Itai grew up around honey bees, other pollinators, and medical care as a form of service. She is involved in the permaculture movement and growing regenerative food forests from native species, as well as creating more accessible healthcare.
She got her start in tabletop gaming in 7th grade, playing a completely homegrown system cooked up by a friend. She has experience with Edge of the Empire, and most of the editions of D and D. Tabletop gaming is, for her, about collective storytelling and exploration. B/X consistently produces her favorite tabletop experiences and is the system used for most of the adventures that inspire these blog posts.
