Free resources for school D&D clubs

Roleplaying games including D&D can have a huge positive impact on the lives of children, helping them develop social skills, problem solving and creativity. School D&D clubs help kids realize these benefits in a safe space. 

Unfortunately, budget to support school D&D clubs is often limited.

Fortunately, there's a range of free resources out there from charities and creators that support school D&D clubs.

I make print at home products that are designed to make play easy and more immersive. I offer all of my paid products with a free limited license for use in school D&D clubs. I'd also be thrilled to support the use of my products for school D&D clubs by providing any training needed.

Check out my Resources page for links to resources that are free to everyone, including accessible rules reference cards that can make it easier for kids and educators to understand the D&D rules and jog their memory quickly.

"We used DandDMadeEasy reference cards in our school D&D club for 14-18 year olds and the players loved them! They were super helpful for an easy reference guide, especially for our novice players. It's time consuming for anyone to flip through the Player's Handbook to find an answer and the reference cards cut that time out so they could play more and search less.
