Introduction to Dungeons & Dragons: Session Three with Des Moines Public Library Central Branch

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 @ 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Get ready to dive into adventure! The Rook Room is partnering with the Des Moines Public Library Central Branch for a series of Dungeons & Dragons events where you’ll learn to play, learn to run a campaign, and even play a one-shot game.

Register for Session Three

This series is geared toward older teens and adults and is different than our Learn to Slay Series with the Franklin Avenue Branch. Each session will begin at 5:30 PM and last about two hours.

Session Three, May 18th: Now that you know how to play, let’s jump into a campaign!

Along with some skilled dungeon masters, we’ll be playing through a quick one-shot campaign taking about 2 hours and including both role-playing and combat elements.

Whether you want to give D&D a try, start a new campaign with your friends, or even make some new friends, join us for a night of adventure!

For this free play event, the one-shot campaign will be pre-written with all the information necessary to play through including the story, setting, NPCs, enemy stats, items, maps, and more.

The adventure will be built for 3rd level player characters. Players can feel free to bring their own pre-built, 3rd-level characters or choose from any of the 3rd-level characters provided at the event. Dice and mini-figures will be available to borrow along with D&D guides.

Dungeon or Game Masters will not be guaranteed. If you have a friend who is interested in DMing, this is the perfect opportunity with a short, pre-designed campaign with all necessary resources as well as Rook Room and library staff available to help with any questions. Depending on attendance and needs, staff may be available to DM, but again, it is not guaranteed.

These events are FREE but registration is required and can be done here:
