Hope you're having a wonderful week so far! So, I noticed that we've started to learn how to play D&D! SO. AWESOME. I play a weekly with this FANTASTIC group of people at a store in Brooklyn, and I'd love to for some of you ladies to come and play!
D&D Encounters is an exciting, weekly campaign that plays out one epic encounter at a time. Each session only takes 1-2 hours to play, so it’s easy to fit your game in after school or work. And each week there’s a new and exciting challenge. You can jump in anytime and it's ok if you miss a week or two or a month!
The group is a mix of new and old players and it's HANDS DOWN the BEST D&D group in the city. No joke. I've played with a lot of groups and always felt like I was being talked down and dismissed. There are female DMs and female players and it's honestly, one of my favorite days of the week.
The neat thing is that some of us make a full night of it and do happy hour and wings at 6pm, play some D&D and then go to a bar around the corner for D&D drink specials and this happens EVERY Wednesday!
The story this Season:
D&D Encounters season 13, the spring 2013 season, begins on April 10 with week 0. The adventure itself – Storm Over Neverwinter– runs 8 weeks from April 17-June 5.
This is an adventure for characters level 3-6. This is a first for D&D Encounters. Players usually start at level 1 so you'll have the opportunity to get a feeling for a more higher level game.
Storm Over Neverwinter takes place in the world of Neverwinter. Just think of it as a world equivalent to Dragon Age/ Lord of The Rings.
The adventure folks facing off against a cult called the Ashmadai, worshipers of Asmodeus. Innocent inhabitants of Neverwinter are being abducted only to be returned to their homes a few days later. The symbol of Asmodeus is branded onto their skin and they bear physical and mental scars. As the adventurers investigate they tangle with numerous evil-doers and eventually are led to Helm’s Hold, a cathedral once dedicated to Helm.
Through the adventure there is a literal storm brewing which threatens Neverwinter’s fragile stability and rebuilding efforts. The thrilling climax of the adventure takes place during the worst of the storm and the adventurers have to face monsters and the elements of the storm.
The adventure is broken into two chapters, four encounters each.
This season’s adventure returns to the familiar linear story-telling, rewards and loot for your characters, and much much more!
See you at Encounters on Wednesday!
