Roll to befriend the dragon and rule the world
Greetings adventurers and heroes. The world of Dungeons and Dragons needs some new adventurers for a new campaign. There are so many things to explore and your imagination is the limit. Roll a Nat20 and join this D&D meet-up. Please note that this event is aimed at kids between 13 and 17. There are other events aimed at adults, so be sure to check out an age-appropriate group before trying to join this campaign.
A standard Dungeons and Dragons game is an open-ended role-playing game. You make your own character, play with your friends and control your own character while the Dungeon Master tells you what you see/can do and what happens when you decide on an action. When you create your character at first, you can choose between 12 basic types of character: Barbarian, bard, cleric, druid, fighter, monk, paladin, ranger, rogue, sorcerer, warlock and wizard. Each type of character has its pros and cons.
You will use different types of die, up to the 20-sided dice that you can roll. If you get a Natural 20 (roll a 20), you get the best choice and option. A Natural 1 is the worst roll. Every character has different types of "bonuses" that you can add to your rolls to enact more damage.
This meet-up is for beginners, and if you don't know what you're doing, then this is the best place for teens to start. The Dungeon Master is a great leader and is very experienced in helping newbies navigate their way through the new world of DnD. You don't need to know anything to participate. Everyone has to start somewhere. Join in, question everything and make some new friends along the way. And while you're exploring, make sure to befriend every creature along the way. Who knows which creature is going to be able to save your team!
This meet-up starts at 10am on Saturday August 6th at Willeton Library. It's a fairly short campaign, and should only last for about 2 hours. After you have started playing, then it seems like you're going to want to keep going to different campaigns as well. Get the kids hooked early, and one day you might be able to play a campaign with your kids!
