About the First Tour of The Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer Prototype

by Hawke Robinson published Oct 04, 2016 11:25 PM, last modified Jan 19, 2017 01:53 PM
The Wheelchair Friend RPG Trailer Prototype was on the first mini-tour October 6th through 10th, 2016 throughout Washington State.

The Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer prototype was on its first tour just 2 weeks after purchasing it. From October 6th, to the 10th, the trailer covered 998.2 miles, wrapping up with multiple broadcasts and interviews at the local KREM 2 News television station in Spokane.

The goal of the RPG Trailer is to provide free recreation-therapy and music-based services, especially role-playing games, for people with special needs in un-served and under-served areas.

I first used role-playing games as an educational in 1985, and have been using it as a therapeutic modality since 2004. The RPG Trailer makes it more affordable for me to provide these services to people in un-served and under-served areas throughout North America.

The tour schedule was ironed out on the fly, and this page was updated as information solidified closer to the tour date, and any changes that happen on the road.

I found out about this about 2 yrs ago and and got extremely excited!! Do you have to go to hospitals to have people play or can there be other places to park? I'm a paraplegic booby to DnD and wanna play really badly. My only time to play would be at Sakura con (anime con) once a year.

While the trailer was created due to space issues at rehabilitation and related facilities, the other big advantage is the ability to go to rural and remote locations to provide gaming sessions. That is exactly the model, going to Park parking lot, or church or school parking lot, and having folks in the region come to that nearby location. Or for those that have even more serious limitations, pulling up in front of their house, and they can use their wheelchair from their house to the trailer feet away, without having to find a transport to a remote location.
