Intro to D&D for Families
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20, Zoom
About the adventure
**FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!** This is my personally created, fully tested and proven way to get people into D&D. I have taught nearly 100 people how to play D&D this way. This is a 2-hour session. The first hour we talk about basics of the game and make up characters. This is achieved by a limited list of options and a complete walk through sheet that keeps us all moving forward. In this hour we get to choose character ancestry as well as class (main job in the game). We will roll dice to help determine characteristics of characters and will get starting gear. Then it's time for the adventure which is another hour that includes social interaction, exploration, a minor moral dilemma, and some combat. Player characters will make an impact in the world and the players will now have taken their first steps into the world of Dungeons & Dragons.
How to prepare
Have a Roll20 account. Have a Discord account. OR, if the family will be in one room, we'll use Zoom and Roll20. Have a piece of paper and a pencil handy.
What I provide
Everything needed to play.
This is for people who have seen D&D or heard about it but have not played at all. There will be a mix of the three pillar I use as the foundation of role-playing - exploration, social interaction, and combat.
