Playing with Youngers: Do RPGs teach you anything?

Art is a self-taught, self-sought endeavor for me as of late. Hope you enjoy. 🙂 When I run fantasy role-playing games for kids on Outschool, I always label the classes as "Life Skills." Frankly, it doesn't really count as any of the other tags like "Social Studies" or "English" or "Math" even though RPGs contain … Continue reading Playing with Youngers: Do RPGs teach you anything?

Dragonslayer Adventures: Hits and Healing

He's looking for a fight... Dragonslayer Adventures is an RPG for online play geared towards fantasy. The focus has been rather item focused with it's character packages and optional inventory system (though if I use it in every game now, I guess it's not that optional for me...).

Old-School Essentials Boxed Set Instead of saying "you spend one action to heal a target … Continue reading A Young Adventurer’s Guide is Old-School Essentials for kids

So there I was running a “Hogwarts-inspired” adventure game, now titled “Magic School Adventure Game” (long story short, I got into a brief legal tussle with Warner Brothers over the use of names and pictures, woof). A student declared they were going to cast a spell. Up to this point we … Continue reading Playing with Youngers: Diving into DICELESS

Playing with Youngers: “Stopping” the Inevitable

"You do what now?" Shipwright. This is part of the “Playing with Youngers” series, but requires no additional context to read and enjoy. Find the rest of the series here. This is something I wrote while working an upcoming project of mine. I don't know if it'll make "the cut" as it's a bit unfocused, … Continue reading Playing with Youngers: “Stopping” the Inevitable
