The original, longest-running and busiest gaming convention in the world for fans and trade exhibitors will shine a spotlight on Osborn as she attends to make several interview and actual-play guest appearances and to raise awareness for neurodiversity and disability in TTRPG spaces.
“I am thrilled to return to GenCon to see old friends, make some new ones and share my experiences with like-minded gaming fans that made the trip to the Indiana Convention Center for The Best Four Days in Gaming,” said Osborn.
“This year I am particularly excited to be asked to run a one-shot of Epidiah Ravachol’s award-winning horror-based game, Dread. The game will be played live onstage in ICC 101 and streamed to GenCon’s Twitch channel. Most importantly, we’ll be fundraising for The Trevor Project: a not-for profit that focuses on suicide prevention efforts among LGBTQIA+ youth. The audience will have the opportunity to donate in order to affect what happens in-game, so it should be a really fun and entertaining evening!”
