Dungeons and Dragons: Speed DM-ing

Needs a location

What is Speed Dm-ing?
Speed DM-ing is the opportunity to meet other DnD fans in the area, form parties for mini adventures and games, and find a DM that matches your play style!

For Players
New players are welcome! If you are a person interested in playing DnD, this event is your opportunity to learn a bit about DnD and how to play, as well as meet other players and find a DM that suits your play style!

For DMs
If you are a new or established DM, this is a place to meet potential players and run a one shot to see how y'all vibe. You will also have the opportunity to pitch longer campaigns.

Before you arrive:

  1. For Players and DMs: Review the survey I will send out a week before this event. This survey helps you determine your play style and what is important to you in a game.
  2. For DMs: To show off your amazing game host skills, you have two options
    - Bring any multiplayer tabletop game to teach and host—Munchkin, Slay, Boss Monster, go wild!
    - Or a one-page dungeon to run.
    -- Ideally should be a max four-hour game, so it can be completed before Fat Pete's kicks us out.
    -- DCGG will provide players 2nd-level Wizards of the Coast official pre-generated characters. (You can assign some extra hitpoints to make players less squishy if you like!)

Day of Agenda:
7:00–7:15: Feast and Introductions - Order food and find a seat. What is DnD, and why are all these people obsessed with it???
7:15–7:30: DM pitches - DMs will tell us why they’re a great game master and pitch the one-page dungeon or the game they brought to the adoring crowd. DMs will speak to the survey that was distributed prior to the event to discuss what kind of game they like to run.
7:30–Close: Form groups and play! DMs and players will create groups to play through the one-page dungeons or tabletop games, exchange contact information, and discuss future DnD endeavors.

Why play DnD with the DC Gaming Group?

  1. Community – DMs and players have special channels in the DCGG discord to support each other with all things Dnd from character leveling to building encounters for your players.
  2. Dedicated in-person space - We have our own tavern! DnD with DCGG means you have access to Fat Petes on Tuesdays and Wednesday to play.
  3. Standards - DC Gaming Group is dedicated to valuing the player over the points. Our Community Tenets and Code of Conduct are in place to provide a universal standard of respectful, inclusive play.

What if we don’t have enough DMs for speed DM-ing?
That's okay! We’ll still have a great evening at the tavern with DnD gossip and tabletop games. Speed Dm-ing will be a recurring event every couple months, so fresh DMs can pitch their games at the next event.
