ROCK HILL, South Carolina (December 3rd, 2021) – The Athena Alliance CLT, a women’s gaming organization based out of the Carolinas, are creating collaborative content with TFN members and the founder of Zombie Orpheus Entertainment. Airing on TFN, The Fantasy Network is a digital platform dedicated to helping fans and creators tell their stories. For one night, they will join a one-shot tabletop campaign of Dungeons & Dragons with beginners and experienced players alike.
Join them for a tale of excitement, mystery, and intrigue with a unique cast of characters.
Founder of The Athena Alliance CLT and radio personality Emi (The Goddess of Opportunity) reached out to former Board President and filmmaker Ben Dobyns, who has been an avid TTRPG player and supporter since the early 90’s. This is the first time they will be joining in a campaign with the gaming organization since their partnership in March 2020. With their art mimicking life, they will be playing a gender-neutral character. Joining Ben as a Fantasy Network alum will also be Leland House, social media manager and indie TTRPG enthusiast. He has a love for story driven narratives and supports women and BiPOC in the gaming space.
From the gaming organization will be fellow goddesses Elie Lynn and The Indie Altar host LgndoftheStar. This will be Elie Lynn’s first try at playing a TTRPG, and LgndoftheStar will be joining as an indie lover and fan. This is the 2nd program she is participating in with The Fantasy Network.
And rounding out the cast will be Giselle, a Puerto Rican game writer from the Norwegian indie studio Red Thread Games. After watching Critical Role, Giselle has been inspired to join the TTRPG world, leading Twitch front page events such as the Dungeons & Dragons campaign for Unidos Online from LatinxinGaming. She is joining as the Dungeon Master, with little known as far as what the story will entail.
An Ambivalent Alliance focuses on 5 characters starting at level 1 and will be a story that is friendly to those who do not have experience with tabletop role playing games. It will be a story full of adventure, mystery, and intrigue. This event is set to take place on Saturday, December 11th at 8PM EST via The Athena Alliance CLT social media on livestream, and on The Fantasy Network. The program will also be available to view afterwards as well as a special event program. This is a part of a series of charity streams to raise money for The Children’s Attention Home and Levine Children’s Hospital this season, and you can support that cause at gofund.me/86bd99cd.
You can support the creators by following and sharing the stream, as well as subscribing to The Fantasy Network for more content from diverse casts and writers.
