The D&R podcast is trying to raise money for artists and equipment.
This Kickstarter is really important to me, guys. It’s something my friends and I have been working on for awhile, and I’m going to tell you a bit more about it.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of Dungeons and Dragons- it’s a really awesome fantasy table-top game that even people who don’t like fantasy at least know of. My pal Jason is the DM, and he started with just a small group of friends and has really made this into something great. Our story is huge- so huge in fact that there are three separate adventuring groups who pass through each others stories, and it would take a full week of non-stop listening and then some to catch up (but it’s cool if you jump right into the middle).
This story has grown well over the years. Jason is extremely progressive and has done everything he can to make the show inclusive. He’s gone out of his way to find female players because he knows how hard it is out there for us. The story includes characters of all races and sexualities (granted in a fantasy world ‘all races’ extends to tieflings and dragons and stuff but also POC), and all of them are well-developed and fully-formed entities, not just side characters.
Now Jason is trying to make this his livelihood. He was hurt really badly at work and now has a back injury that keeps him from working further, and his old bosses are doing nothing to help him- including trying to take away his insurance and retirement funds. They are keeping unemployment from him through dishonest means, and in his state it’s really difficult to prove he’s injured (they refuse to even speak to his doctor).
More importantly, he’s a great guy and a magnificent storyteller.
Even if you could just donate a dollar, it would mean the world to me. We have some really awesome tiers, too, so check those out. Jason’s going to be writing some really great stuff (he already is) and trust me, you’re gonna want to read it.
Hey everybody. Sooo I just started as a cast member/player on a D&D podcast called Dungeons & Randomness and I’m super excited about it. Check out what my pal Brianne has to say about it here because she says it better than I ever could. More later, though, I promise.
