A Candid Talk on Diversity in D&D
Our chat took a profound turn when we ventured into the realm of diversity in D&D. Jasper's perspective was both enlightening and thought-provoking.
"I typed into YouTube 'black people in D&D', and the only thing that came up was Terry Cruz DMing a one shot for a mostly white table." - Jasper W Cartwright
This statement underscores the pressing need for broader representation in the community. However, it's heartening to see the positive strides being made ,with the community becoming increasingly inclusive.!
Jasper's Character Choices and Pearls of Wisdom
Jasper's character preferences are as diverse as his talents. Lately, he's been enamored with warlocks and sorcerers.And he had a light-hearted take on Paladins, mentioning, "Sometimes Paladins are not great to have in the group because they're just really good at everything." For those venturing into the world of D&D, Jasper's advice is golden: "Understand that TTRPGs and DND at their best are shared storytelling experiences." It's a reminder that D&D is as much about collaboration as it is about individual prowess.
