Considering including me is news to me, thank you. (You know I don't just play Dredmor, right?) I'm pretty surprised I was actually mentioned in this discussion at all, but if you still think about it I'm openminded to discussion about that at some point. Anything like that would have to wait a while, I'm adjusting to some hardcore meds. I'm easy to find though so get in touch if you want to talk about it later.

I raised the possibility as part of a 'we should really do a its been a year of Dredmor' follow up episode. Nothing really concrete beyond that: we have a lot of episode ideas and not enough time at the moment.

Also the trolling about gender would get drowned out by the trolling about Dredmor not being a real roguelike.

As for disabled gamers, we're actively working on organising a podcast relating to that at the moment.

@Doull - Regarding that, I did see the post on your blog, I was wondering how far it extends? Disability is such a vast and individual thing, you know?

  Also I should caution. Even more than when discussing gender or race, it is very easy to sound like a backward dick when discussing disabilities. Even if you are a perfectly nice and understanding person. Many can understand physical disabilities, but cognitive disabilities can be strange and impossible to classify.

  I figure you and Grey and the rest will do just fine, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

Visual impairments is the main focus, as that has special applications with screen readers and audio feedback, and there are a fair number of blind roguelike players.

My late uncle was blind, and my dad is colour blind, so I'm hoping we get a useful discussion [1].

We tend to save the wild irreverence and speculation for when we have to actually play then talk about a roguelike.

[1] Not that either of them played roguelikes, but I'd hate to have to explain to Dad why I made a public dick of myself on a topic somewhat close to him.

Well where is all the discussion about roguelikes? It stopped when we realized there is a woman here. Hence women kill roguelike forums.

Well the Nethack valkyrie is exclusively female. I wonder if the dwarven ones have beards?
