About the adventure

Ever wondered how D&D is played? This quick session will give you all the tools, tricks, tips and knowledge to jump in to playing the world's most incredible Role-Playing game. This will be aimed at those who have never even held a die before and will show you -- at the most fundamental levels -- how the game is played. I will work with each attendee, one on one if needed, so this may take some time. NO QUESTION IS TOO DUMB, so ask away. Be patient as we all work through the questions, sessions, examples and character sheets. In the end, I promise that you'll walk away knowing how to play, and how to take on your first monster with confidence, or your session money back.

Gameplay details

This isn't an actual GAME session, but rather a session for you to see how the game is played, and take time one-on-one to ask questions. THERE ARE NO DUMB QUESTIONS, so feel free to ask anything, and I will go over the details of it with you. We will do a simple battle at the end to practice what was taught.
