This is a community submitted press release.

Dicey Banter is a new TTRPG Talkshow hosted by Valiant Dorian as he chats with all the makers and shakers within the tabletop space while having fun & meaningful conversations! Descended from a previous interview format: Designer Spotlight, where Valiant Dorian interviewed indie TTRPG designers to uplift their work. He wanted to continue spotlighting and uplifting TTRPG Creators but expanding beyond game design to include Actual Play performance, production, art & design, and MORE! 

"I thought to myself, why stop at game designers? I want to learn more about AP production, layout design, and the artistry behind the best AP performances in the space! I want to talk to EVERYONE!"

The show premiered on April 22nd (Happy Birthday Val!) with an interview with the founders of Weave Storytelling Games, Poorna M and Armaan. They explored their new game Love is On The Cards, game design and how to support non-western TTRPG creators within the industry.

Uplifting creators with all smiles!
