What was the RPG Pipeline

The RPG Pipeline was a posting board to keep track of upcoming tabletop rpgs from 2015 to 2021 (this Blogger version began in 2019). It covered new English language ttrpgs and ttrpgs going into crowdfunding.

StoryGuider: A TTRPG to play with toddlers! [Free]

StoryGuider: A TTRPG to play with toddlers! [Free]:


StoryGuider is intended to help you make simple stories with your kid(s) so they can get used to tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs), decision-making, problem-solving, etc.

It focuses only on the RP side of TTRPGs (there are no dice or rule mechanics).  This is so kids can get used to playing as a character and changing the story without having to simultaneously worry about learning mechanics that they are not familiar with.  It is a stepping stone into playing more rules-based TTRPGs.

The files below include a premade adventure (The Magician's Big Performance) with an example dialogue of how it might play out.  You can use this either as dialogue for your game or to get some ideas for how to describe game details on your own.  

The files also include a blank form for you to fill out with your own stories.  Please feel free to use The Magician's Big Performance (or other stories I post) or create your own!

There are also articles on TTRPGkids.com with some additional tips and tricks for this specific type of story set up.  These articles can help with some common issues and developing story-building skills, or please let me know in the comments if you have any questions!

I hope this helps you to introduce TTRPGs to your kid(s) and that you have fun sharing a story and starting a hobby together!
