Special Announcement: Neurodiversity Guild

Hey friends! As some of you may know, I started a group for my up and coming project, the Realms Neurodiversity Guild. The Realms Neurodiversity Guild is a group to help provide support in the Realms for neurodiverse people, or people who have certain neurological or mental health differences such as autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, anxiety disorders, and others. You don’t need to be neurodiverse or reveal any diagnoses to join or participate. Here’s a link to the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/218473752047020/ It’s private, but you just send a request to join and I’ll add you as soon as I see it.

Since this project is relatively new and a work in progress, we are trying something out at Feast of Leviathan - a tentatively named Zone of Meditation. The Zone of Meditation will be a quiet space in the back hallway. The plan is to make it a space for overwhelmed players and staff to decompress. This will be a phone/technology-friendly zone (as some people utilize tech to relax), there will be adult coloring pages and colored pencils, books, playing cards, ear plugs, yarn and crochet hooks, fidgets, a water jug and cups, and blankets and pillows will be provided for warmth and comfort.

This Zone of Meditation is a trial run, so please try it out and don’t hesitate to provide me with constructive feedback or ideas.

Thanks all, and see you at Feast of Leviathan!
