Descriptive creative writing, strategic thinking, collaborative decision-making
The power of the Crystal Temple turns against its own protectors! Are you prepared to save the city of Mirth and defeat the mastermind behind this nefarious plot?
Join our Game Master TC in another episode of Press Start Academy’s roleplaying narrative multiverse for children ages 11 to 14. In this episode, students will be returning to the city of Mirth to investigate the Crystal Temple – now transformed into the Crystal Tower – and stop its rampaging guardians.
Using a gaming system inspired by popular tabletop roleplaying games such as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), you will be developing your own characters and journeying online with the aid of digital Quest Journals, narrative interfaces, and of course, your imagination. Your actions and choices will help shape the story of The Crystal Tower through collaborating with your classmates, navigating challenges, solving problems and defeating powerful monsters that stand in your way.
This five-part adventure is designed to develop creative storytelling, strategic thinking and collaborative decision-making. Our writing focus will be on developing descriptive writing skills, particularly the integration of complex vocabulary and descriptive language. Students will be tasked with chronicling their adventure by describing scenarios and characters they’ve encountered that day by utilizing and practicing the writing skills they learn.
We’re waiting for you, adventurers!
