenCon & we’ve got a great interview today. I met Jess at Gen Con & we hit it off, so she’s coming on to talk about RPG art, queer coding, and visual signifiers in RPGs. Jess is super rad & we cover a whole bunch of cool stuff in an area of the hobby that doesn’t get talked about a whole lot. Another reminder about Acadecon, a small games convention run by The RPG Academy in Dayton, OH from November 11th through the 13th. I’m super pumped for it & you should be too! Tickets are still available. Well, that’s the intro, let’s get to the show!

Critical Theory 4 – Improvisational Storytelling with Quinn Wilson of Swallows of the South

Critical Theory 4 – Improvisational Storytelling with Quinn Wilson of Swallows of the South

Hello friends and welcome back to Game Closet. That’s right, we’re rebranding, and making Game Closet our full time focus. We’re no longer The Riverhouse Games Podcast even though we’ll still do our other segments, Critical Theory and From Scratch here & there. For example, this episode is a Critical Theory with Quinn Wilson of Swallows of the South, an Exalted third edition actual play. Quinn’s here to teach us about improvisational storytelling, narrative frames, and how Doctor Magnethands is a sophisticated improv exercise. Wanna hang out with me & Quinn in November? Check out Acadecon, a small games convention in Dayton Ohio run by the RPG Academy Network. While we jump into this episode, I’ll put a link in the show notes. Let’s get to it!
