Here’s a gorgeous object that arrived in the mail — the new D&D manual, Journeys through the Radiant Citadel, written by a host of POC writers. Classic D&D has a history of…challenges, let’s say?…in its depictions of people of color.
This project, helmed by Ajit George, aims to give D&D players some wonderful diverse worlds to play in.
I worked on the project for a little bit in the early stages, but had to step away due to lack of time. But I’m thrilled for all the writers, including Mimi Mondal (!), and I hope this book engenders a great love of RPGs in future generations.
They sent me three copies — I’m keeping one for my family, have already given one away to one of my Serendib staff who is excited to play it, and I’d like to give away the third on this thread.
If you’d like a free copy of the new Radiant Citadels D&D book, please drop a comment in this thread — I’ll pick someone randomly after 24 hours, and ship it to you (anywhere in the world, my treat). If you want to add in your experience with D&D so far, I’d love to hear it!
(Me, I think I mostly played the sexy thief when I was 13 or so, playing in my parents’ basement? Robert Garbowski, were you one of the people I played with? I can’t remember if it was neighborhood kids or schoolfriends like Dan Foster and David Taylor… Whoever it was, we had a lot of fun! These days, of course, I would be a paladin, tilting furiously at windmills…)
