My name is Jordaan, the founder of Arledge Comics and lead pin designer. We've been publishing comics and designing enamel pins since 2016 - with twenty-six crowdfunding campaigns under our belt! We're so excited to share our latest design with you all. <3

We chose a mash up of mental health and dice to highlight just how beneficial role play has proven to be for those struggling with mental health. Primarily, it creates a safe, low-risk environment to practice coping skills or to process important feelings and internal conflicts. Our hope in shining a spotlight on this unlikely collaboration, is to bring more awareness to the benefits of role play - specifically TTRPG - and encourage folks to give it a try.

Plus, my fellow ADHD'ers, the shiny math rocks give a satisfying click clack.

The overall design of the pins is twofold. Firstly, I love a good pun. The cadence of ADHD&D or OCD&D is really satisfying. But, secondly, that &D is also a reminder that you're not alone. None of us are.

We believe so strongly in this, that we'll be donating a portion of proceeds from each pin sale to The Trevor Project.

While developing these pin designs, a friend jokingly suggested a "Buddy & D" pin. That's how this little guy came to be. Our community goal pin will unlock once our campaign reaches 50 backers. Once unlocked, it can be added as an add-on either during the campaign or during the post campaign survey.

The design is currently unfinished because the final design will be determined by you!

The dice color will be put to a vote, as will the additional effect: either glitter or glow in the dark!
