  • TTRPGkids
    TTRPGkids is a free web resource with over 400 articles about playing, using, and finding TTRPG and TTRPG resources for kids. It includes articles focused on educational applications, librarian support, game reviews, and more. TTRPGkids also publishes educational and for-fun games for young players to be used at home or in school and library programs.

    TTRPGkids will be donating:
    10 physical copies of “Making a Tabletop RPG for YOUR Particular Kid”
    25 digital copies of “Making a Tabletop RPG for YOUR Particular Kid”
    25 digital copies of “Bakers, Charge!”

    “Making a Tabletop RPG for YOUR Particular Kid” is a guide for families, friends, and facilitators to make a tabletop RPG that hones in on what their particular players need and want from the game.

    “Bakers, Charge!” is a tabletop RPG inspired by The Great British Baking show! Create awesome cakes and other bakes within the requirements for each round, and maybe earn some bonuses for later if you help your fellow competitors in their time of need!
  • Indie Press Revolution
    Indie Press Revolution (IPR) is a network of creator-publishers devoted to bringing you the latest innovations in tabletop roleplaying and story games. Launched December 1, 2004 with seven member-publishers, we’ve grown to connect more than one hundred small-press tabletop roleplaying and story game companies to retailers on five continents, conventions, and individual customers.

    They will be working with their Indie publishers and the GameRT IGM committee to selection of 50 games to be donated. These will likely come from the Games for Educators recommendations list.
  • Roll For Combat

    Roll For Combat (RFC) is a 3rd party publisher of Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons material. This year they are donating 10 physical books and up to 200 discount codes good for 30% off items in their store.

  • Almost Bedtime Theater
    Almost Bedtime Theater was founded to introduce families of all kinds to TTRPGs and to create content appropriate for players of all ages. In addition to providing actual plays with kids through our podcast, I design games and adventures with new and younger players in mind.

    Free digital copies of my games are available on Itch.io for anyone who works or volunteers at libraries or in education, or who would like to make the games available in those settings.

    20 physical copies of The Librarian’s Apprentice will be donated to lucky libraries around the world! It is an all-ages solo journaling RPG in which you explore an infinite library with your familiar, discovering places, patrons, and secrets along the way. If you are interested, there is a press kit available here: https://bronsonlowe.itch.io/tla-press-kit
