D&D For Me with Jessica Marcrum
You might know this week’s guest from the acclaimed Uncaged Anthology, or her D&D module for feline bards and other folks too -- the College of Caterwauling, or from her very own game Nekomancy. I am talking, of course, about Jessica Marcrum. We talk about the challenges that come with creating a game, her love of wonder woman, and how the TTRPG community is changing for the better.
