About the adventure

If you've never played Dungeons & Dragons before, you can learn to play in the comfort of your own space, with a DM well-versed in teaching the game. All our Dungeon Mastering services are all-inclusive. Miniatures, maps, books, character sheets, terrain, and dice are provided as necessary. With 30+ years of experience in D&D, let us do all the prep work so you can sit back and enjoy the game. This listing is for an live introductory session where you can learn to play, or a custom live one shot for any skill levels. Buying for someone else? D&D makes the perfect gift for the person who has everything! I can send you a printable certificate for you to give out as a gift. All new players get a free set of dice to keep! Note: This is not for online play. This is to reserve a live session for when the COVID19 crisis has abated. By reserving now, you save 10% off our regular adventure pricing.

How to prepare

While it's always helpful for players to know a little bit about D&D before playing, they really don't need anything. I provide easy-to-use, pre-made characters if they don't want to make their own.

What I provide

I bring everything: a playing mat, miniatures (both painted and 2D printed), pencils, dice to keep, terrain, character sheets, a laptop, a speaker (so you can hear the sound of a fireball being cast), candy (for killing monsters, roleplaying, and being funny), and everything else necessary.

Gameplay details

Most one-shots require about a half hour of explaining the rules, getting used to your characters, and learning how to roll dice. All new players get a free set of dice to keep! We jump right into a light-hearted story with a little roleplay, a little exploration, and a little combat that's fun for everyone. Only in ongoing campaigns would we elect to do complex planning or deeper stories. The goal is to get the whole live D&D experience you hear about online, without lots of prep time and in a 4 to 5 hour block. Possibly with snacks. Oh, and I give out candy for killing monsters and making jokes. :)
