Today our students had the opportunity to meet and hear from Kate Welch and Jeremy Crawford…at a first of it’s kind D&D Café! Ms. Kate and Mr. Jeremy spoke to our students about their work as lead designers on D&D for Wizards of the Coast.
Ms. Kate has a background in both video game development as well as being the newest member of the D&D design team. Mr. Jeremy is the lead rules designer for D&D and is an outspoken advocate for diversity and inclusivity in gaming.
Thanks, Mr. E!
