I'm Anna; chronically ill warlock with no more spell slots. I am the creator of D&D Disability, and really, this is my passion project! I am autistic, as well as have fibromyalgia, a chronic condition. When diagnosed with both of these in 2020, I quickly became extremely passionate about disability representation and got more involved in that, especially in DnD. When I started playing my character, Yen, with some quickly thrown together chronic pain mechanics - I realized that this was something I wanted to work on. And really, it's taken off from there! 

Outside of this project, I'm also a dice maker at Three Fates Dice! I make primarily sets for DnD, but I'm planning to branch out into other ttrpg dice in 2021. I am also a full time German Shepherd mom to the spiciest puppy, who you can see in the picture above. I've been an entrepreneur for over five years, and now at twenty, these creative endeavors are my full time job/source of income! As I'm disabled, I can't really work "normal" jobs, so being able to pursue these creative endeavors and projects as my job has been an incredible experience. 

 

I don't know what will happen next with this project, but I have grand plans and ideas, and I thank all of you for following me along this journey! Whatever comes next, I hope my passion and love for this project always shows.

I’m Embers! A Dungeon Master and digital artist with a passion for bringing disability rep to the world of Dungeons and Dragons! I’ve got ADHD and chronic back pain. I believe that everyone has a place in the stories we create together and that we should all be able to see ourselves as epic fantasy adventurers if we want to. Adventure isn’t just for able-bodied and neurotypical people. Also it’s fantasyland where you can do what you want, so that’s what I’m doing.

 

I run one of the campaigns we’re playtesting this content in, and help consult in the process of figuring out the mechanics. I’m very excited to see this brought to life and shared with many more people in the future.

Hey there! I'm Jael, a 22 year old disabled history major with fibromyalgia. I have been playing tabletop games for 3 years, and adore telling stories collaboratively. Thoughtful disability representation in media has been a long-standing passion of mine, even before coming down with my own chronic illness. I look forward to adapting mechanics for all types of tabletop systems!

Other creative endeavors of mine include traditional art, writing, embroidery, and costuming- historical and pop culture.

I’m Aimee (they/she) — a TTRPG enthusiast, dungeon master, filmmaker, and writer! I’m also autistic, mentally ill, and have PTSD and a paranoia disorder, and I’m passionate about seeing disability repped in media. When I’m not making coffee at your local coffee shop in the mountains, I intern in the film and literary industries, as well as writing novels with weird sci-fi elements and playing all the TTRPGs!

 

More than anything else, I care about story, and about characters specifically. I believe that collaborative storytelling of any kind, whether it’s with a film crew, a tabletop party, or even just a co-writer, is one of the most important things you can do. Disability and diversity belong in tabletop gaming, and they make all of us better — disabled and mentally ill people are badass, and we deserve to see ourselves as heroes!
