Curated Play Program GM
Lili Sparx is the girl with many lives. Since her introduction to TTRPG in 2018, Lili has run a variety of systems for many people in a lot of different places. She got her start in Toronto as part of a large Toronto DND community. From there she became more active in the streaming community, appearing on several notable channels. Lili has also run games at conventions like Gencon and Pax Unplugged.
An avid roleplayer and amateur voice artist, Lili tries to portray a wide range of characters from diverse walks of life. The stories that Lili crafts are often based on emotions and experience, and the games she runs are no different. So if you’re looking for games involving soul searching and moral dilemmas, with an emphasis on fun and comedy, then Lili’s games are probably a good fit for you.
“Lili made me feel very comfortable and capable despite my near-total lack of gaming experience. I felt like everyone was met on their own comfort level and encouraged in a way that was an invitation to stretch our wings a bit without feeling pressured beyond our comfort zone.“
“Lili was great. They did character voices and looked up lore and designs that fit our characters which helped everyone become more immersed.”
“Lili kept the energy up throughout the whole campaign, and really focused on bringing each individual characters “thing that makes them special” into the spotlight.”
“If I could rate inclusivity a 6/5 I would — Lili did a fantastic job of explicitly articulating expectations for play and making sure everyone was on board with making it safe and fun for everyone. I know there’s a non-trivial amount of emotional labor that goes into making players feel welcome, so just wanted to drop a note of thanks. I also really appreciated how well they were able to get people on board with the mechanics of Masks, especially given that most everyone was new and a number of us expressed confusion on the mechanics coming over from DnD. Just a great job all around.”
Lili uses the following tools in their games:
- Lines and Veils
- Lines: Abuse of children or animals, sexual assault/harassment, misogyny (unless part of the game system), bigotry (homophobia, transphobia, racism, etc)
- The X Card
If you are not familiar with the safety tools, more information on lines and veils is available here, while more information about the x card is available here.
