    Virtual Office Hours

    This year with the help of Pixel Circus, Big Bad Online is hosted Virtual Office Hours where TTRPG industry professionals met with nearly 60 creators from marginalized identities to help them advance their careers. The meetings took place on April 1st (no joke here!) during Big Bad Online. It was a smashing success!

  • Big Bad Online 2023

    24 hours of amazing, free-to-view panels on a diverse array of TTRPG-related topics! Your fundraising support helped us amplify the voices of marginalized designers, professionals, and players in our TTRPG community.
