D&D’s Creators Are the Subject of Bullying and Blacklisting Allegations!
Former D&D community manager turned TTRPG content producer Satine Phoenix (and her husband, Jamison Stone) became embroiled in a social media firestorm this week when new charges surfaced on Twitter about their conduct toward freelancers, coworkers, and other TTRPG members. As well as Krystina Arielle and Luke Gygax, they’ve collaborated with Matt Mercer of Critical Role.
He started a thread on June 8th detailing his professional dealings with the couple, particularly Stone, and it has since been taken down. While working with Stone for three days, he had been hired to work with the couple for three days total. It wasn’t until he mentioned his previous experience with contracts that he became intrigued by the idea of setting one up with Rowe.
Phoenix and Stone allegedly exploited their apparent popularity to try to pressure him to obey their directions, according to Rowe, who handled calls and queries from both and felt “very insulted and board line abused” by the two.
It doesn’t take long for TTRPG Twitter to pick up speed when you have creators like these involved. Soon after, others began to share their own stories. One of the creators of the 5e campaign and setting book Sirens: Battle of the Bards, Jessica Marcrum, took to Instagram to show off some of the interactions she had with other members of the team. When Marcrum and other authors pressed Jamison regarding freelancer payment, he acted evasive, placing them on a “blacklist” and threatening their jobs for “unprofessional behavior.”
It was a unanimous decision between the project’s writing director and a contributing writer, Pat Edwards, and Crystal M. Another Red Opera campaign writer had the same experience. Further, Ray Jenkins called his time on the project “horror” that the designers used to “ego trip,” making him feel that he should be “THANKFUL for the opportunity to work with a ‘D&D Luminary’ and ‘Apotheosis’.”
In fact, even GeekyPinup, who has worked with Satine on a number of projects, says she hasn’t been paid for her work on Sirens.
A Power Couple in The Gaming World?
Geek and Sundry, The Sirens, and Wizards of the Coast’s D&D World Manager Satine Phoenix have all made her a well-known figure in the D&D community for more than a decade. At GaryCon this year, Jamison Stone, a fitness instructor, and game creator married his longtime girlfriend, Phoenix, in front of family and friends. The two of them live in the same state.
Satine is the main force behind Gilding Light, a storytelling firm based in Los Angeles, while Stone operates Apotheosis Studios, which produced Sirens: Battle of the Bards, The Red Opera, and other publications. The wedding of Phoenix and Stone was live-streamed at this year’s GaryCon and officiated by Luke Gygax, the son of D&D creator Gary Gygax.
Their other ventures include a luxury vacation and gaming event, StonePhoenix Fitness, and Satine’s Quest, where groups of D&D players can play with prominent game masters like Phoenix Stone, Keith Baker of the Eberron campaign setting, and The Sirens guitarist Jason Charles Miller.
Realmsmith’s Jason Azevedo, one of the DMs on a recent Satine’s Quest Cruise, commented on Chad Rowe’s thread. In his statement, he highlighted the swindling, harassment, and gaslighting of event organizers and guests, including Phoenix herself (an allegation against Stone also made by Rowe).
Two D3atSea organizers have been accused by one of their fellow players of trying to exclude him from events and shut down D3 in order to decrease competition. In his thread, Jason says that Phoenix and Stone conspired to steal his business and force him out of D&D In a Castle.
