This show is a proud member of the RPG Academy Network. Keep en eye out on March 14th for the launch of the kickstarter for Acadecon in Dayton Ohio where you can see me & other RPG Academy folks & play a weekend full of games.

Well howdy all you guys, gals, and nonbinary pals, and welcome to another episode of Game Closet, the show where we chat with all sorts of awesome queer & LGBT+ creators in the tabletop RPG world. With us today is my friend Nora, here to talk about designing small games, her overwhelmingly cute Star Trek Discovery podcast she makes with her partner, and how we can be aware of storytelling tropes in our tabletop games. I’ve got all of Nora’s links in the show notes. Before we get into it, please consider backing this show on Patreon at Patreon dot com slash Riverhouse Games. And with that taken care of, let’s dive right in!

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. Are you queer or LGBT+ and want to be featured on The Game Closet? Check out our Contact Us page! You can also check out the articles mentioned in the show by checking out our collection of queer/LGBT+ roleplaying resources.
