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

Wednesday, April 20, 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 Two

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. Here’s what you can expect for each session:

Session One, April 6th: Introduction to D&D for players. We will go over character creation, basic skills, combat, role-playing, and more.

Session Two, April 20th: How to be a dungeon master. We will learn the basics of running a D&D campaign as a dungeon master including creating a campaign, DM tools and resources, leading players, role-playing, common issues, and more.

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. 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!

It is not necessary to come to each session – register for whichever sessions sound useful to you!
