Our Half Term DnD Club for Teens crowdfunding project went live this morning. Read on to find out more about the project and why you should support us.
Character Creation Roleplaying is based in Plymouth, UK and is the brainchild of Chris Nicholls, senior DM and Chaos Wrangler. He is aided and abetted by DM Alex, Keep of the Dice. They work best when supported by the Empress of the Office (admin, general dogsbody, and writer) and an army of parent victims (volunteers, I meant volunteers).
Chris started by offering fun and educational DnD and roleplay game sessions to home educated children. This has now grown to include afterschool clubs and holiday clubs. We are hoping to expand our offering further and reach as many new players as possible.
We play in tables of six to ensure that groups are not too big and unwieldy. This requires two DBS checked adults with experience of gaming and working with young people aged 12 -16.
We provide wrap-around care from 8.30 until 17:30 and provide a healthy breakfast, snacks and lunch to every child. This requires fresh food and someone to prepare it so that our game leaders can focus on the games and the needs of the players.
Unfortunately, venue hire, insurance, wages and resources are not free and without support, the holiday sessions we offer would be out of the reach of many of those who would benefit most from the relaxed social interaction, creative thinking, problem-solving and general confidence-building that comes from well-run DnD and other roleplaying games.
£1600 pays for six young people to experience the benefits of DnD for a whole week.
Every additional table will cost slightly less as the venue, food prep staff and some of the resources will already be in place.
The venue that we are able to call home can easily house three tables if we can get the funding and the experienced DMs.
And, that is where you come in. Every donation, no matter how small helps us to help teens in our community to socialise, have fun, and take part in something different.
