Lovely Ladies of DarkestGoth: The 2017 Spokesmodel Announcement [NEWS/ANNOUNCEMENT]

Each year, the DGM Spokesmodel represents DarkestGoth and the Gothic community at large through spokesmodel galleries, event coverage, promotional material, articles, and interviews. To help accomplish this, they receive press credentials so that they have the special access they require to events, festivals, cons, and parties. This is not only a rare honor, but it’s also a responsibility, because they are helping our readers to live vicariously through them throughout the year they reign.

Born to Game: Day 3 of Gen Con 2015 [ARTICLE/EVENT]

Born to Game: Day 1 of Gen Con 2015 [EXTENDED ARTICLE]

(This doesn’t mean that there aren’t some cool tabletop games that take advantage of technology in their gameplay, but the technology isn’t required for the playing of most of the games.)
