Mostly I fussed over the panel track again at Big Bad Con so that’s what you’re going to hear about.

He was head of security and occasional DJ. I was a bouncer, a barback and a bartender.… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #409 – Trying to Hold People Accountable

The “Handmaid’s Tale, Bitch Planet and the Politics of Women’s Bodies” panel went great. I just, after it was over I thought of so much more I wanted to say. The Blue Rose demos went great!!! I had one player in the first come back for the second, and converted someone to role-playing as their… Read More Geek Girl Con was great!!!!
