    About the adventure

    Well met prospective adventures! Let's set you on the road to glory and triumph! In this 1-3 hour session, I'll walk you through the process of making your first Dungeons & Dragons character using DnDBeyond or on paper. Once characters are made, we will all go out on a short adventure, in which you'll learn the rules and be able to experience a little bit of each of the three "Pillars" of D&D: Roleplaying, Combat, and Exploration. I've taught many people to play D&D and enjoy helping them discover the magic of the game. Let's find out what you most enjoy and set you up for success in future games!

    How to prepare

    Players need a mic, a computer, a web browser, and an active internet connection. It is preferable that players have a quiet environment to play in. You will need to create an account with Discord. I use Foundry VTT as the game client. I will send you a link to the game server when we start. You may wish to create a Forge Account ahead of time to use Foundry. You do not need to download anything and can run this in your browser.

    What I provide

    I will bring a fully digital experience similar to a 2D dungeon crawling RPG video game. This includes maps, templates, some animated effects, music, etc. You do not need to know how to play ahead of time but if you haven't played before let me know and I will help guide and teach you as we go.
