Here is a photo and short video clip of the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer being setup at this year's Muscular Dystrophy Association's (MDA) summer camp in Idaho. RPG Research volunteers, using the RPG Trailer, preparing to provide adaptive drum circles, tabletop role-playing (RPG), and live-action role-playing (LARP) to children ages 6-17 with Muscular Dystrophy (MD), July 18th and 20th.

1 Photo and 1 Short video clip, from setting up the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer at the Muscular Dystrophy Association's (MDA) Summer Camp in Idaho. Preparing for 21 campers with MD (and their individual helpers, and dozen or so counselors) to participate in drum circles, live-action role-play (LARP, boffer combat style), and tabletop role-playing gaming (RPG, Adventures in Middle-earth D&D 5e).

Using LARP & Tabletop RPGs (and music/drums) for children, ages 6 to 17, with Muscular Dystrophy (MD). Day 1 was just a boffer LARP (based loosely on Amtgard rules, modified for wheelchair participants), in a Middle-earth setting. Day 2 was a basic quest, using water wands, balloons, bubble wands, etc. for any "combat" or "magic", traveling the entire length and breadth of the entire camp/retreat facility (working on writing up detailed article in the near future to share more). It overall went exceedingly well!

We will be posting more photos and videos (pending the camp completion and releases) through our Patreon page to donors, at least 2 weeks for the public, if you want to see the fun in action. 2 days of adventure. Day 1 combat LARP/RPG, day 2, Epic Quest LARP/RPG.

Happy Gaming!
