A powerful wizard has had it with Yuan-ti incursions into the plane of elemental air. How should this quest-giver express his frustration and call the party to action?

Many players hesitate to role play because they feel everyones' eyes on them while attempt to change their voice. A simple puppet can unlock role playing in your group by moving the spotlight to the puppet which represents the character.

Mouthful Puppets are easy to customize, make, and use. They work well in person or over video conferencing. They always look ready to talk, maybe more than they really should.

Mouthful Puppets are held with two fingers and a thumb. Anyone can make the mouth move or head turn. A DM can hold two puppets at the same time to role play a converstion. Puppets also stand on their own, so they can remain in the scene when you use your hands for other things, or be positioned on a map like minis.

Aside from game night, DMs can use Mouthful Puppets as inspiration when writing dialog, plot points, or boxed text. Does this sound like something a King's agent would say? Try it!
