Program Description

Event Details

Have you ever wanted to slay a dragon, raid a dungeon treasure room, or even save a village from an evil bandit horde? Always wanted to play Dungeons & Dragons, but didn’t know where to start? Join us as we learn the basics of how to get started and play with The Rook Room.

We will learn everything from character creation, to combat, to the basics of storytelling, and more.

This program will include doing some simple math, some mild violence, and imagination. There will be some time following the program to ask questions and meet others interested in D&D.

This series requires a one-time registration. Each session will build on information presented at previous sessions, so please plan on attending as many sessions as possible.
