This project focuses on broadening the horizons of DND (Dungeons And Dragons) and making it for kids of all ages. During the pandemic kids have been uprooted from their usual ways of socialization and typical day to day school life which is crucial for childhood development. Tabletop RPGs ( Role Playing Games) like DND can be beneficial for kids during COVID-19 by giving them a new outlet to explore and learn in the comfort of their home. They’re an opportunity for kids to use and develop skills such as literacy, arithmetic, problem solving, memory formation, creativity and logical reasoning. While they develop these skills kids are also put in a situation of having to communicate and cooperate with others building their social skills. I want to give kids this opportunity by giving them the full experience and making an immersive, fun and digitally illustrated campaign. Going through and creating the storyline, characters, background scenery, maps, and other graphics needed to create a complete experience.
