Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to work together as a team. They will develop their innate creativity as they cooperatively make a new world come to life. Technically students will acquire or expand knowledge about the complex system of D&D 5e, which involves a lot of quick math, logic, and problem-solving skills.
I have been GM/DM for several editions of D&D and other roleplaying games for over 30 years now. I have been teaching for over 20 years now: Latin, Greek, mythology, Greek and Roman history, linguistics, and most recently roleplaying. I have been teaching online since 2011, but this is my first class on Outschool.
Before the first class, each student/player should create a level 1 character of whatever race and class they prefer in Dungeons and Dragons 5e. In between classes, each student/player needs to be sure to adjust their character sheet for gold and items they acquire in that class/session. If they advance to a new level (the teacher will assess this at the end of each class), they will need to update their character sheet including any new abilities that they choose or automatically acquire. Sharing these updated character sheets by sending an attachment in the Outschool Classroom, while not necessary, will allow the teacher to assess and give the students constructive feedback. Students do NOT need any prior experience with roleplaying. We will be using D&D 5e rules. Most fantasy races are fine, but you should ask the teacher if it is not a core race (in the Player's Handbook), so details can be established. This is a heroic campaign, so characters are more amazing than average PCs. Please assign a total of 80 points to your ability scores before assigning any racial bonuses. For example, if you are playing a Half-Orc, you could divide 80 points to give 16 Strength, 15 Constitution, 14 Dexterity, 10 Intelligence, 14 Wisdom, and 11 Charisma. Then you would add the Half-Orc racial bonus +2 to Strength (16>18) and +1 to Constitution (15>16). No scores can be higher than 18 before the racial bonuses and no score higher than 19 or 20 after the racial bonuses of +1 or +2. Each character will start at full hit points for level 1, and we will use milestone advancement instead of experience points.

Ongoing assessment will occur through the course of each session. The instructor will support and encourage students' growth in understanding the technical aspects of the game as well as the creative dimensions of roleplaying. Additionally the teacher may assess and provide feedback based on the character sheets.
4 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be playing heroic characters in a fantasy world. They will face devious and dangerous enemies and with a bit of skill, luck, and endurance thwart their evil schemes.
1. Character Sheet: 3 options to prepare
A. (Advanced) In the Classroom you will find a blank pdf character sheet which includes a spell sheet for those characters who casts spells (sorcerers, bards, etc.). You may fill it out by hand if you want. This option is best if you have access to books and want to customize everything, but it is not recommended unless you have played before.
B. (Intermediate) You could visit aidedd.org. The site is in French and English, so you may need to change to English. If you sign up for a free account there, you will be able to use many race and classs options in the character builder. You the make a character and print out the character sheet. This option is easier than A and still allows a lot of customization. 
C. (Easy) The easiest option perhaps is to visit fastcharacter.com. There you can make a level 1 character very quickly by just making a few choices and then printing out the sheet. The only problem is that it will default to a standard array of ability scores equalling 72 points before racial bonuses. Since you will be making heroic characters with 80 total points, you can just add a total of 8 more points. Just cross out the old ability scores and write in the new scores.

2. Dice: 3 options to prepare
A. (Fairly cheap) Visit a local bookstore (like Barnes & Noble) or even better a local gaming store and purchase a set of dice, typically 7 dice: d20, d12, d8, d6, d4, and two d10. Sometimes people like to have some extra d6 (regular cube dice). These usually cost less than $10.
B. (Cheap) Purchase a set of dice online. Lots of options here. You can usually find a set for $5 or so.
C. (Free) Plan to use digital dice via an app. There are many apps for Android and iOS devices, and several of these are free. There are also free dice websites like those at: https://wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses the optional resources AideDD (Character Builder), Fast Character, and digital dice (one of many available online).
