What we're about

Dream of being a daring adventurer in kick-ass magical realms? Wish you were an actual elf wizard or a brawny but soft-hearted half-orc? Then come play the world's greatest role-playing game - Dungeons and Dragons!

We run weekly events in Atlanta four nights a week

• Monday and Tuesday at Joystick Gamebar (https://atldnd.com/schedule/JYKSiHeUbIOMhh41KG7s/)

• Wednesday at Noni's Bar and Deli (https://atldnd.com/schedule/RXqBlTqJ1y0VCsKWBAnf)

• Thursday at Bone Lick BBQ (https://atldnd.com/schedule/CJLoteDzHhKDpcT9y0ll)

We try to make our games as inclusive as possible - our goal is to lower the barrier for entry for new folks to get involved in the hobby. New players don't need to bring anything - we provide free dice and character sheets for all first-timers, and all skill levels are welcome!

How it works:

When you show up you'll hear pitches for our regular low-commitment, beginner-friendly one-shot games. You'll pick the game that sounds most interesting to you, your DM and our volunteers can help you with the rules, and you'll start playing right away.

If you enjoy the event and want to come back you can join one of our ongoing campaigns.

For Dungeon Masters:

Anyone that wants to pitch and run a one-shot can just show up any night at 6:00PM to run it. You don't have to schedule with us or do anything in advance, and any DM that runs a one-shot for at least 5 people gets a free drink (or two).

So if you want to meet new people, learn the rules of D&D, or just play some games and have some drinks, come out and join us every wee!
