Learn to Play D&D: First Tuesday of Every Month – Free

by: on October 3, 2017  |  

Join Dungeon Master Brian to find out about Dungeons & Dragons, the fantasy role-playing game that’s making a huge resurgence!

Time: 6:00 pm

Cost: Zilch, Nada, Zip, Zero – in other words, FREE

The first Dungeons & Dragons game was played back when Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson chose to personalize the massive battles of their fantasy wargames with the exploits of individual heroes. This inspiration became the first fantasy roleplaying game, in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This new kind of game has become immensely popular over the years, and D&D has grown to include many new ways to vividly experience worlds of heroic fantasy.

The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends may tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. You can also explore the many worlds of D&D through any of our hundreds of novels, as well as engaging board games and immersive video games. All of these stories are part of D&D.

1:30 – 4:30 PM Learn to Play Star Wars RPG ($5).  Jump right into the action and see how the Star Wars RPG works.  Will you be Force sensitive, or are you on the run from the Hutts?  Are you part of the Rebellion, or just trying to stay on the down low and make some galactic cash?  So many possibilities!  Limited spots, sign up in advance on our Meetup site.

5:00 – 6:30 PM  Dungeons and Dragons Character Creation Workshop (free).  Need help creating a new character?  Too many choices, or confused by the process?  Let our experienced players guide you through the steps to creating the character perfect for your game objectives and play style!  Bring your Player’s Handbook if you have one.  Meeples Games will provide character sheets for your use.

7:00 – 9:00 PM Game Master / Dungeon Master Workshop (Learn to be a DM) (free).  The Game Master / Dungeon Master calls the shots.  They know what’s coming and can either help you out or set you up to fail.  They plan the adventure and guide the game.  Is there a trap door at the entrance to that tunnel?  Does the Ankeg get you in her jaws?  Do you find a Bag of Holding? The Game Master brings the story telling, the excitement, and sets the tone for awesome gaming sessions.  Whether you are new to the game or experienced, come share ideas, see how others lead their groups, and find out more about what it takes and how to get started being a Game Master (GM) / Dungeon Master (DM) at this fun workshop!
