Welcome to another episode of Reckless A-Talk, our TTRPG interview show where we sit down with some of our favorite writers, players, GMs, and streamers to get to know a little bit more about what makes them who they are.
This week, we had the pleasure of interviewing the, well, magnificent Candace the Magnificent!
Candace is a powerhouse of creativity in and out of the TTRPG space. As a player, they are known for their colorful and memorable characters (as well as the colorful and memorable costumes she often wears to represent them), but they do it all, including writing, sensitivity reading, game running, writing, serving as an Ennies awards judge, and much more.
In today’s interview, we talk about how she leaves room for growth in their characters, knowing your needs, the gift of connection, taking accountability, and doing emotional labor for those who can’t. Among, as always, a great many other things.
CW: Mental health, adderall shortage, police brutality, racism
