    Curious about Dungeons and Dragons? Give it a try with this one-session-long adventure for beginners!

    This adventure uses pre-generated characters, so you must register by July 6th to bid of your preference of character and get your info sheet before game-day. Late registrations will be assigned a random character.

    Ages: 12-18

    Note: if you cannot attend this session, a repeat of this game will be offered on July 23rd! Please register for only one of the two sessions, since it would not be as fun knowing the puzzles and enemies ahead of time. Stay tuned for new games coming up later!
