Dungeons and Dragons for Adults

Dungeons and Dragons for Adults

Come join the magical world of D&D storytelling, where you can be a bard, a wizard, or a barbarian for a few hours and let your creativity run free. Solve weird and wonderful problems with spells, cunning, or daggers and make some new friends in the process.

Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned player you will be welcomed every 2nd and 4th Saturday for an afternoon of collaborative storytelling. Friendly game masters will be ready with dice, characters, and the start of a story; all we need is your creativity and enthusiasm. 

No prior experience is necessary. This program is for adults 18+.

What is Dungeons and Dragons? 

D&D is one of many tabletop roleplaying games, in which players create and control fictional characters within a shared imaginary world. A Game Master guides the story and sets the scene, while the players make decisions for their characters, rolling dice to determine outcomes. TTRPGs encourage creativity, teamwork, and storytelling as players collaborate to overcome challenges and complete quests. 

Modern D&D has veered away from the combat-heavy game it used to be. While it's still possible to spend hours attacking monsters and finding loot, many groups now tell stories of mystery, intrigue, horror, or whimsy. 

Who are the game masters? 

This event is organized by Jeltje van Baren (yinnah@yahoo.com), who learned to play a few years ago and has been creating games for new players ever since. She will be assisted by a rotating group of diverse GMs from the local TTRPG community, all of whom are used to patiently explaining the rules and keeping the game fun for everyone.
