PLEASE NOTE: This is a FLEXIBLE schedule class; there are NO live meetings. In addition, this class is for students who do NOT know how to play D&D. Students who already know how to play will be bored! Are you interested in D&D, but overwhelmed by all the rules and options? Whether you've never played, or only played a few times, this five week class will explain all the different choices and rules when it comes to Dungeons and Dragons!

I've introduced more people to D&D than I can count, and almost all of them continue to play to this day! I've taught many D&D classes here on Outschool, and one thing that I notice in a lot of students is a general sort of confusion over the rules - things that a good Dungeon Master can easily help with and explain during class - but that might make a child nervous to play in a group of peers, where the DM might be less experienced. I'm a big believer that the best way to learn D&D is to actually play D&D, but I'm also adept at giving clear, simple explanations of the rules.
3 files available upon enrollmentI'll provide a set of pre-made characters that the students will be able to choose from. I'll also provide the Players Basic Rules.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There will be a short combat encounter where students will be attacking goblins, and there will be a short encounter with an injured monster. Students will also cast spells at each other, though the students' characters will not suffer any lasting damage.
