Nerdarchist Dave got three special guests for the cost of one when he welcomed Satine Phoenix to the Nerdarchy live chat. Hanging out on her birthday from her home/studio in sunny Los Angeles, Phoenix shared her morning chatting live and answering questions. Nerd culture colleagues Ruty Rutenberg and Ivan van Norman hung out in the background and made a few guest appearances in the chat to say hello and talk about their own gaming projects.
A proud nerd and Dungeons & Dragons fanatic, Phoenix stays plenty busy as the co-creator of Maze Arcana, host of Geek and Sundry’s GM Tips, co-creator of the graphic novel “New Praetorians” and many other endeavors that bring together her passion for art and tabletop roleplaying games.
Dubbed the “Queen of D&D” by Time magazine, she organized “Celebrity Charity Dungeons & Dragons” at Meltdown Comics in LA, a charity event to raise funds for Reach Out and Read, a national non-profit organization that advocates for childhood literacy. She co-hosts Game School on the TSR Podcast Network.
Satine Phoenix is one busy gamer.
During the chat, Phoenix discussed the impact D&D has had on her life, shared lore and behind-the-scenes stories from Maze Arcana and talked about the incredible opportunities her passion for gaming has brought to her life.
Nerdarchist Dave and Phoenix also talk about the inclusiveness of gaming culture, staying creative, engaging with the community and the pride they both share in making sure to maintain safe, fun environments for any and all players who join their games. Nerdarchy fans will be happy to note that Phoenix is one herself, a longtime viewer of Nerdarchy’s YouTube videos.
Phoenix will also be part of the upcoming Stream of Annihilation from Wizards of the Coast, a live-streamed event to announce the next 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons product and a new lineup of Twitch shows including Fury’s Reach. This new campaign will feature two different groups of players. Phoenix will DM for one group that will stream on Tuesdays, with Rutenberg DMing a Wednesday group. The two parties will adventure in the same setting simultaneously and their actions will affect each other and the world around them.
