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.

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.

 

About your Dungeon Master
Chris has been playing Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop roleplaying games since 1981. For many years, he has run events in Board Game Barrister stores, at official conventions, and at home. Chris has published several pieces in third-party roleplaying books and has written numerous adventures and campaigns.

Dungeon Crawl Classics—Portal Under the Stars @ Mayfair
Aug 31 @ 12:00 pm

The *Dungeon Crawl Classics* Role Playing Game is 100% dungeon crawl, featuring the monsters you know, the traps you fear, and the secret doors you know are hidden somewhere. Adventure as 1974 intended you to, with modern rules grounded in the origins of sword & sorcery. Fast play, cryptic secrets, and a mysterious past await you!

Every game of Dungeon Crawl Classics starts with a funnel adventure where players start as level-0 peasants with nothing but your profession (rat catcher, thief, farmer…) and your tools of the trade (rat cages, lock picks, cows—the important stuff). Each player randomly generates up to 3-4 characters in the very likely event that one of your peasants doesn’t survive the journey.

If one of your characters is lucky enough to get to the end of the dungeon – congratulations! You’re officially an adventurer!

New Players Welcome – All Materials Provided
DCC is a silly game, and is an amazing experience for any new player who is looking for a low-stakes RPG romp. Our game master, Alex, will provide all the materials necessary to play.

Players are encouraged to bring RPG dice from home.
