Diverse Storytelling in Tabletop Games


In this episode, Jay Anneli, lore consultant for Wizards of the Coast and author of Magic: The Gathering: Legends: A Visual History, Erin Roberts, speculative fiction and tabletop game writer, and Jezze Torres, make-up artist and Dungeons and Dragons player, discuss the triumphs and the challenges of making the world of tabletop role-playing games (TTRPG) a more inclusive community, both in game and out. From game development to the dynamics of the table itself, they discuss the multitude of ways games can honor its history, remain fun and exciting, and evolve into something that can address the real-life concerns of the past, the present and the future.
