Three notable writers in the TTRPG news and critic space - Lin Codega, Rowan Zeoli, and Chase Carter - have teamed up to launch a new website. Rascal is the name, and it’s completely worker-owned and subscriber supported. The idea is that culture journalism often turns into a game of reaching for clicks while also being sanitized enough to get ad revenue. The trio behind Rascal instead envision a platform that can cover everything from big game news to indie labor efforts. Those wanting sincere, knowledgeable, and deep writing about TTRPGs should check it out.
