About the adventure

Learn the ins and outs of building a D&D character! In this workshop, I'll take you step by step through the creation process on, giving you the opportunity to make your character at the same time, or taking notes for when you're ready. The session will take as long as necessary for everyone to feel satisfied with the character they've created (up to 4 hours), and will include time for questions and short explanations of game mechanics.
