The List

So what, exactly, is on this mysterious list when one of the Glitter Dice Podcast hosts rolls the d20 to choose the topic for each episode? People have been asking, so we’ve decided to give you a little hit regarding the possible topics we might be discussing each month. The list is numbered 1 - 20, and when a topic is discussed on the show, a new topic is added from a section of alternates for the next month. The list in its current form looks something like this:

  1. Things you love and hate in larp

  2. Favorite video game heroines

  3. Geek hierarchy in gaming

  4. Blockbuster games and accessibility

  5. Things you love and hate in board games

  6. The rising popularity of actual play games

  7. Safety tools in roleplaying games

  8. Gaming and depictions of violence

  9. Design a game in 30 minutes or less

  10. Fantasy themes in gaming

  11. Leaving the dice behind in tabletop RPGs

  12. Storygames vs. OSR

  13. Character tropes in RPGs

  14. Platform wars and console exclusives

  16. Cyberpunk themes in games

  17. Things you’re “over” in gaming

  18. Larp vs. immersive theater, similarities and differences
