“The world needs more heroes. Will you rise to the occasion?”
That’s the question Josh Unruh, founder of The Heroes Guild, beckons Nashville to answer. Founded after a successful GoFundMe campaign, The Heroes Guild is an after-school program that provides a place for Nashville youth to explore role-playing games like Dungeon and Dragons and Mouse Guard RPG. The idea, says Unruh and his group of volunteer Dungeon Masters, is that role-playing games help youth with empathy, communication, self-confidence, critical thinking, and much, much more. The program starts January 11 at the Shelby Community Center, and it’ll run weekly on Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Kids ages eight to fourteen are welcome to play, and adults can get involved by making donations or lending their RPG prowess to a session. So, the question is: Will you rise to the occasion?
