Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn: 
 - How to use the 5-room model to make a dynamic frame for an adventure
 - How to create a narrative through environmental storytelling.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Being that the aim of this course is the creation of a dungeon in Dungeons and Dragons, there will likely be some discussion of violence. Combat and peril are central to Dungeons and Dragons.

For instance, there may be a monster in the dungeon that would be fought by the party (like a mummy guarding a tomb). Or there may be traps placed throughout the dungeon (such as a collapsing floor or darts shooting from the walls). 

However, it is not useful to the class for there to be graphic description of peril. As such, I will ensure any discussion is kept to only that which is necessary for the creation of the room in question.
