  • Pugmire and kids

    I don't know if anybody else has tried this, but since one of the goals of Pugmire was using it as an intro for kids to RPGs, so I tried it out myself. I just thought I'd start a thread about any experiences people had with Pugmire and the Children of Man.

    The only things for myself, based on three kids 7-11, is that they seemed to enjoy/find it funny that dogs think iPads e.t.c. are magic, they just seem to get a kick out of them not knowing the truth. I also have to say the map is a good choice, only a few places in a geographically simple map. I think they get into the world that way, but don't get overwhelmed.

    A couple of staff at the school where I teach have been tossing around the idea of starting an RPG club for our younger students to help them develop their imaginations, empathetic skills, and to consider the points of view of others. I've tossed around the idea of using Pugmire and I'm hoping we can get some games going after Spring Break. Will keep you posted.

      I'm considering running it at the school where I teach too.

        This is currently my biggest appeal to it - running a relaxed child friendly rpg for younger cousins or friend's siblings.

            My daughter had a giant sleepover at my house and I ran this for 6 11-12-year-olds. They absolutely loved it. My daughter is an avid tabletop gamer already (5e, Pugmire, CoC (She love Lovecraft)) so I expected her to love it. Her friends, however, have not played any tabletop RPGs and the response was great. They not only got into their characters immensely (even talking about each other's characters the following morning over breakfast), but they also learned the rules quickly and efficiently and understood the concepts right away.

            Considering this was a game with the idea of getting children involved in tabletop games, it has achieved that goal for sure...at least in my home.


            My daughter was actually going over the idea of a tabletop RPG club at school next year (they were discussing it last year towards the end of the school year). I'm hoping that they allow it as I think it would really be awesome for many kids. I think these games can really help a lot of children get out of their shells, so to speak. A lot of them have hard times expressing themselves, speaking in public, and allowing their creativity and imagination flow. These games allow all of those things to be conquered.

            Second-Chances, I'm interested to know how it goes or is going. Any updates?

              This is really cool to here Eldritch, and I appreciate you sharing it . I'm planning on running a Pugmire came for a friend's whos bringing their kid to join in, so hearing this story gives me hope they will enjoy it . I'm curious what story you told or episodic session - it sounds like a lot of fun ^-^.

              And hell ya - I think games like these help kids like you said with expressing themselves, making friends, etc - so I hope your daughter is successful at getting the school to have a tabletop RPG club.( I can say I wish I woulda had one in school :P )

                Nope. There were bigger fish to fry at the end of the school year, and now we are on summer break. If something happens, I'll post about it,
