Seattle, WA, March 16, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Announcing Queens of Adventure, a Dungeons & Dragons podcast starring four drag queens who slay their way through a fantasy role-playing game. For the first time ever, real drag queens play real D&D in an ongoing podcast adventure.
The Queens of Adventure podcast brings together larger-than-life drag shows and epic fantasy quests. On each episode, the queens tuck into a meaty challenge, rolling the dice as they combat killer wigs, tame burly bears, investigate shady seamen, and misty step their way through a realm of imagination.
Set in an inclusive fantasy world where queer heroes face down fears, triumph over adversity, and spread their sickening radiance wherever they go, Queens of Adventure welcomes listeners who may have felt excluded or overlooked in other fantasy worlds.
In a world where the power of drag is available to anyone who unleashes the hero within, Queens of Adventure celebrates all genders and orientations.
Queens of Adventure’s first season was fully funded by fans on Kickstarter in just five days. With crowdfunding continuing through the end of March, Queens of Adventure is now surpassing stretch goals that include live streamed interactive D&D games with drag queens.
The show is produced by LGBT writer/podcaster Matt Baume and his partner, game designer James Morris. For the last six months, they’ve been hosting live Dungeons & Drag Queens shows that play to sold-out audiences in their hometown of Seattle.
“From our sold-out live shows, we could see that there’s a powerful craving for queer D&D,” said Baume. “There just aren’t enough LGBTQ heroes to satisfy the need. We created Queens of Adventure to connect people all over the world who didn’t feel like there was a place for them in fantasy games.”
Visit Queens of Adventure’s Kickstarter page at QueensOfAdventure.com for more information about the show, to watch videos of the cast, and to sign up for exclusive backer rewards.
Queens of Adventure is crowdfunding through March 31, 2018.
The podcast premieres in May of 2018 on all podcast platforms.
New episodes will appear every other week.
Backer rewards include: a foil-printed postcard created by celebrated artist Chad Sell; bonus episodes; a downloadable activity book; the ability to vote on game elements; and more.
The cast: Harlotte O’Scara as the Rogue; Butylene O’Kipple as the Alchemist; Fraya Love as the Cleric; Arson Nicki as the Warlock; and Matt Baume as the Dungeon Master.
Hi-res images of the cast are available.
