Thank you, brave adventurer, for answering the call. In these trying times adventurers can be hard to find, heroes even more so. Heroes come from all walks of life and have their own reasons for aspiring to travel this path. What matters most is the drive and desire to be a force of good in the world, and change things for the better.
Changing the world of table top roleplaying games as we know it is no small task. We are constantly working on new designs for dice and other accessibility friendly gaming aids, as well as working on book translations into braille and audio book format. As a fully altruistic endeavor run by just a few people during our free time, there are so many things to do. We're so grateful for everyone who reaches out to us wanting to help however they can! Here's a few things you can do that would help the DOTS RPG Project be even better:
The most important thing anyone can do is share, share, share!
Help spread the word about the DOTS RPG Project and what we're doing.
The more people that know about us, the more potential volunteers!
Share our website, share our dice models, share our social media pages. Download our info sheets to give to your FLGS, they may want to keep a set of braille dice in the store in case a blind player shows up for a game night!
Fewer than 10% of the blind population uses braille because there are not that many things available in braille for them. The more sighted individuals that learn it, the greater the chances that new products will be developed for braille readers. It may seem like a daunting task, but if you have a player that uses it and has our dice, they will greatly appreciate it. We have plenty of guides to help you learn, and many more resources are available. Plus, it never hurts to expand your horizons and learn something new!
Help us transcribe!
If you know braille already, or feel comfortable enough learning it, we can always use help transcribing various rulebooks into braille text. This task is mainly hand typing book text into a translator program and making sure the formatting is good.
Get DOTS Gear!
Need some new armor (shirts), weapons (dice), insignia (stickers) or other adventuring supplies? We are working on a bunch of fun DOTS Gear that we will have available for purchase soon. All profits from those sales are going right back into dice donations, equipment purchases, and other things necessary to make accessibility in gaming a reality!

Sponsor 3D Printed Dice!
We are always in need of more dice, since they're our most popular item. If you'd like to purchase directly from Shapeways, you can have it shipped to us at checkout! We will make sure it gets in the hands of someone who needs it, as we get requests constantly for people who are unable to afford the dice on their own.
