The initial response to my vague idea today was overwhelmingly positive, so I went ahead and did it. Introducing Here Be Dragons, a Discord server for fandom folks who love tabletop RPGs and want to talk about them, or even play with other fannish folks!
This is geared towards folks in transformative fandom - ie, creators or consumers of fanfic, fanart, and other creative fannish efforts - and is expected to heavily skew female and/or queer, but honestly, it’s for anyone who would be really uncomfortable talking gaming in other parts of the internet for a variety of reasons.
We have channels to talk about general gaming, characters, DMing, creative works, as well as a Looking For Group channel to help you find an online game!
I’m lightly moderating membership for the moment, mostly to make sure no trolls make their way in. But if you hit me up in my inbox/messages here on Tumblr, I’ll send you an invite! Otherwise, if you send me a message on Discord (violacea#7223) and tell me what your primary fannish identity is (your Tumblr name, Twitter name, something like that), that works too!
Feel free to signal boost, if you think you know anyone who’d be interested in joining! And if you’re a fannish gamer who wants more people to talk about RPGs with, just send me a message, and I’ll get you an invite!
