I had heard of Dungeon Critters before in recommendations and had been meaning to grab a copy when… I saw one at my local library! Needless to say, I checked it out immediately and had a great time reading this awesome tabletop RPG-vibed graphic novel together with my kid!
I had a great chat with Allen, author of Whispers of the Voidbringer, about his experiences picking up D&D and introducing TTRPG’s to his family. We talked about the influences his children have had on the book, born from a want to share a podcast-like story with his kids, and how to kick off the TTRPG experience with kids!
Princesses of the Pizza Parlor by Maikel Yarimizu is the story of and uncle running a tabletop role playing game for his niece and her tween friends. It’s a fun tale that follows their character’s adventures in the game… and the drama between the players outside of the game as they navigate their friendships. I enjoyed the read, and I hope you and your kids do too!
Whispers of the Voidbringer by M. Allen Hall is a TTRPG-inspired novel that gives a great example of kids playing D&D. It follows the epic adventures of a group of player characters as they navigate a classic fantasy world in danger…. And it also follows the parallel journey of the kids playing these characters as they navigate each other, learn the game, and experience this awesome quest. It was a fun read, and I hope you enjoy it as well!
I usually review games, BUT Roll Dice, Build Character by Mark Hasen seemed like a great fit for the TTRPGkids site – it covers the benefits of kids playing TTRPG’s and discusses some of the concerns or questions that parents may have. This is a great read for anyone on the fence, just starting out, or trying to convince other parents to let their kids join the table!
