Roleplaying games have become a larger part of my life in the last few years, so it’s a treat to talk about a play that has a roleplaying group as a plot element.

The Gifted Program runs in repertory with Freshwater Goes Back to High School at Nimbus Theatre from April 12th through 27th.

The foundation I mentioned in the podcast connected to Gary Gygax is actually the T├ękumel Foundation, which is dedicated to the legacy of M.A.R. Barker, a contemporary of Gygax. I had conflated these giants of roleplaying in my head. Don’t send me hate mail.

I talk more about the roleplaying session which occurred after the podcast at Minnesota Playlist.
