An imagination and the willingness to have fun. Everything else will be provided. Please read over the character creation section concerning making characters beforehand.

    I have form-fillable PDFs to track your characters, digital maps, tokens, visual aids, digital dice-roller, and everything else we need to play. I bring 30 years of experience GMing games, and a safe, open environment where you can learn to play a great RPG and meet new people!

    Gameplay details

    This is a game of the DUNGEON WORLD system (NOT D&D) Dungeon World is a fun, easy-to-learn RPG that produces the kind of exciting, story-driven sessions you see on TV. All you have to do is describe what your character is doing, and a roll of the dice tells you the outcome! No experience with RPGs is necessary, and you don't need to get bogged down in complex character sheets and rules minutia. The ultimate RPG for beginners (but even long-time players love it!)

Part of the fun is creating a team of adventurers together who share bonds, histories, and rivalries - this game is about YOUR CHARACTER and their adventurers. Before play, you'll pick a character playbook from here: ...and follow some simple directions (provided once you sign up. I'll send you any other links/instructions once you sign up.
