About the adventure

Did you watch Stranger Things and think "I wish I could be cool like those middle schoolers"? Good news, you can! You and your friends can be master thieves, looking to rob a high-speed lightning-powered train, and you don't even have to know the rules! This game is a high-action, rules-light experience that will introduce you to the world's most popular role-playing game in the most fun way possible. Built with new players in mind, this session requires no previous knowledge of Dungeons and Dragons, and I'll guide you through a streamlined, fun-forward experience that cuts through the rules and straight to the action. Come prepared to make big, silly, bold moves as we tell this amazing story together!
