This week’s required reading will cover articles that may not be so recent, but led to the founding of PanopLit.
- Monica Valentinelli is a giant of the industry, and spoke for many of us when she published “We Have Always Been Here, Mortherfucker” with the SpecFic publisher Uncanny.
- Dungeons & Dragons latest editions included guidance on defining your character’s gender identity and how that fit within the setting. This was covered by The Independent, as well as Kotaku, where game designer Jeremy Crawford is quoted as saying “I wasn’t about to have this book go out and not acknowledge that people like me exist.”
- A throwback, but this post from Improved Initiative goes above and beyond by providing some actionable suggestions on taking your characters farther. With “The 5 RPG Characters We Should Stop Playing“, Neal Litherland breaks down archetypes we see players picking up again and again, for better or, more often, worse.
