Intro to Dungeons and Dragons for New Adventurers

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Zoom

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

Be a hero! I'll teach you how to play a fantastic, story telling game fueled by your imagination. This is the place for folks who have never played Dungeons and Dragons before. We will walk through the basic rules for about 20 minutes and learn to play in an hour-long adventure. After the game, I'll answer your questions about how to find your next game and start playing! In our learn-to-play game, a wagon filled with supplies has gone missing. You have been sent to find the wagon or discover what danger it has encountered in the woods. We will meet other characters, explore a wilderness road, and fight monsters. All you need is Zoom and an account with DnD Beyond. DnD Beyond is a free website that helps people play Dungeons and Dragons online. I'll provide a character for you for our learn-to-play game.

Gameplay details

This is a session to learn the basics of the Dungeons and Dragons game. We will spend about 20 minutes learning about the game and keys to playing each character--then we'll jump into a short adventure to learn the rules for trying anything you can imagine: interacting with other characters, using skills to investigate mysteries, and fighting against monsters.

How will character creation work

I will create characters for you to choose. Creating a character is fun--but we won't be learning how to create characters in this session. You do need a free account with DnD Beyond to participate in this learning session. Please set up your DnD Beyond account before the learn-to-play session at so that I can share some pre-generated characters for you to choose during our session.
