Teen D&D (December 11)

Teens, 12-18, can sign up at Rodman Public Library to participate in an ongoing series of “one-shot” Dungeons and Dragons missions every month. Players do not have to play consistently each month to participate.

Those interested can sign up via our online calendar on a month-to-month basis. Space will be limited each month to six players. A DnD Beyond account and email address is required to play.

Before the day of the program, participants will receive a link to the campaign on DnD Beyond via email in order to add their character to the campaign page so the Dungeon Master can review the character beforehand. The Dungeon Master will also inform the participants via email what is needed for their character sheet within the parameters of the adventure (level, items, etc.).

Participants must create a character before the day of the program and have the character ready to go to maximum the time set aside for gameplay. If you need assistance creating a DnD Beyond account or a character, please make arrangements with the Reference Department ahead of time.

Sessions will be held on the second Mondays of each month from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
