Braille Dice from FigmentsOfFilaments
by Hawke Robinson published Apr 18, 2018 last modified Apr 19, 2018 12:13 PM — filed under: , ,
Unfortunately the dice we purchased were very poorly made, with holes through them, inconsistent sizing, too light, and poor design for those with visual impairment. Also I was unable to easily contact the seller for support. At this point I'm sorry to say I can't recommend them. If the issues are addressed in the future by the seller, and pending feedback from Nexus center and others, I will update this posting accordingly.

by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2017 — filed under:
Debriefing is a somewhat controversial topic in role-playing communities today. While some individuals feel that games should remain distinct from the mundane world and debriefing is an unnecessary complication, many role-players have grown concerned about difficulties in the process of transitioning between intense game experiences back to mundane life.[1]
