Splat is a zine focused on role-playing games and what it means to play them. It includes contributions from 11 talented writers, each of whom are looking to redefine or challenge perspectives on play. Inside, you'll find advice on how to play games for an audience, and on how to resolve interpersonal conflicts at the table. You'll learn about how RPGs are used in therapy and in the classroom. And you'll hear thoughts from designers on agency, flow, and fun.
