I don’t recall if you already covered this topic in the past, but I think it could be interesting to discuss Gaming Communities.
I’d be interested in your thoughts both on the role that community plays for us gamers, as well as specific communities.
For me, this is one of my favorite RPG related meta activities. This podcast and the associated community is a big part of that. But I’m also in various other Discord servers, which have largely taken the place of G+ for me. Both general gaming related communities (RPG Talk is a favorite of mine, and I believe @Harrigan is a regular there as well ), as well as game specific communities.
DCC is a good example: This has quickly become my favorite system. But while the system itself is no doubt good, I think the reason lies much more in the fantastic community around it. Goodman Games has done a great job fostering this by sponsoring the roadcrew, for example. And there’s a huge creative energy in this community, resulting in things like the Gongfarmer’s Almanac. I see great discussion and collaboration on their Discord server as well.
Anyway - another one for the hopper!
