    About the adventure

    Hello new Dungeons & Dragons players! This will be a One-Shot session where I will help a group of new players make their characters and learn the rules of Dungeons & Dragons. There are three main parts of D&D - Roleplaying, Exploration, and Combat. During this you will get a taste of each of these aspects and the joys of D&D. We will be using Discord and a site called to create your characters. I will screenshare from my side to help walk through the process. Lastly, it is never too late to join.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    All you need is a microphone and the Discord program/app for voice, and a account for the Character Creation.

    What I provide

    I'll bring my knowledge of the game and experience and a readiness to teach the game.

    Gameplay details

    For the first bit I will be screensharing DnDbeyond's website and walking you all through character creation. This shouldn't take too long, remember these characters don't need to be perfect or super thought out for the one-shot. The majority of the session will be playing the game!
