Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (Class)
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.
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.
