Modifier

Modifier is an interview show hosted by Meghan Dornbrock all about why and how people change games. Episodes tackle accessibility, homebrews, system conversions, and that Apocalypse World hack you’ve secretly been working on. From the hobbyist to the professional, from house rules to publication, we all have in mind a better way to play. 

Meghan Dornbrock knows that books are true magic, and has a weak spot for storytelling rogue-kings. An artist, animator, and all-around games enthusiast, she’s fascinated by the many different ways there are to tell a good story and is eager to see what’ll come next. Eventually she will die on Mars, but currently she lives in the uncool part of Brooklyn.

One time she made her brother hold a frog and he hasn’t really gotten over it.
