Three weeks ago the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons came out. D&D is the iconic tabletop role playing game, so a new edition is a big deal. It’s one of the few times that the small, insular pen and paper community gets noticed by the rest of the world. Many game websites have talked about it, notably Polygon’s piece on gender inclusive language. Yet at the same time as D&D tries to appeal to those outside the gender binary, it has been driving them away by employing two of the most toxic personalities in tabletop gaming.

Summer vacation is almost over for Dungeon Elementary. In the meantime, here’s a good article.

Can anyone help?

I’ve been looking to find a RP partner lately, but for the life of me I haven’t been jivving with the rpers I’ve been hanging around, whether it be scheduling or for other reasons. 

For those directly interested: Preferably over skype. Original characters, but I’m A-OK with fandom OCs. I’ve mainly rp’d in various Pokemon-based roleplays… but I’m a fan of all sorts of things, so there’s that. Action, romance, adventure, fantasy, and then sci-fi’d be fun to try. Any pairing I’m good with. I crave literacy. Paragraph-length RP preferred, but flexibility is a plus. Looking sorta for a long-term rp partner, I guess, but if you don’t like my style nothing’s keeping you. Best times go from 9 pm-ish to 1 am-ish -8 GMT (Pacific coast time, a.k.a. American western seaboard). 

Please, don’t be afraid to inquire. ;u;

For those not directly interested, do you know of a directory or something where I might be able to find a rp partner? This has kinda been bugging me for a while but I can’t seem to find one…

Obligatory question mark?
