Shiningbrow Posted February 25 Report Share Posted February 25 (edited) So, I'm in China, and the school I work at has After School Activities, and I've offered up TTRPG, naturally using RQG. (unfortunately, only 1 hour per week... and that's not a full hour, only 50mins*). There was an ASA fair to showcase our offerings, and so I showed a few of the pics available, and my dice collection, and had a few sign up then and there. I had 10 students in the first trial day... including a few girls who were quite interested! I've also been told that at least 1 of the students has been telling classmates about it, and perhaps others might want to join... perhaps next semester, where we can have a few different games going at once...??? Unfortunately, the oldest is only in Grade 9 (so, about 14 years old) going down to Grade 6., and I expect to lose a few (especially the Koreans who don't have a grasp on my English... oddly, cos they're usually better)... which is good for the numbers! Only one of them has played any TTRPG before, so this could be fun... I'll run the Starter pack, and probably have 2 players per character (unless a few drop out). Next week I'll introduce them to the possible characters, and get them to choose (before I print the full-colour sheets). I also invested in Andrew Taylor's minis Kickstarter including the pre-gens and Skybull heroes (and a couple of trolls, and ducks...), so hopefully my mate will have finished painting them soon, so they can use them as well. I've also bought a few of Dario's counters... Naturally, within a few weeks, I expect the hangers-on to buy their own dice (very easy to get here! Although, I doubt they'll be paying the 1000RMB ($200) sets 😛 They can also buy their own minis here as well. (China really has the online shopping market sorted!!! I've just bought my veggies and eggs, and delivered in about 30 mins from a local shop). I'm hoping that towards the end of the semester, I can get one or two of them to GM their own game, and also hopefully they can introduce us to other systems (perhaps FFG Star Wars, or Vampire). So, I'll keep you updated as things progress! (*I suppose I could offer it for 3 days per week, but I'm already doing another one on Mindfullness and meditation... and I'm not sure how it would go down, cos normally they want students trying out different things.)
