About Venture Society

Venture Society is an all-ages, non-violent roleplaying game focusing on building skills related to personal strengths, emotional wellness, social awareness, and communication while having a fun experience. Parents and professionals (therapists, teachers, etc.) can use Venture Society as a fun activity that will also build the child's Social Emotional Learning skills.

In this world of animals, the regions used to be at war with each other. Thankfully brave animals from each region united for peace and formed the Venture Society. The Venture Society is a world wide organization dedicated to helping others and encouraging harmony with your fellow animals, and you're invited to join.

Since the in-game principles of The Venture Society are pulled from Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) skill areas, players are rewarded for using these skills during adventures. The four areas focused on are communication, emotional wellness, social awareness, and personal strengths.

Communication: Examples include following directions & finding solutions

Emotional Wellness: Examples include self-control & calm down strategies

Social Awareness: Examples include listening, empathy, & peer pressure

Personal Strengths: Examples include setting goals & recognizing consequences

Running Venture Society for Children

Venture Society is easy to run and play. This is especially important when playing with children with a tendency to lose focus or get distracted.

Character creation takes only 5 minutes and Venture Society comes with over 20 pre-written adventures. Play can start IMMEDIATELY by using the pre-generated characters and a pre-written adventure. This is a rare thing for roleplaying games as preparation is sometimes the main barrier to entry.

  • Over 20 pre-written adventures making preparation very low
