Arcadum Responds to Accusations

Arcadum

Dungeons and Dragons Twitch streamer  Jeremy “Arcadum” Black has responded to recent allegations from a number of women who accused him of grooming and manipulation, among other things.

Arcadum posted the following statement via his official Twitter page:

“To Everyone,

The past few days have been a difficult time for a lot of people, including my family, friends, and the entire community as a whole. For me, it has also been a time of personal reflection.

There have been many stories and feelings shared about some of my actions over the years within the D&D community. I have been processing a lot and want to address matters as best I can. I realize I will not be able to repair much of the damage that has been done or properly share my full perspective, but I owe an explanation and apology to all those effected.

The truth is, I have developed and engaged in a wide range of relationships with people over the years – some of them leading into sexual territories and times when I made mistakes and was selfish. I never sought out relationships purely for sexual purposes, and to be absolutely clear, I have never engaged in nonconsensual activity. These were relationships that developed as genuine friendships. I greatly valued these friendships and still do, yet I have been unfair to many of them, and I am sorry for the hurt I have caused them.

In addition to being unfair to my friends, I have also been unfair to my wife Tiffany. Last week, Tiffany became aware of these relationships and my communications with people that crossed boundaries within our marriage. Understandably, she was heartbroken, and I tried to do as much as I could to salvage the situation. This included attempting to edit and delete messages I had exchanged with different people, as well as reaching out to them to explain I would not be able to continue any sort of professional or personal association. This was a painful experience, and as a result, I have learned and reckoned with many of the mistakes I have made.

One of the things I regret most is that I’ve now hurt people who I have greatly cared for over the course of many years – people I have confided in, and who confided in me. These are people who have helped me overcome personal challenges when I needed their support, and who I have shared truly meaningful experiences with. It has become clear that I’ve betrayed those relationships, and again, I am deeply sorry for that.

I want to be clear and encourage everyone to support Tiffany during this time. Tiffany has been my truest friend. Even with my mistakes and all of the ups-and-downs, she has shown me a lot of grace over the years. She will always be a part of me, and I will always love her.

To those who have been reaching out, I am sorry that I have been unresponsive – I don’t know where to begin in explaining everything or apologizing to so many of you I have let down. I have removed myself from Callous Row, Verum, and other D&D spaces as I don’t want to cause any further harm in a community that means so much to me. I will not be streaming as I continue to reflect on my actions and seek therapy for personal issues I have struggled with for some time.

In the meantime, I wish nothing but the best for everyone involved in this situation and the wider community.
Arcadum”

Amazon owned streaming platform Twitch is reportedly nearing a music licensing agreement with the National Music Publisher’s Association (NMPA) that would put an end to the long battle between the publishing organization and the live-streaming platform, according to Billboard.

The reports goes on to state that the two parties have come to an agreement in principle, but there is nothing binding that has been signed. Another source cited in the report said that a deal may be announced by the end of September.

A licensing agreement between Twitch and music labels has been in the works for years, per the report, and would likely bring an end to the DMCA takedowns on the platform, a big plus for twitch streams moving forward, should a deal become official.

Splitgate

1047 Games, the developer behind ‘Splitgate’, has much more in store for fans of the game, according to creator/developer Ian Proulx who said that the immensely popular PvP game is only 25% complete.

In an interview with TechCrunch, and with some comments to GamesBeat, Proulx talked about the plans for the game, which has generated $100 million in investment capital over the past few months.

“The scope of what we can do is now through the roof,” Proulx explains. “There’s so much we couldn’t think about because we were a tiny team with a tiny budget, but now everything is on the table. We’re focusing on the long term — I look at the game as being 25% done. We don’t need to be Fortnite tomorrow, but now it really is about building the next Riot Games, the next big games business.”
