D&D Competitive Adventurers League—Return to the Ghost Tower of Inverness @ North Shore
Aug 17 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us on August 17 for a competitive Adventurers League event!

Signups start at 2:30PM.

Return to the Ghost Tower of Inverness
This is a familiar scene. Shackled. Bound. The same faces surround you as the last time you were in this dark, dank cell. Your friends, your party members. You’ve been told that your actions have led to death and destruction near and far, but you were only doing what was demanded of you from those who hold you captive again now. A looming figure goes over your crimes and holds out a glowing gemstone, offering a trade for your lives. “You must undo what you have done and put this back,” he whispers. “You must return to the Ghost Tower.”

This is a Four‐Hour Competitive Adventure

This event will replace our standard Adventurers League play for the day.

As a participant, you will be assigned to one of three 4-player parties.

Use of Pregenerated Characters will be required, and they will be supplied.

POSTPONED: Dungeons & Dragons (Casual Homebrew) @ North Shore
Aug 17 @ 5:30 pm

Due to a special event taking place in our event space, we will not host our usual bi-weekly evening Dungeons & Dragons table.

We appreciate your patience, and we’ll see you again in two weeks!

 

Join us for a bi-weekly Dungeons & Dragons campaign!

Create a character, prepare to combat great threats, and dive into your own unique story in this massively popular roleplaying game! D&D is as much as game of collective storytelling and memorable moments as it is about slaying dragons and collecting loot.

This story will be taking place in Upaven, a world filled to the gills with adventure. The first place the players will see is Teldras, The Home Of Forests.

Your Dungeon Master, Justin, will guide you through this open-world adventure campaign, welcoming all players new and old to a fantastic world.

New players welcome!
Players with little or no experience with Dungeons & Dragons are welcome at this event. Your Dungeon Master is available to provide guidance and answer questions during the event. No materials necessary!

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (EVENT FULL) @ Greenfield
Aug 25 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This seating cap for this event has been reached. Stay tuned for future D&D for Kids events with our incredible Dungeon Master, Chris!

 

Welcome to Barristerberg Adventurers Academy!

This mythical and magical place is where young adventurers begin their journeys and build lifelong knowledge of how to be a great Dungeons & Dragons player.

Dungeons & Dragons isn’t just about tracking statistics and defeating imaginary dragons. The real fun of the game is in telling a communal story, cheering when your teamwork pays off, and laughing when everything goes wonky.

Chris has published several pieces in third-party roleplaying books and has written numerous adventures and campaigns.

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (Class) @ Greenfield
Feb 16 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Dungeons & Dragons isn’t just about tracking statistics and defeating imaginary dragons. The real fun of the game is in telling a communal story, cheering when your teamwork pays off, and laughing when everything goes wonky.

Learning Event
This D&D “class” will prepare young players to join in on any of our D&D for Kids adventures in the future.

Tier 1 Event
This “Tier 1” event will focus solely on the fundamentals of Dungeons & Dragons gameplay. Participants will learn the essentials of:

  • Choosing an adventuring class and race (elf, dwarf, gnome, human, etc) for their character;
  • Listening to descriptions of the story world and making choices for their characters;
  • Interacting with the Dungeon Master’s story world and the characters it contains;
  • Basic rules of adventuring and fighting (Example: Roll a die and add your attack value to see if you hit this goblin);
  • Acting in turn so that the whole group participates.

A “trimmed” portion of the Dungeons & Dragons rules will be used during this gameplay session. To continue learning the complete D&D ruleset, also join us for our Tier 2 and Tier 3 events.
