Dungeons and Dragons: Saltmarsh Ongoing Campaign
GM Dan - D&D and TTRPGs
In this ongoing class, learners will explore the coastal region of Saltmarsh and deal with the factional infighting happening there.
*Saturday section: room for 1 more player. Level 7, going into the second half of the campaign. We will cover D&D 5e in the most fun way possible: by playing it! In this campaign, players will solve a number of problems in and around the Fishing Village of Saltmarsh, having a wide-ranging experience that draws from nearly 50 years of Dungeons and Dragons history to explore a seaside campaign featuring Pirates, Smugglers, Sea-Monsters, Monster invasions, and the deadliest danger of all:...
This class is taught in English.
Learners will learn the mechanics of Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition and experience the Lost Mine of Phandelver from the Starter Set. We will also cover some ancillary topics like table etiquette, teamwork, and collaboration. The goal is to allow learners to gain enough familiarity and experience with the rules and gameplay of D&D to be able to participate elsewhere on Outschool, at school, at clubs, at the local gamestore, with friends, at conventions, or wherever they might find a game.
Homework OfferedLearners will need to work with the Dungeons and Dragons rules to update their character (level-up) between sessions. This can be done in 20-30 minutes and will happen intermittently throughout the campaign.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Copies of presentations, session summaries, etc. will be provided in order to answer questions or address issues. Useful but not required:
Monsters and men working for evil exist as counterpoints to the heroes of the game. Violence is always an option in tabletop roleplaying games, but violence will not be graphically or disturbingly described. (E.g. 'your arrow strikes home' rather than some other more graphic description of carnage). Safety tools will be provided and used so that we avoid sensitive or upsetting topics for your learner.
All sources are helpful but none are required. * D&D Player's Handbook (5th edition) or D&D Basic Rules (free at dnd.wizards.com) provide the backbone to the game. * Ghosts of Saltmarsh is the primary source of the adventure. * D&D Adventure 'Ghosts of Saltmarsh' - curriculum source (hardback and roll20 conversion) * Music by BattleBards, Incompetech, Tabletop Audio and Lyre RPG music. I may refer to other books in the D&D line as well (e.g. Dungeon Master's Guide, Monster Manual, etc.)
