It was during a lecture they probably should have been listening to when Sara Thompson scribbled Dungeons & Dragons Combat Wheelchair on the back cover of a textbook. They had been talking about the wheelchair for a while, upset by a game that offered players unlimited freedom to be who they wanted but still struggled to fully represent them. So they did something about it.
a few years later the Combat Wheelchair add-on for Dungeons & Dragons is in its third edition, is tens of pages long and has reached the whole world. It caught the attention of writers working for D&D maker Wizards of the Coast, inspired bespoke miniature models, and was featured by mega-popular Critical Role host Matt Mercer.
