Dungeons and Dragons Caught in a Tome

TDSRC Webcard Generale

Hail adventurers! Join us for a one-shot Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) adventure and get caught in a tome. We will be using 5th edition rules. Characters will be provided. No experience is necessary. This activity is aimed at children ages 8-12.

Please Note: This is not a continuous campaign, but a single session of D&D.  We are only accepting five (5) players per session, so please pick the date that works best for you and register for that session only.

We will be alternating between more combat-oriented adventures and more puzzle-oriented adventures. Please pick a date that matches your preferred play style.

Are you an experienced D&D player? Join us on August 17 and roll for each room in the dungeon - behind every door will be a random fight or puzzle.
