    About the adventure

    Want to play Dungeons and Dragons but don't know how? Or maybe you have played before but you don't understand combat or how spells work? I can help. Dungeons and Dragons is an amazing, unique, and fun experience. It is a great creative outlet where you can make friends, gain confidence and experience worlds that you can only imagine. I am an experienced teacher (13 years teaching high school) who can walk you through your first Dungeon and Dragons Adventure! We will start with the basics of Character Creation, talk about Role Playing and what makes a good player, go over game mechanics and then I will take you on a short adventure. My Learn to Play is extremely low stress. I provide learning that is tailored for YOU and what YOU specifically want to get out of the session. I specifically limit these sessions to 3 players so that you can get all the individual attention you need and we can move at a pace that is comfortable for you! If you aren't interested in character creation but just want to jump right in to a game I can also provide premade characters for you to play that range from easy to difficult depending on your comfort. Please join my Learn to Play Dungeons and Dragons session. Dungeons and Dragons could be your gateway into making new, friends, gaining confidence or just having a great time!. When you sign up for this game, not only will I teach you the ways of Dungeons and Dragons, but I will provide you with handouts to help you navigate your way through the rules while you are learning them. I guarantee that with my individualized instruction you will be playing like a pro in no time! So join now!

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Voice will be through Roll 20. Video is optional. Characters will be prepared in DnD Beyond from the link emailed to you. Please install Beyond DND here...

    What I provide

    I will provide access to character creation through DnD Beyond. I will provide maps and tokens for players unless players have tokens they wish to provide.

    Gameplay details

    This game will immerse you into the three tenants of Dungeons and Dragons. Exploration, Roleplay, and Combat. This game contains fantasy violence. We'll be using Roll20 for maps, lighting, resources and more. We'll use a combination of strategic combat using gridded maps, and more narrative, theater-of-the-mind combat when appropriate. Roleplay is highly suggested. You don't have to use a special voice for your character but acting as your character in terms of behaviors, decisions, and values (just to name a few), is essential. Knowledge of the rules is helpful but not necessary. You can learn as you play along. I use lines and veils for safety. Lines and veils set boundaries on content for a game. Lines are hard limits on content. They are things that the players don’t want in the game. Veils are things that are ok to be suggested at but to not be shown.Lines and veils can be adjusted as needed throughout the game. This game contains fantasy violence. I have a zero tolerance policy on the following in or out of game: SEXUAL ASSAULT (OF ANY KIND) RACISM / HOMOPHOBIA / SEXISM
