Meeting Recap: May 4th

May the 4th be with you!

Previously, on DUDAD…

OSD was yesterday! Did you have fun? I know I did.

We’ve gotten some great feedback on our demographics survey! Thank you to everyone who’s participated. That info is incredibly important to us and we’re addressing your concerns and suggestions!

  • We recommend to DMs to have a “Session 0” to hash out character sheets and get to know everyone so we’re able to use DUDAD for it’s best purpose: making new friends! This is also an excellent opportunity for learning everyone’s names and pronouns!
  • We’re going to try and push a wide variety of people to DM so that we have more representation among our DMs. DUDAD has habitually had mostly white cis-men as DMs and we’re hoping to cast a wider net using our DM Workshops! If you have any more suggestions, definitely message us or leave a comment below.
  • The pre-game meetings are important, but we hadn’t realized they may be anxiety-inducing or uncomfortable for some of our players. We’re so sorry about that, and will be actively sending out these recap emails on Sundays following the meetings. Thanks for the heads up!
  • We are also sorry for not including more options in the gender portion of this survey! We will not be including other options in this survey simply because it would skew the data we’ve already received, but we will definitely be including more trans-friendly options in the future. Again, thank you!

If you haven’t had a chance to fill out the demographic survey yet, please do! We’re loving this feedback! Especially if it helps us support our members and their identities! Love y’all! ❤

Campaign Apps are due! Soft deadline is today (Sunday, May 6th) at 2pm. Please apply even if you only have a mild interest in DMing! As previously mentioned, we would love to have a large selection of campaigns and a large amount of representation among our DMs. Come one, come all!

MARIO KART TOURNAMENT! We can’t wait!! It will be held Saturday, May 19th, from 7-10pm in ECS! Questions? Message or email us, or message Martin Duarte! See you there!

ATTENTION PLAYERS: Do you get jealous when other campaigns have donut holes? Have you been craving Sour Patch Kids? Annoy your DMs to send in attendance and to give snack suggestions!

We’ve distributed almost all of our shirts. If you haven’t gotten one yet, please please message us! We still have a few reserved shirts left and we wanna make sure our members are rockin’ the latest in DUDAD fashion.

Wanna opt out of these emails? Tell Hannah Renea at the next meeting on Friday, May 11th at 7pm in Driscoll 145.

TL;DR?

  • OSD was a blast, as always!
  • We were thrilled to get responses on our demographics survey! Keep ’em coming!
  • Campaign Apps! We want lots of DMs!
  • Mario Mark your calendars! Mario Kart tournament on May 19th!
  • Bug DMs about sending in attendance!
  • Let us know if you’re still waiting on a shirt!

Over and out!
