Main Platform: TTRPG/D&D/Variety

“Omega Jones, also known as the Critical Bard, is a professional actor and vocalist from the Midwest. He had a focus on live musical theatre & performance until he switched to being a full time content creator on Twitter & Twitch. As a tabletop professional, he has worked with many companies including Wizards of the Coast, World of Darkness, and created the theme song for Critter Hug, a signal boosting monthly show produced by Critical Role. He is the executive producer of Let’s Get Wildemount, a D&D campaign set in Critical Role’s Wildemount setting, and Dungeons & Durags, an all black led D&D homebrew campaign.

His focus in content creation revolves around diversity, inclusion, and activism. He is the creator and moderator of the #BLACKAFRoundtable, a series of talks about the realities of racism with the tabletop space & community. He has appeared as a guest panelist in many spaces, including VirtuousCon, TakeThis, and the QBExRainbowArcade Summit. He was chosen as one of the QueerInGames finalists for this work as a queer activist in the content creative space & was featured as a face of Twitch Pride 2021. As a full time partnered Twitch streamer, he strives for continued black and queer representation & urges folk to keep making treble wherever they go, as it is up to them to shake of this system, one Treblemaker at a time.”
