What TTRPGkids does for the TTRPG community

For the past 2 years, TTRPGkids has provided tips and tricks articles for facilitators and game runners, advice for teachers using TTRPGs in the classroom, game reviews so parents and caregivers can see what they’re about before trying them with their kids, informative talks and panels at conventions to connect off the web, and boosts for indie creators who are trying to get their work out into the world.

All of this is avialable for free

Free to parents and caregivers. 

Free to teachers.

Free to creators.

However, it hasn’t been free to run.

Costs for running TTRPGkids

However, I do incur costs in the form of site fees, travel, and time spent creating and curating the over 250 articles currently posted on the site.

Free indie game reviews to support creators
Industry standard for an article is $100 - $300, which is beyond what many indie creators can afford. 
TTRPGkids writes reviews for free to support these awesome games.

I don’t get paid for this, and I’ve been covering costs myself.  It’s not really a sustainable model for the rate things are growing and the increased need for the community, and I really want to do more with this too since it is helping people.

To maintain and grow these efforts, I’m asking for your support in keeping TTRPGkids rolling.

How you can help!

The goal for this Crowdfundr is to cover basic costs for TTRPGkids so it can be sustainable, fund convention expenses so I can grow TTRPGkids beyond social media, and support physical prints for one of the games to facilitate long term income.

Your contribution helps grow the expanding community of youth-focused TTRPG creators and gets more TTRPG resources out there for kids, schools, and families.  Your support is much appreciated, I hope you enjoy the rewards below, and… happy gaming!

And… what rewards you can get!

Inspiring Friends who make a $5+ donation without a reward get a special thank you on the TTRPGkids site, plus, I’ll put their donation towards funding community copies of my games!

Treasure Seekers can grab a TTRPGkids digital game or a pre-order for my first physical game print!  The physical prints are expected to be fullfilled by November 2023.

Collaborative Creators who are looking to get their games to conventions but can’t travel can nab an advertising spot at the 2023 TTRPGkids booths and farmer’s market stands!

Monthly Mages who support 1 month worth of site fees get a special thank you on the TTRPGkids site AND a shout out on social media during the 2024 month that they supported!

Generous Dragons who make a donation covering the industry standard rate for a game review article or resource post ($200) get a VERY special shoutout on the TTRPGkids site, featuring a picture of them or their work (subject to review) AND a shout out on social media thanking them for their support!

Funding breakdown for this campaign

  • $295 to cover a block of 10 ISBNs
  • $225 for remaining funding to print Bakers, Charge!
