Episode 55 – Orcs Aren’t Evil

In the summer of 2020, Dungeons and Dragons announced that along with removing past racially insensitive material from its books and adding more diverse writers and game designers, that they were also removing the well-used trope of “evil races” from their game.  Since it has been nearly a calendar year since that announcement, we here at the Roleplaying Exchange decide to weigh in on this topic.  If you have listened to us for any amount of time, you can probably guess where we are going to land on the matter.

Joining in on this conversation is Adam, Chris, Laura May, Rob, and special guests/honorary RPXers David from Role Playing Public Radio and Crazon from Al Dente Rigamortis and One Less Die.
