Do you have Dungeons & Dragons books in your stacks?
The popularity of a fantasy game from the 70's might not be on your radar, but it definitely should be and I'm here to tell you why.
Live-streaming shows with millions of viewers like Critical Role and Adventure Zone and the prevalence of D&D in fictional shows like Stranger Things have brought role-playing games (RPGs) back into the spotlight.
It's not just guys hiding in their mom's basement playing all night at a card table with caffeine and sugar to fuel them. More people than ever are playing due to a 2014 revamp, making D&D more inclusive, along with other innovative and creative systems that allow people of all ages an easy entry into a game.
Whether it fits into your library's budget, or not, role-playing games have a multitude of benefits for the people that play them.
In this webinar, I will help you understand what RPGs are and why you should advocate to include them in your library collections and programs.
I will also share some great resources that allow easy access to you and your patrons. I'm a champion of RPGs and I want you to be too!
You will learn:
- A short history of RPGs, women that are at the forefront of their renaissance, and new and popular publications adding amazing depth to the world of role-play gaming
- Some of the many benefits of playing an RPG and how that can be a strength for your library
- How to access free and low cost materials for starting your own campaign or library program
- Where to find RPG support and how-tos when you need them
