Dungeon Master Boot Camp
Saturday, December 23rd, 2-3:30pm
Are you a long-time Dungeons & Dragons player who's looking to make the leap to behind the DM screen? A roleplaying newbie who would like to run a game for your friends? A grizzled veteran DM in need of some new ideas?
Join us from 2pm to 3:30pm for our Teen & YA Dungeon Master Boot Camp! Every month we'll focus on a different topic related to being a DM, from designing your first adventure to streamlining your combats to managing different personalities at your table. We can also tackle any questions or situations you have as a group—which is way more fun than trying to figure it out on your own!
Each session of DM Boot Camp will feature a selection of helpful resources you can use in your game, and if time allows we'll try out some Five Minute Encounters. No registration necessary, just drop in!
