The world of tabletop roleplaying games such as Dungeons and Dragons has been shaken by a major fracas in its community. 

Tabletop gaming has experienced a major rise in popularity in recent years, thanks partly to TV shows such as Stranger Things and The Big Bang Theory.

But proposed licensing changes by D&D publisher Hasbro put that at risk as fans swore off the game and threatened to boycott upcoming movies. Elsewhere the industry is facing problems of inclusivity. 

Morgan Davie, a Wellington tabletop enthusiast and gaming developer and author gives us the lowdown on what's going on.
