Chickadee Tales, LLC
Chickadee Tales, LLC is a tabletop roleplaying game (TTRPG) designer, offering transformational games fostering healthy relationships through shared storytelling and critical problem solving. Instead of mechanics about destroying and looting found in so many TTRPGs, we want players' toolsets to facilitate healing, building, and organizing community. Players should interact with fully dimensional characters and scenarios to feel clever for problem-solving without dice rolling/randomization mechanics.
We take our collaboration with contractors seriously and commit to a Living Wage that values our collaborators’ quality of life.

Kelly is a self-taught artist from the Philippines who, at the moment, spends 25% of her time being a college student, and 75% of her time freelancing as an illustrator. Inspired by the art of Ghibli films, maximalist decor, and the idea of living in a forest, her goal is to make colorful and comforting art that people will enjoy looking at. When she isn’t busy with school or art, she spends hours crocheting, baking cookies, and mulling over massive jigsaw puzzles.
