What we're about

Calling all black girl nerds! Valkyries is a group for black women interested in playing tabletop RPGs together! Popular tabletop RPGs include Dungeons and Dragons, Shadowrun, Call of Cthulu, and more. The group will meet primarily in Oakland, but other locations can be spun out as well. All skill and experience levels welcome.

The hope is that this group becomes a place for black women to plan/host their own RPG sessions, so feel free to propose something and I'll give you access to create your own games.

Looking forward to slaying (dragons, that is)!

Dungeons and Dragons: Storm King's Thunder (Remote players welcome!)

• What we'll do This is an ongoing long-term campaign, that will take place on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month. We'll be playing "Storm King's Thunder", a D&D hardcover adventure that spans levels 1-11. • Who's eligible? Everyone from near and far! We're going to try out *remote players* too, so please leave a comment if you will be joining remotely and I'll set that up. This game is regularly scheduled, but feel free to drop if you want to try it out. We will never turn away a Valkyrie! Similarly, if you decide it's not for you, that's fine too! If you are playing remotely, please join the game on Roll20 using this link: https://app.roll20.net/join/4167532/TmcCHA • What to bring Just yourself! If you already have an Adventurer's League character, feel free to bring it, but we will provide characters, dice, and pens for new players. • Important to know This is a group that is friendly to beginners but all experience levels are welcome. We strive to create a safe, inclusive gaming environment where everyone can enjoy their time together. -------------------------- Storm King's Thunder: "Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization as never before. Hill giants are stealing all the grain and livestock they can, while stone giants have been scouring settlements that have been around forever. Fire giants are press-ganging the small folk into the desert, while frost giant longships have been pillaging along the Sword Coast. Even the elusive cloud giants have been witnessed, their wondrous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate. Where is the storm giant King Hekaton, who is tasked with keeping order among the giants? The humans, dwarves, elves, and other small folk of the Sword Coast will be crushed underfoot by the onslaught of these giant foes. The only chance at survival is for the small folk to work together to investigate this invasion and harness the power of rune magic, the giants’ weapon against their ancient enemies, the dragons. The only way the people of Faerun can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them. Stand with or against the giants in this adventure for the world's greatest roleplaying game."
