My PAX Unplugged panel schedule so far…

Not Having Racism in Your Campaign, Settings, or Table Friday 1:30 pm Leviathan Theatre

Tabletop is growing and expanding, and with it there’s an increased need for diversity at the table. Let’s talk frankly about why racism at the table shouldn’t be a thing you do as a GM or player. Also, let’s get real about racism in our settings and campaigns, talk about what we can do to stamp it out as much as possible in a land where elves, orcs, and dragons roam but racism seems to be a neverending boss battle.

PANELISTS

TTRPG_Dev_Panel_v0.6-finalFINAL Friday – 4:00 pm Crab God Theatre

When you’re working for yourself, be it as an indie creator or a freelancer, balancing life and work and hobby can be tenuous at best. Even more so when your work is your hobby and your hobby is work and work can swiftly become your whole life. This panel is a conversation about how we’ve tried to do it while staying healthy and happy.

Bringing Others to the Table Saturday – 10:30am Leviathan Theatre

RPGs are for everyone. Why wouldn’t they be? We want as many friends around the table as we can get! However, there are sometimes barriers – both obvious and subtle, physical and cultural – to people joining in on the fun. Join Take This and our panel of inclusivity activists as they discuss their barriers to play, as well as their practical tips on how to include diverse groups of people at your table.

PANELISTS

Megan A. Connell, PsyD, ABPP [Co-Founder, G33ks Like Us], Adam Davis [Co-Founder, Game to Grow], Tanya DePass [Founder, I Need Diverse Games], Hawke Robinson [Founder, RPG Therapeutics], Doctor B [Clinical Director, Take This], Carlos Luna [Streamer / Podcaster, The Dungeon Rats]

More Than Set Dressing: Handling Marginalization In Games  Sunday – 10:30am Leviathan Theatre

The year is 2018. Your tabletop group has become incredibly diverse and so too have their characters. Levels of privilege vary wildly among the party, sometimes creating tension. As the GM, you are charged with making this campaign feel real, to bring lived experiences to bear, and to make sure that it all stays fun, interesting, and safe. This panel will guide you and help light the path to making worlds as varied and wonder-filled as the one we live in. You just have to listen.PANELISTS
