D&D Adventurers League @ North Shore
Nov 16 @ 2:30 pm

Join us every week for 3-5 hours of Dungeons & Dragons action at D&D Adventurers League on Saturdays!

Signup is from 2:30-2:50pm
The adventure begins at 3:00pm

These sessions use the official Adventurers League (AL) campaign content. Our experienced Dungeon Masters will divide all attendees into tables that fit your characters’ levels and guide you and your characters through exciting dangers and deeds.

 

New players: Our DMs have a lot to organize when this event begins, and character creation can be time-consuming. It’s much easier for our DMs to review a character you’ve already created than it is to help create one from scratch. Download the AL Player’s Guide for more information on creating your character!

Plus – Visit the Adventurers League Resource Page for Frequently Asked Questions, AL Character Sheets, and more!

No matter your experience level, feel free to join in every Saturday!

 

D&D Expeditions is an official D&D Adventurers League event.

D&D: Kids’ Table! @ North Shore
Nov 16 @ 3:00 pm

Welcome to the D&D Kids’ Table—every Saturday during our normal Dungeons & Dragons Adventurers League game!

Signup is from 2:30-2:50pm
The adventure begins at 3:00pm

At this 15-and-younger table, our local youngsters have a place to adventure with others their age and pursue their characters’ wildest whims.

Your Dungeon Masters, David and Erik, started this table to give kids a place to express themselves without worrying about whether adults will think they’re playing “wrong.” There is no wrong way to play D&D—it’s all about telling a great, hilarious story and growing with your characters!

Parents Welcome to Join!
Any player who can follow the rules of our event space is welcome to play without supervision, but parents are also welcome to play at the kids’ table in their weekly adventures, or jump into Adventurers League for the week.

Dungeons & Dragons (Casual Group) @ North Shore
Nov 17 @ 12:00 pm

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 a game of collective storytelling and memorable moments as it is about slaying dragons and collecting loot.

Your Dungeon Master, Larry, will guide you through this open-world adventure campaign. Larry has been DMing for many years, but is relatively new to Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, so this is a fantastic group for new and casual players.

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. Players are encouraged to bring their own dice, but no materials are necessary in order to join!

Limited Seating—Arrive Early
This event’s seating is limited. We suggest arriving 30-45 minutes prior to the event’s start time each week in order to give yourself a better chance to play in the event.
