Intro to D&D (A)

Learn how to play the latest and greatest version of Dungeons & Dragons! No experience required. Just bring your imagination. 6 players (7 people max, including me) only.

5th edition is coming! Both the starter box and free online basic rules will be released on July 15th, so this is pretty much your first available chance to experience D&D at its most cutting edge. Fifth edition has been touted as super-easy for new and veteran players, with little setup time so it's straight to the action. Especially, since I'll be using the pre-generated characters that go along with the starter box introductory adventure.

I'll actually be running back to back games at the Madison Central Library, study room #111. This meetup is for the first two hours (4 - 6:15pm). The second meetup will take place after a 15 minute break for all new players.

I'm scheduling it that way for a couple reasons - I anticipate high demand and space is limited. Also, smaller groups work better. Especially since this is an introductory session for paper & pencil, tabletop roleplaying game noobs and those familiar with RPGs who want to see what 5e is all about.

    I won't be moving to Madison until the first week of August but looking to join a regular game if you can keep me updated

      Awesome, will the games take place at the same spot? I'm moving near the capitol so it's great that the test game was so close

      The public meetup games will probably be at the central library downtown. Home games are at my house in Sun Prairie (about 25 minute drive east).

    I thought it was a terrific demo of 5th edition D&D. I also enjoyed DMing for this group. Lots of fun!

    Feel like getting a jump start on the rules? Sometimes, it's better to just start playing without knowing any of the game mechanics. It depends on the person. For those curious, here's a link to the free online "basic" version of D&D 5e:

    I know I said I would love to be a part of things, but recent bouts of madness, money, and possible schedule conflicts may come into conflict. Will otherwise add this to my calender and see how things are when they roll round. :(

      It would be cool if you can make it, man. I'm also planning on running a 5e game at my house a week or two later.

    I would love to go to something like this, but could only make it on a Monday or Tuesday. Please give me a heads up if you decide to offer more sessions!
