Definitely! They should be core tenets, even before negative experiences come along. But when situations like those happen, it brings home the need for them even more starkly.

Hmmm, that's awful. It's easy to understand why the point regarding love, empathy and respect resonates so much for you. Thank you for sharing this!

Great insights, thanks! And, wow, that last experience hits home how important those foundations are. If you don't mind me asking, what were the sticking points or interpersonal factors that meant they didn't integrate into the group?

Even a personal take or variation on an existing point would be amazing. Or stating which one of these points meant the most to you. And, if you're comfortable with the idea, then I'd love to add your answer to the thread.

I should mention that this thread is focused on just one question raised in the panel. There was so much more discussed in the session that was invaluable and important. A huge thank you again to all the panelists.

A huge shout-out to for creating the D&D Block Party 2020 event. Go follow them and the entire D&D Accessibility Panel. The Block Party is to benefit The Trevor Project, so go donate. More sessions are still being live-streamed at

And, drawing more widely from the session, from : Understand that disability is NOT binary - it's not all or nothing. Disability can absolutely feature in D&D, no matter the setting. And, from a creative perspective, "Make your fantasy better than our reality".

From : Love, empathy and respect. This should be the foundation for all your games and interactions between each other. And, remember to love yourselves; from that mindset you will feel a little stronger in yourself and will be able to help others more, too.

From : Normalise asking players if they are okay. Check on your players and if they are comfortable and having fun. Help them to settle into the game; some players will take a session or a number of sessions to settle in and be comfortable. Normalise this.

From : Normalise using audio dice rollers. Normalise hand-outs to keep things legible. Normalise that it's okay to ask for things to be repeated. And, for DMs: describe things using all 5 senses. Even use people's sixth sense - the feeling you get from a place, etc.

From : Believe disabled people. Don't mistake a person's ability to survive in the world as them faking it or trying to get attention. Also, if you stream your games: please use closed captioning so D/deaf and HOH viewers can follow along! (The software is free!)

Replying to @BlindTemple
From : Start by asking players what they need. (You can do this even before your party comes together. Asking away from others can make disabled people more comfortable to discuss their needs and sensitivities.) Also: allow people to use electronics at the table!

When it comes to people on my feed who give generously of themselves to everyone they come across, who shine a light wherever they go, who are constantly lifting others up, always comes to mind. Temple needs a kidney. And we can help him find one. Please RT/consider

When you combine a topic like "Accessibility in D&D" with such an incredible panel of wonderful people, this becomes unmissable. And, yes, I am thinking of getting up at 4 am on Monday morning to watch! (Unfortunately, that's what 11 am PT translates to for many Australians.)

If you think you'd make a great coordinator/creative producer to develop arts projects that raise the profile of "Deaf and Disabled artists", and you live in Victoria... this is for you!
