What advice can educators provide for teaching game rules to players? How about using games to enhance education? And what about the portrayal of education in games? This panel covers it all and more. Caleb Stokes is an educator and RPG writer. He frequently uses games in the classroom for a variety of purposes, and he recently worked with Arc Dream to publish No Soul Left Behind, a campaign book for the game Better Angels set in a charter high school. Ross Payton has written extensively for Monsters and Other Childish Things, and he’s been teaching rules to players for twenty years. Steve Radabaugh is a high school teacher and creator of app games like Dungeon Marauders and the upcoming dice game Fey Ball. Dan from RPPR was also a panelist.
Caleb’s Better Angels campaign, No Soul Left Behind (formerly known as The Spared and the Spoiled) is complete. We decided to take a look back, discussing the origins of the campaign, our favorite moments, and the dubious morality of the protagonists. The Kickstarter for the campaign should be up soon and we’ll let you know when it is!
