Introducing an online community for atheist gamers.

I’ve decided to put some effort into making an online space for atheist gamers. It seems there are tons of atheist gamers of all stripes – pc gamers, console gamers, table toppers, LARPers – but nowhere they can all really hang out. I want to fix that.
