Colin Anderson (Family Fantasy RPG)

Kids 5e RPG Creator and 5e Homebrewer

Colin has been playing Dungeons & Dragons since his first game in high school, DM'ed by a 3e content creator who went on to start Expeditious Retreat Press. A Ph.D. research scientist by training, COVID kept him out of the lab with idle hands when he decided to write homebrew content for his friend Wildspire Miniatures. In this collaboration, he has written over 200 pages of 5e homebrew content including Guardinal (celestial anthropomorphs) playable races. Also, he is a founding member of The Turtle Guild, a collaborative community of artists, writers, and homebrewers making 5e homebrew content.
During this time, he also began searching for ways he could get his 3 year old son into RPGs, particularly building off of his D&D 5e expertise. Thus, Family Fantasy RPG was created, with the aim to introduce table top role-playing games (TTRPGs) to children in an exciting and engaging way in order to promote problem solving, imagination, and creativity. His children's game is loosely based on the 5e rules used in the most popular TTRPG systems. His first game, Fairies of the Mistglade, have 5 playable character classes for 2 adventure PDFs. He plans to expand his game into two new settings (Champions of the Reef and Dino Riderz) and offer many more adventures this year!
