Patrick is trying to raise funds to teach others in rural Uganda how to play the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Patrick says, “roleplaying can improve on people’s imagination, and whenever I play it I feel confidence in myself and I want to encourage more people to play it.” At thirteen he wants to spend his school holiday sharing his roleplaying experience.
He has been playing Pathfinder‘s Kingmaker campaign, but in the future Patrick hopes to write his own Pathfinder adventures based around local historical stories. How cool would it be to get to experience his culture through playing his adventures?
You can donate at Patrick’s crowdfunding campaign The Village Roleplaying Project, which is part of the Butterfly Project. Paizo donated materials for this, and an in-depth explanation of the project is detailed on the Paizo blog, Teaching Changemakers Using Kingmaker.
If you’re interested in learning to roleplay but don’t live in rural Uganda, check out PaizoCon coming this Memorial Day weekend in Seattle for a weekend of “improving on people’s imagination!”
