Chaosium wants RPGs for kids!

Posted by WJWalton on Sat 01 of Sept., 2012 06:05 PDT
Chaosium (or "THE Chaosium," as we grognards call them), publisher of the original Call of Cthulhu RPG, is looking for submissions for new kid-friendly RPGs using their BRP (Basic Roleplaying) system:
We believe that gaming is a great way for parents to interact with their kids. It is a wonderful way to spend time together, to talk about things in the midst of the game, and the kids may even learn a lesson or two (Little Timmy! Why do you want to cast that booger-eating spell on that innocent bunny? Is that a nice thing to do?).
They certainly have the right idea about playing RPGs with kids, and the need for new games to support that cause.

If you've been kicking around an idea for a kid-friendly RPG, this may be your chance to see it get published! (I may even try to bang out a submission of my own, if I can find the time.) Submission rules and information can be found on Chaosium's website. Good luck!
