  1. Great interview, really enjoyed it, it was both entertaining and informative.

    I’m a little surprised that some people still encounter negativity at the gaming table, especially at conventions. I go to 2-4 major conventions a year and our tables are composed of both male and female players of every race and everyone plays nice and gets along. Certainly no sexism or racism (it’s actually locally that some minor incidents happen). Certainly nothing like what was mentioned, which might have been more prevalent in the 1990s, but I just don’t see it at all today.

    I see women as being very open to gaming, I think they just need to be invited to the game and given a chance. My current group is 50/50 women, I’ve introduced 4 women to RPGs in the past 5 years, and I think the game is better for it. I can’t wait to introduce my daughters to RPGs!

    Thanks again!

  2. That was excellent. Bring those two back any time!
