Welcome to Lord of the Rings RPGs! This is a lot like the Dungeons and Dragons RPG, and also different. It's a roleplaying game, and it fosters a more immersive, narrative driven story, with greater character options. It will feel more like the Rings of Power or Skyrim in tone. The flow of the game is similar to D&D, and “how” the game is played is a bit different. But we’ll cover all that. In The Dark Forest, characters take on the role of adventurers, but they are not super heroes (as...
This class is taught in English.
The goal of the class is to familiarize the learner with the mechanics of "cinematic style" roleplaying through the The One Ring 2e RPG system. Players will learn the basics of how to interact, fight, and explore using this gaming system.
The founder of the Academy, Adam Scott, has been a professional classroom teacher his entire career, and playing role-playing games since he was 10 years old. In addition to his teaching experience, he believes each class should put the students at the center of learning, minimizing lecture and encouraging interaction. DnD Club has organized and taught groups of Dungeons and Dragons for hundreds of students and community members, running games professionally for private clients with children between 10-15 years old. We want you to live your adventure. It's our mission that your child feels empowered and excited after this lesson, potentially sparking an interest in a wonderful activity.

Roleplaying games offer a creative "sandbox" in which participants can engage in imaginative problem solving. Fantasy violence will not be directly depicted, but the possibilities of this within the game will be discussed. Students may wish to explore ideas related to their characters that involve in-game "weapons" and "spells" for the use of "in-game" violence. The world of Lord of the Rings is best described thematically as "PG-13". It is intense. There are people and creatures which have long histories of animosity, dark magic pervades the land, and a dark forest hides unknown power. The world is dangerous and character death in this system, while not "regular", is very realistic. "Corruption", which means using magic for possibly negative ends, is a game mechanic that players can choose to use (with consequences, sort of like the Dark Side of the Force in Star Wars). As with all our classes, depictions of violence and language will be kept to an age appropriate standard. Gore, profanity, and explicit violence are not depicted. This game is not appropriate for players under 13 years of age. No exceptions.
We will use the Symbaroum pre-made character templates which will be made available upon sign up.
