This is an Ongoing course were each week we will learn new aspects of wat it takes to be a Dungeon Master for Dungeons and Dragons and other TTRPG games! We will craft stories, make maps, and design characters for our very own rpg games!

Class Experience

  • Learn the basics of how to be a Dungeon Master and run your own game of Dungeons and Dragons! Learn how to craft your own story, create interesting characters and NPCs, build your very own combat and skill encounters, and of course, make some awesome maps too!
I've been a Dungeon Master, formally, for the past five years and a player of D&D for much longer. In addition to that I've been running D&D session on Outschool from over a year and have 4 current  groups playing! (ask me if you're interested in joining as a player!). I've designed hundreds of characters and NPCs, several dozen maps, and outlined multiyear campaigns for the games I've run.

Homework
Frequency: available upon request
Feedback: available upon request
Details: Nothing very formal here, but definitely encourage students to continue building their adventures between class sessions! They may not be able to finish everything during our in class time so I encourage them to finish of those weekly projects at least!
I demonstrate a few free online tools to help students learn: Hero Forge (heroforge.com) and Inkarnate (inkarnate.com), both of which you can make a free account with access to a wide variety of content and tools for free.
Journal, art book, notepad, paper, pencil, d20 dice, something to write or type with so they can plan their adventure!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Dungeons and Dragons, by its nature, often involves battling, well Dragons! And other creatures that might be considered frightening or scary like trolls, wicked witches, and spiders! In my Outschool D&D sessions and demonstrations I seek to keep everything very PG ( think Brave, Raya and the Last Dragon, classic Star Wars, Harry Potter Books 1-3). That said there is fantasy violence and magic to some degree and some of the monsters can and should be fearsome. I try and guide learners towards the idea that fighting isn't always the solution, but it is a game about tactical combat as well. 
I demonstrate a few free online tools to help students learn: Hero Forge (heroforge.com) and Inkarnate (inkarnate.com), both of which you can make a free account with access to a wide variety of content and tools for free. Neither of these is required! A learner may use a journal, map paper, art book, or some other digital tools that they prefer as well.
