We will learn about running combat using Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. Some basic familiarity with the rules is needed for this course. We will take a look at example monster stat blocks, and briefly cover topics such as the challenge rating (CR) system. We will learn how to design an encounter as well as how to run a combat. A link to a free and public copy of the official rules will be provided as part of this course. If your child owns physical dice (D20, D10, D8, D6, etc.) they are...
I have been the game master for two groups that usually meet once a week for a few hours each, that have been consistently meeting for the last three years. I have done a lot of reflection on making and running games, as well as the storytelling and world building that goes into them. I am hoping to share some of my insights and passions, in helping your child learn how to both play and host roleplaying games with friends. I also have previous experience, teaching ages 12-17 where I was a summer camp instructor for two summers. There I taught students how to create levels in computer games, focusing on aspects like storytelling and game design.
There will be no homework needed for this course.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There will be mentions of fantasy violence within the context of creative storytelling.
There will be a link to a free and public copy of the D&D 5th Edition ruels.
