Dungeons and Dragons Caught in a Tome

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.

Combat vs Puzzles:

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

Combat: July 6, July 20, August 3

Puzzle: July 13, July 27, August 10

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.
