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.
Let's get together and play some D&D! We'll be running a one-shot with fourth-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 and leveling process, but it might be a good idea to come with a character concept already in mind (race, class, background, etc). If you came to the last event, feel free to use your same character and just level them up to fourth level.
The one-shot we are running is beginner-friendly, so don't be intimidated if you haven't played before.
6:00pm - Character building (Level 3 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 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 information to form a more regular group! If you would like to be matched with people in your area, let me (Alaina) know and I'll try to make it happen.
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. 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.
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 (Alaina) 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!
