Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to create characters in Dungeons and Dragons, as well as learn the basic mechanics they need in order to start playing in an adventure.  Dungeons and Dragons includes cooperative puzzles and adventures to improve their story-telling, character building, social and critical thinking skills.  
I am an experienced DM who has guided many beginner and advanced players through learning the basics of Dungeons and Dragons.
Optional homework to create a character on their own after class
 2 files available upon enrollment
-A free DND Beyond Account created & signed in (recommended) -D&D Player Handbook (provided and optional, but will be referenced. No need to print)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be aware: table-top RPGs are full of surprises and improvisation.  They may be rated PG due to fantasy violence, magic, scary themes.  I will be keeping the game as family friendly as possible but there will be fantastic battles and possible character injuries.

 I will be directing them to D&D Beyond and DND 5e Wikidot to assist in creating a character, which are free and safe resources for D&D players.
We will refer to the D&D Player handbook, which I will provide a copy of.  I will be directing them to D&D Beyond and DND 5e Wikidot to assist in creating a character, which are free and safe resources for D&D players.
