I had the pleasure to chat with Peter about his background in applied RPGs, especially with autistic youth, and his new game, Caravan Endures! We talk about helping your players grow, gentle fantasy RPGs, and so much more.
Critical Core is a therapeutic tabletop RPG built off of D&D 5e mechanics! With its intuitive format, focus on social interactions, and clear facilitator guide, this is an awesome TTRPG and tool for players to have fun while building skills and for parents, educators, and facilitators to be able to smoothly provide a welcome gaming environment.
I had a wonderful talk with Adam, about both Game to Grow, a non-profit organization that uses therapeutic gaming to help youth, and Critical Core, a 5e based game specifically designed for building social skills and confidence through gaming. This was a great chat, I learned quite a bit about educational gaming, and I am happy to share our discussion with you!
