ROLE-PLAYING GAME COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

We have been providing the joy and benefits of role-playing gaming community programs since 1977 at libraries, schools, community centers, parks, online, and many other locations. Including wonderful relationships with Spark Central, School Districts, Parks & Recreation, and many others

ROLE-PLAYING GAME COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

THE ROLE-PLAYING GAME COMMUNITY CENTER

The Role-Playing Game Community Center provides tabletop role-playing games (TRPG) for teenagers 13-17 years old, and adults 18+ years old. During public access hours we offer the community multiple rooms and tables of role-playing games for a wide variety of interests, genres, systems, settings, play styles, abilities, developmental levels, and ages.

ACCESSIBLE GAMING AND ACCESSIBILITY ADVOCACY

We are huge accessibility advocates, and do all we can to make role-playing games more accessible. Not only through training and adaptive devices in our community programs, but also in our active accessibility advocacy efforts to change the RPG industry to be more accessible. In addition to more accessible and adaptive equipment, when our volunteer staffing permits, we provide ASL RPG for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing (HoH), as well as adapted games for Blind and Visually Impaired.

    ROLE-PLAYING GAME MUSEUM

    Depending on donations and volunteer hours, we hope to have the new RPG Museum available by the end of 2022, or early 2023. This is costs us a small fortune to make the property secure enough, and environmentally controlled enough, to fully protect the huge RPG historical collection we have, and make it safe to open to the public. This costs to protect this rare historical collection, and the insurance for a museum collection of unique, hard-to-find, or irreplaceable items is extremely high. We need you donations more than ever just to cover the insurance to make our collection available to the public. We have thousands of items related to the history of all role-playing game formats, many of which are available no where else in the world! Additional donations will enable us to turn this into a fully experiential learning hands-on museum, not just a rare collection. How far we can take it, depends on you. You can help us make the museum better available to the public sooner by donating today!
