About this project
Critical Role Activity Pages by @wendydoodles are now available!
A WILD CONTRIBUTOR APPEARS!
Monte Cook is well known for his work with many game companies, but recently had huge success with his game No Thank You, Evil! an RPG designed for families and kids as young as five late last year. After just launching his Kickstarter for the Cypher System, we asked if he'd be interested in helping spread reading and activities to inspire kids to game and we're happy to say he said yes!
Don't have money to contribute? That's fine! You can still help us bring the ABCs of RPGs to the world! We have 3 really beautiful BOOKMARKS to give EVERY SINGLE BACKER if we reach our goals!
Welcome Guardians and Tiny Adventurers everywhere! Grab your Dice and LETS READ!
I love reading books to my kid. However, I've had a hard time finding a book that will allow me to share my favorite hobby with my favorite person.
So after looking, I decided that if I couldn't FIND a book that I wanted to read to my little Rogue, I would go out and MAKE one instead. That is when I met Caleb Cleveland and together we are excited to bring this project to you, here on Kickstarter.
We want to offer a collection of Reading and Activities that the entire Adventuring Party can enjoy!
The ABCs of RPGs includes a rhyming ABC book and a complementing Activity Book.
The ABCs of RPGs Children's Book is a 28 page Full Color Hardback that explores wonderful concepts from Adventure to Zeal!
Want to see what's inside?
And those are just the first 4 Letters!
Stories and reading are what unlocks a child's imagination, and the most important thing you can bring to a session is your Imagination. While there are a few RPGs made for younglings, rarely has the world of Role Playing Games been explored in that magical power that a children's book has with kids. The ABCs of RPGs children's book is a fun way to show our loved ones the fantastic and wonderful parts of what makes role-playing games so great.
Children and Adults Activity Book
The ABCs of RPGs Coloring/Activity Book is a wonderful 40 page Black and White Activity Book filled with TONS of different activities for anyone who enjoys:
- Paper Dolls
- Brad Dolls
- Face Masks
Where else will you find a Kobold Paper Doll?
Or Color Kids and their Monster Friends?
As with any great Kickstarter, we have a ton of great rewards to share with you! Not only copies of the book, but signed prints, and even opportunities to donate books to an establishment in YOUR AREA!
Little Lending Library
Hunters Books has partnered with Little Free Library Master Builder Douglas Chadwick to build a hand made, custom designed library for this Kickstarter ONLY.
Our Tiny Tavern is complete with Registration plaque from the LittleFreeLibrary.org, which has brought the joy of providing FREE READING to children all over!
Place them in your yard, office, or donate it to a location of YOUR choice (installation is not included).
The Literacy Club
We are also working with Jean Chadwick, the co-founder of The Literacy Club who last year donated over 400,000 books to neighborhoods around the US including Libraries, Police/Fire Stations, Homeless Shelters, and Community Centers.
If you contributed to the $150 pledge, The Literacy Club will help facilitate your donation to a Little Free Library Steward in your own area.
The Literacy Club has connections with +40,000 Little Free Libraries Stewards around the world. With that many Little Free Libraries we can almost make sure that one will be close and eager enough for your donation.
Super Fun right?! We wanted the The ABCs of RPGs to be a great experience for both parents and kids who are looking to explore not only the magic, mystery, and joy that RPGs bring into our lives; but share it with others as well!
ABCs of RPGs: Sing-A-Long Songs!
What better way to make you smile then with a sing-a-long? We approached The Library Bards to make a "ABCs of RPGs" Sing-a-Long for our project as one of our stretch goals, and they said yes!
The Library Bards are a nerd parody band consisting of Bonnie Gordon (ABC's The Quest) and Xander Jeanneret (TBS' King of the Nerds). They take Top 40 hits and transform them into the nerdy versions they should have been in the first place!
Make sure to check out other GREAT stretch goals we have available as well!
Is the Book Done?
We want the Books to be as affordable as possible, which means we need to get a certain amount of backers to print a minimum run of both of these publications.
Why should you trust us to deliver this wonderful book to you on time?
- The Books are completely written
- Every page has been sketched out.
- We have prices locked in from our printer(s)
- We have a contract with a fulfillment house and quotes on postage
We just need YOU to help make it happen!

Risks and challenges
While Kickstarters always provide new and unique challenges. Hunters Books has been in the publishing industry for over 5 years, with over 20 products currently available in stores. We've run two successful projects already with only 1 month of delay in delivering content to our backers.
Caleb and Ivan have the entire book planned out, and simply need to execute the project. We are working with well known printers, and established 5013c Charities like The Literacy Club and The Little Free Library organization which has built and organised over 40,000 of these small free libraries since 2009 around the world.
