Skill Points is a zine focused on learning skills by playing role-playing games. It includes contributions from seven game designers, each of whom takes a different approach to the theme. This holistic approach includes RPG content to use at the table, advice on how RPGs can help to develop new skills, and reports from designers who have used RPGs as a teaching method.
