For all the female fans of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, We at Louis Porter Jr. Design we need your help...

I have made a conscious decision to get more people interested in NeoExodus and specifically getting more women who play Pathfinder RPG playing in the NeoExodus setting. For me this isn’t just lip service or some silly promotion to draw interest, this about NeoExodus being open to all and getting past the typical fantasy tropes that have existed since the beginning of time. I may have been, subconsciously, doing this since the creation of the setting of having four of the five major empires run by women and the BBEG from the Khaynites, Widowmaker Scarlet, being a woman but this is something I think will be good for us a company. Amber Scott was nice to work with us on the creation of the Annihilation Sphere and tying it into the background of our terrorist organization, the Folding Circle. I think fantasy RPG games and industry in general can be a bit of an old boy’s network often forgetting that not every woman playing the game doesn’t want to be the “healer” of the group, while the “boys” do all the action.

With this, LPJ Design is going to focus on not just recruiting new women as writers, editors and artists but to promote them to other 3PP and help make their dreams of working in the gaming industry come true. The more different representations you can have in an industry only helps expends the industry. Talk to you later...
