    My name is Casey Gibson(He/Him), I became a Certified Life Coach due to the love I have for table-top roleplaying games and the positive impact collaborative storytelling can have on people.

    Tabletop Roleplaying games can help with building relationships and can help teach strategies to cope with real-life situations, as well as help to find space for mental health symptoms and engage safely with mental health difficulties among those engaged in the collective narrative. One of my goals is to create a safe and inclusive gaming space for individuals without those spaces. LGBTQ-owned? YesAAILA-Owned? No
