Making a Tabletop RPG for YOUR Particular Kid, is guide for families, friends, facilitators, and other creators to make their own kid-specific TTRPG stemming from all the articles on TTRPGkids!

TTRPGkids is an ENnie awarded web resource that’s ALL about using TTRPGs with and for kids, and I want to share that XP with you so you can make your own games and explore this wonderful world of all-ages TTRPGs with your own children, classes, or readers!

Based on my experience playing and reviewing over 100 all-ages TTRPGs from other creators to see what does and doesn’t work, writing 50+ of my own kid-friendly TTRPG titles, publishing close to 50 tips and tricks articles to help families and creators with gameplay and design, and interviewing dozens of experts from the all-ages TTRPG community, I am condensing all that knowledge into one zine-style book for your easy use.

This guide book will walk you through the steps needed to create your own setting, mechanics, and overall game that hone in on what is actually going to be interesting, manageable, and needed in a TTRPG for young players.

Making a Tabletop RPG for YOUR Particular Kid: A Guide for Families, Friends, and Facilitators will be a 50+ page zine-style book (final page count dependent on stretch goals) broken into focused sections that cover:

  1. What is a TTRPG?
  2. Why play TTRPGs with kids?
  3. Getting on the same page
  4. Picking a setting
  5. Making player characters
  6. Creating NPCs and encounters
  7. Choosing mechanics
  8. Actual gameplay
  9. Introducing applied elements (stretch goal additional chapter)
  10. Example game frames (stretch goal additional chapter)

Rewards

You can get a copy for yourself or help bring this project to life so others can use this resource to help kids with TTRPGs! 

Pricing for this campaign will reflect the cost of the base version but will include any stretch goals at no additional cost – if stretch goals are achieved, the post-campaign price for the book may be higher than what’s listed during initial funding, so reserve your copy in advance!

Stretch goals

This project has an awesome team of stretch goal writers and a wonderful artist, Leo Assis, as part of the stretch goal team!  I also plan to add additional chapters and run a 1-hour webinar walkthrough of making a TTRPG provided that goals are met!  Here’s to adding more to the resource!

Thank you for your support!
