Hello friends and enemies and welcome to another episode of Game Closet, where we explore all the amazing queer & LGBT+ tabletop RPG folks out there. We’ve got a great guest this week, Nicole from the Misfits of Space podcast. We talk about kissing aliens, worldbuilding, and queer science fiction. While we were recording, both Nicole and myself had colds. I tried real hard to edit out the majority of the sniffles but there’s some in there that were hard to take out. One quick note that if you’ll be at Gen Con, Acadecon, or Metatopia, I’ll be running Descent Into Midnight, so check out the details by visiting Descent Into Midnight dot com. Without further adieu, let’s get to the show!

Game Closet: interviewing LGBT+ people in tabletop gaming, creators, fans, anyone! Interviews 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 Game Closet? Check out our Contact Us page! You can also check out a curated collection of queer/LGBT+ roleplaying resources.

Bonus Actual Play – Masks w/ Roll 4 Change

Hello friends! I’ll keep this bumper short cuz this is a nice little bonus episode for y’all. I hope you can hear all the birds outside my window cuz it’s finally springtime & they’re happy as hell about that. What you’re about to listen to is a recording of a game of Masks: A New Generation that I ran for Roll 4 Change, an organization that runs livestreams of rpgs to benefit charity. Masks is my absolute favorite game right now, and this might be the best session I’ve ever ran for it so I wanted to get it out to you, the listener, to enjoy as well. I want to say thank you to everyone involved in making this happen, not only was it just a phenomenal game, but we helped raise three hundred and fifty five dollars for Children’s Defense Fund through viewer donations. While you’re listening to this episode, check out CDF and check out Roll 4 Change for future livestreams just like this one. Let’s get to it!
