Program Description

Event Details

Dungeons & Dragons is a role-playing game set in worlds of swords and sorcery where players use their imaginations to tell a story and create an adventure together.  We usually get together on the third Thursday of each month to play.  Advanced registration is required so we know how many Game Masters/Dungeon Masters we will need to provide the best experience for all players.  

New players are welcome!  If this is your first game, we can provide a pre-generated character for you to use.  Or you can create a 1st level 5E character and bring that with you.

We are always looking for more Dungeon Masters. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Dennis.

Note that you do not have to commit to playing multiple games.  Please only sign-up for sessions you plan to attend.  If your plans change, please remember to cancel your registration to free up a spot for others to play.

Although Dungeons & Dragons is recommended for ages 12 and up, this program is geared for adults.
