About the Toolkit
Thank you for checking out the TTRPG Safety Toolkit! The toolkit was created as a way to help compile and centralize some of the safety tools that are available in the tabletop space, and is co-curated by Kienna Shaw and Lauren Bryant-Monk.The toolkit is a living resource, meant to change as safety tools and the conversations around them develop and grow. Due to the living and changing nature of the resources and text within the TTRPG Safety Toolkit, we recommend bookmarking the toolkit to your browser instead of downloading the documents to ensure you’re accessing the most up-to-date versions.This is not meant to be a 100% all-inclusive kit, but rather a helpful resource for anyone to make safety tools in games as approachable and easy to use as possible.
