Learn to Slay for Young Adventurers Session Two: Actions & Roleplaying

Sunday, June 23 @ 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Have you ever wanted to slay a dragon, raid a dungeon treasure room, or even save a village from an evil bandit horde? All young adventurers in the making should join us as we learn the basics of how to get started and play Dungeons & Dragons.

We will learn everything from character creation, to combat, to the basics of storytelling, and more through the course of three sessions – June 16th, June 23rd, and June 30th. Each session starts at 1 PM and lasts about an hour and a half.

Session 1, June 16th:  What is D&D and Character Creation
Session 2, June 23rd: Non-Combat Actions and Role-Playing
Session 3, June 30th: Combat, Spells, and Weapons

This program will include some simple math, mild violence, and imagination. There will be some time following the program to ask questions and meet others interested in D&D.

This series is open to youth ages 8-18 and only requires a one-time registration. Each session will build on the information presented at previous sessions, so please plan on attending as many sessions as possible to build on your D&D knowledge.

Attending previous sessions is recommended but not required. If you missed any, we’ll get you caught up!

All sessions are free and take place in person at the Des Moines Public Library Franklin Avenue Branch at 5000 Franklin Avenue starting at 1 PM.
