It’s time to share details about the first of the two “The Rolistes Present…” LIVE PANELS which will take place in London at Bad Moon Cafe on Sunday October 20th as part of the charity event “Dungeons & Dragons for Mental Health” (link to Facebook Event).
This first panel will start at 2pm and it will be dedicated to “”Mental Health within RPG Clubs & Events” and will gather several awesome London-based organisations represented by the following panellists:
- The Role Play Haven – David Coulter (He/Him)
David is a Senior Occupational Therapist working with people with LD ASD and Mental Conditions. He is also Community Director of The Role Play Haven which is a volunteer-based, community driven CIC. The Role Play Haven supports the local communities and people through many RPG club branches and events across London and the United Kingdom.
- London RPG Community – Dasha (She/Her)
Dasha is a stem cell scientist, Dungeon Master and organiser for London RPG Community which runs games across London. This includes the rather unique persistent Dungeons & Dragons campaign persistent setting The Kantas Expanse which accommodates a large number of players and multiple Dungeon Masters.
- No More Damsels – Naomi Clark (She/Her)
Naomi is the co-founder of No More Damsels. She organises events encouraging diverse genders to roleplay and DM. No More Damsels also provides safeguarding guidelines and codes of conduct for clubs and conventions. Her projects include a buddy system to help more players over that first hurdle of getting to a game for the first time.
- The Goblin’s Chest – Rupert Greyling (He / Him)
Rupert is an artist, author, creator and owner of The Goblin’s Chest. He works predominantly with children and young people who have suffered trauma and live with various mental health challenges. He currently develops, with a South African NFO, a culturally-sensitive RPG suitable for children in local disadvantaged communities.
As a reminder, these panels will be part of a fundraising event for the mental health charity “Mind”.
