What we're about

Welcome to DnD Club
You want to play Dungeons and Dragons. You’ve watched Critical Role, you bought the Starter Kit, you’ve created multiple characters...and you’re stuck. You are in the right place. I started this meetup to create a welcoming, safe, and encouraging community for tabletop roleplaying. We now have a international community of over 2000 players and we're coming to London!

This hobby can seem very difficult to access, and getting started can feel impossible. This group is about eliminating those barriers and creating a wonderful place for both new and experienced gamers.

Our mission:
Heroic immersion: Regardless of the system or DM, we want you to feel as if you are walking the forests of Mirkwood, through the world of Exandria, or into the dungeon of a Mad Mage. We immerse players, new and experienced, in classic, heroic adventures, in the theme of Tolkien, Lovecraft, Howard, and many more...every single session.

Reliability: Not only do our games provide an excellent experience, they are reliable. We run at least 10 games per month, and our player attendance rate is above 95%. Additionally, we have a team of 30 DMs working together to ensure that we never cancel an event.

Player Driven: Our games are player driven, putting you and your character at the center of the plot. Your choices will decide the outcome: from heroic victory to an untimely end. We encourage adventure feedback and try to make each session even better than the last.
D&D is an awesome experience, and my tables are open to all players. I'll teach you everything you need to know, and everybody we play with is very welcoming to players interested in checking out the hobby. I bring all the essentials: minis, dice, play-map, etc.

Tickets:
Here's the secret to this group: we pay our DMs. Because of this, sessions run on time, with prepared facilitators, and typically full tables of players.
Accordingly, all players are required to purchase their seats in advance to each session. Because preparation by the DM and other participants is impacted by the number of players, ticket reservations are final, no exceptions. Also, please do not "drop in" to the event. Cash is not accepted at the table.🔥🔮⚔️

Why on earth would I pay to play an RPG? 
Three reasons: reliability, quality, and immersion. Because all our players have "skin in the game" they are much more invested. Because we compensate our DMs, they are always on point with an awesome adventure.

I personally vet each DM and the DM team upholds rigorous quality standards of play. 

Quality Standards: 
a) We make sure all participants have the materials they need, whether in person or online.
b) Sessions occur on schedule, at the same date and time each week, unless all participants agree to a new date and time. We've run over 1,600 sessions and had essentially zero cancelations.
c) Our players realize this is a cooperative endeavor. Mutual respect and cooperation is what we expect of all participants. DMs are trained in how to "share the spotlight" and no player is allowed to derail the experience.
d) In game themes of sexual assault, rape, or racism are expressly prohibited. Obviously these things are also prohibited between people as well.
e) DMs are highly responsive to feedback. We encourage all players to message either their DMs or me personally to ensure that each experience is awesome!
f) Disruptive behaviors by participants are first resolved in game, and then addressed by DMs out of game. DMs may remove players from sessions if needed to ensure a quality session. (To date we've never had to do this because players tend to work really well together.)
g) If there are any issues regarding DMs, please contact me (Adam Scott). If any of these standards have been broken, I will provide a full refund for your session.
h) DMs are expected to be prepared and begin on time. They are expected to deliver a quality experience on the platform of their choosing (typically roll20 and discord), every session.

About your host:
My name is Adam and I’m a teacher by day and RPG game organizer by night and weekends for people who want to play and learn about the hobby.

I learned how to play role playing games virtually as soon as I could roll dice and haven't looked back. A huge fantasy and science fiction fan, I've engaged in immersive storytelling for 20+ years, both with friends and in my classroom as a career teacher. All are welcome at my table to learn the basics of role playing games through Dungeons & Dragons. I also provide advice to my community of over 24,000 gamers through my instagram account.

We look forward to having you at the table.

Campaign Overview:

It has been a year since Brenda Dwindal was made the Queen of the Empire, The Cerebus Assembly has been re-organized and the city of Rexxentrum is becoming a new Beacon of Hope and Prosperity.
This city of intrigue is located in the Marrow Valley and is the seat of power for the Dwindal Empire. Rexxentrum is a huge, sprawling "metropolis of multitudes of towers and chimneys of all heights and sizes," on rolling hills still visible under the structures built upon them.

It is the largest city in Wildmount and a center of many kinds for the empire: the political seat of power; the heart of arcane study; and a cultural hub. Not unlike in Rosohna, the wealthiest denizens live in the center of the city, while poorer people and families live towards the edges, some outside the protection of Rexxentrum’s walls. It is a colorful city, of cobblestones and arcane lanterns, of connected rooftops and street performers; but it is also a city with a heavy military presence.

Join the adventure to seek fame, fortune and Legendary Status amongst the Hall of Heroes who have come before.

D&D 5ed Ghosts of Saltmars, Table Full

Please private message the DM if you are interested in being on a waiting list or hear about open seats at other time slots.

ROLL20 AND DISCORD ONLINE GAME. Adventure will be played to completion online. Beginners welcomed and encouraged! The DM will help answer questions about required platforms.

Adventure overview:

Nestled on the coast of the Azure Sea is Saltmarsh, a sleepy fishing village that sits on the precipice of destruction. Smugglers guide their ships to hidden coves, willing to slit the throat of anyone foolhardy enough to cross their path. Cruel sahuagin gather beneath the waves, plotting to sweep away coastal cities. Drowned sailors stir to unnatural life, animated by dark magic and sent forth in search of revenge. The cult of a forbidden god extends its reach outward from a decaying port, hungry for fresh victims and willing recruits. While Saltmarsh slumbers, the evils that seek to plunder it grow stronger. Heroes must arise to keep the waves safe!

Our team of DMs does its best to make sure you feel comfortable at the (virtual) table and learn all the rules you need without bogging down the story.

Table 2 D&D 5e Campaign Wildemont D&D 5e Campaign

Campaign will meet weekly at the same day and time (with exceptions for DM illness/emergencies).

Campaign Overview:

This campaign is set in the "Wildemont" world of Critical Role!

The Greying Wildlands long forsaken since the time of Calamity. A harsh and desolate environment home to the desperate, the resolute and those seeking independence of Empire find themselves here. Multiple peoples live in close proximity within the region. This unique situation has afforded the regions of Empire and City State a buffer of the dangers of this mostly unknown and wild lands.

In the Glasstail Peak resides Keothi "Horncarver" Ogolakanu. She has become obsessed with the idea that the Calamity never truly resolved itself. She fears the unwilling City States to bolster and better understand this region puts all of the lands at risk. She uses her resources to gather those to her and seek out the nature of how things became the way they are and learn from these understandings.

Word has come that all the major players of this area have either shut their gates, moved communities or even abandoned entire territories. Kravaraad, the legendary volcano lies dormant unexpectedly. Perhaps the greatest of concern is the sudden extreme temperature changes that have everyone wondering what could possibly be happening. Keothi concerned over these matters has sent word far and wide for those that can help must answer her.

Weather Dwindalian, Marquis or Xorhasian none of these signs can be ignored any longer.

You must aide her, you must help Wildemount survive this unknown threat.
