About the adventure

Are you curious about Dungeons and Dragons, but you're not sure you can commit to play 3 hours every week from now till forever? Want to give it a try without any pressure? This is a 2-hour tutorial for people who have never played D&D. We start at the very beginning, demonstrate how D&D works and why it's so much fun. We'll cover the basics of D&D 5th Edition including: * Why so many dice? When, how and why we roll: ability checks, saving throws, and attack rolls * Ability scores: why are they so weird? * Proficiency, tools, etc * Hit Points, Short Rests and Long Rests * Battling Monsters: pure imagination or miniatures on a table I teach by doing. I will walk you through a simple adventure and demonstrate each idea in context, so you see how it works in a real game. I provide a selection of pre-made characters so you can just pick whatever interests you. I will give you some background on D&D and other games you might enjoy. I'll teach you the basics of online tools like Roll20 and Discord, plus the challenges and etiquette of online games. We'll talk about finding a game that's right for you.
