    Over the weekend Zine Quest 3, a high-profile event at Kickstarter celebrating the independent tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) community, came to a close. The promotion had helped shine a light on dozens of small creators around the world. But in its final hours, Kickstarter’s vice president and head of community Luke Crane launched a campaign that came under fire for its inclusion of controversial game designer Adam Koebel.

He’s also a successful game designer and publisher in his own right, and it’s that time spent close to the metal of the TTRPG scene that’s given him insight into that space — and, likely, contributed to tabletop games’ continued dominance on that platform. Crane is now a vice president at Kickstarter, charged with leading its efforts at building and maintaining community. With...
