What we're about

Beginners and veterans welcome! If you're D&D curious or want to play D&D and other tabletop RPGs, you will be right at home in this group. Let’s get together and skirt around dungeons, make friends with dragons, and run away from the cloaked figure beckoning us in the tavern. Or maybe I got that mixed up.

Most events will start with character creation and then move on to playing a one-shot. Events will be held weekly on alternating Sunday and Monday evenings, for the most part.

This is a welcoming community with no tolerance for discrimination against any group. Except gnomes. Gnomes can go tinker elsewhere. Just kidding! Seriously, all are welcome, so bring yourself and an open mind to one of our meetups!

If you are interested in DMing one of the one-shots we run at an event, please contact Alaina.

Arlington Edition: Character Creation and One-Shot

The Board Room VA

NOTE: This meetup will use 3rd-level characters, so please level your previous character (we will also have time at the meetup to help out!) or create a new character at level 3 SECOND NOTE: We are still looking for more DM's to help run these games so if you are interested, please message me (Ian) Let's get together and play some D&D! We'll be running a one-shot with third characters in 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. Come with a character prepared or make one together with us! Beginners, we can guide you through the character creation and leveling process, but it might be a good idea to come with a character concept already in mind (race, class, background, etc). The one-shots we are running are beginner-friendly, so don't be intimidated if you haven't played before. Agenda: 6:00pm - Character building 7:00pm - One-shot play 9:30pm - Wrap-up & socialize as a group, compare experiences 10:00pm - Event ends, but feel free to stick around and keep playing if you haven't finished Ian will be there at 5:30pm for anyone who wants to get there early or needs some extra help building and leveling their character. There will be some DMs available to run the one-shot, and groups are capped at 5 players per DM for this one-shot. If you like your group members, feel free to exchange numbers to form a more regular group! While making your character, keep in mind that you will be playing as a part of a team of others and your character should be willing to cooperate with them. If this, for you, means not making an Evil character, take that into account. Also, please stick to the Basic Rules and the Player's Handbook for this one-shot, with no multiclassing. This meetup is intended to be very beginner-friendly. We'll provide some paper character sheets, but feel free to bring your own. If you would prefer a digital character sheet, please bring a device to make/view one on. Also, if you have dice, feel free to bring them. We only have a few extra sets, so the more dice, the better! We are actively looking for DMs! If you would like to DM this one-shot, please contact me (Ian) and I'll give you some information and see if it would be a good fit. The attendee cap will be expanded as we get more DMs, and offering to DM is a good way to get off the waitlist! We look forward to seeing you there!

Character Creation and One-Shot

Wegmans

NOTE: This event will offer both 4th level and 13th level play. If you don't mind, please comment which level you'd be more interested in so that we can get an idea of how many groups for each we'll need. Thanks! Let's get together and play some D&D! We'll be running a one-shot with fourth-level OR thirteenth-level characters in 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. Come with a character prepared or make one together with us! Beginners, we can guide you through the character creation process, but it might be a good idea to come with a character concept already in mind (race, class, background, etc). The 4th level one-shot we are running is beginner-friendly, so don't be intimidated if you haven't played before. Agenda: 6:00pm - Character building (Level 4 Characters) 7:00pm - One-shot play 9:30pm - Wrap-up & socialize as a group, compare experiences 10:00pm - Event ends, but feel free to stick around and keep playing if you haven't finished Even if you already have a character prepared, please plan to be there by 6:45pm at the latest so that we can assign you to a group and play can get started around 7:00pm. Zach and Alaina will be there at 5:30pm for anyone who wants to get there early or needs some extra help building their character. There will be five DMs available to run the one-shots, and groups are capped at around 5 players per DM for this one-shot. If you like your group members, feel free to exchange information to form a more regular group! If you are interested in playing the fourth-level one-shot, pay attention to the following: while making your character, keep in mind that you will be playing as a part of a team of others and your character should be willing to cooperate with them. If this, for you, means not making an Evil character, take that into account. Also, please stick to the Basic Rules and the Player's Handbook, for this one-shot. There will be time to explore other races, classes, and sub-classes at later meetups, but this one is intended to be very beginner-friendly. If you are interested in playing the thirteenth-level one-shot, please come with a character already prepared. Keep in mind that you will be a part of a team, so please avoid making an Evil character. Any official source-books are fair game for making your character. Feats, multiclassing, etc are also okay. You will start with one Rare item of your choice, so choose that before you come, as well. (If you are using the same character from last time and received items during the one-shot, please still only use one item for this event.) We'll provide some paper character sheets, but feel free to bring your own. If you would prefer a digital character sheet, please bring a device to make/view one on. Also, if you have dice, feel free to bring them. We only have a few extra sets, so the more dice, the better! We are actively looking for DMs! If you would like to DM this or a later one-shot, please contact me (Alaina) and I'll give you some information and see if it would be a good fit. We look forward to seeing you there!
