Well ain’t that something…

We also hear more and more from parents, educators, and mental health professionals who encourage Dungeons & Dragons because it’s not screen-time. The game’s about social interaction that builds certain skills like teamwork. Kids get an experience that they want to play and they get to tell stories and come up with amazing ideas. It doesn’t feel like learning or the normal things schools would shove down your throat. It’s gone full circle from a thing that was even demonized to something that’s now lionized.

Emphasis mine. I’m just gonna leave this here for anyone who might wander by.

Here’s the article.

BTW, Stranger Things is great but definitely in PG-13 territory.  Parents take note.

September Special Event!

On September 19th, join us for a very special teen roleplaying session where we will leap from the rooftops, swing from the chandeliers, and cross swords with the most dastardly villains imaginable. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we are going to introduce you to the weird, wonderful world of 7th Sea.

7th Sea is a different kind of roleplaying game. It is collaborative storytelling at its finest. In 7th Sea, you don’t ask whether you succeed or fail at a task. You only need to decide how awesome you want to be. It is a very different play experience from what we’ve offered before in the teen roleplaying program, and probably different from what you’ve experienced in the past.

Curious? Come on out, grab a character and prepare yourself for a whirlwind of action, romance, and mystery. Prepare yourself…for 7th Sea!

7th Sea is a tabletop roleplaying game of swashbuckling and intrigue, exploration and adventure, taking place on the continent of Théah, a land of magic and mystery inspired by our own Europe.

Players take the roles of heroes thrown into global conspiracies and sinister plots, exploring ancient ruins of a race long vanished and protecting the rightful kings and queens of Théah from murderous villains. It is a world of sharp blades and sharp wits, where a cutting retort can be just as deadly as a sword’s point.
