Gadget's Adventure Emporium is a one-woman operation. Like anything meaningful however, it takes a village of supporting friends and family to keep that one woman going. Some of these include:
My name is Christina, but my friends call me Gadget.
I was first introduced to Table Top Role Playing Games (TTRPGs) when I was 14. At that time, we mostly played White Wolf's Vampire: The Masquerade and Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu. 20 years, 2 states, and MANY different games later I finally sat down to play Dungeons & Dragons for the first time.
Somewhere in there I spent 10 years teaching in 3 different museums, getting married, and moving from sunny San Diego to evergreen Washington State. I've changed in nearly every way imaginable from that 14-year-old, but I still love spending a few hours with friends creating fantastic stories and eating Doritos.
As an adult, I am much more aware of the positive impact TTRPGs have had in my life. As a woman, as someone with learning disorders and anxiety, and as an educator who doesn't make tons of money, I have seen some places in the gaming world where I think I can make a difference. TTRPGs have so much amazing potential but are still somewhat of a mystery to many folks.
Gadget's Adventure Emporium is a business that helps others become confident in THEIR ability to imagine.
Once we can imagine then we can create.
