Top News Stories
TTRPGs for Trans Rights in Texas Bundle!: “In response to Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Attorney General Office’s transphobic declarations, we have brought together all of these games in support of trans rights.
Trans children are extremely vulnerable, and the actions of the Texas government will put them and any supportive loved ones in danger. Providing funds to trans advocacy groups and support networks helps keep trans folx afloat in Texas.
The Bundle has smashed through several goals after only 2+ days, having raised more than $150,000 as of this writing; more precise numbers kept becoming outdated as we typed them. With 493 items from 300 creators, the Bundle offers ~$2,823 of content for only $5, a staggering deal. You can find a fair number of games we’ve covered in the Bundle (along with several Zine Month entries hot out of the funding process), plus something from one of us.
Discussion of the Week
