Dungeons & Dragons Introduction  Thursday PM 2.00 – 4.00

The Dungeons and Dragons (also known as D&D) introduction will introduce people to the game and teach individuals how to run and play it themselves using online resources. The hope is this will help individuals struggling with loneliness and isolation establish a hobby to help establish a regular peer group and also be a jumping off platform into other self-taught per-led hobbies and interests as D&D tends to draw in a wide a varied group of individuals that have multiple interests, such artists, digital map makers and creative writing enthusiasts.

Dungeons and Dragons is a cooperative roleplaying game that is usually played by a group of 4-6 players and a Dungeon Master or “DM” that referees and runs the game.
“The Dungeons & Dragons role playing game is about storytelling in worlds of swords and sorcery. Like games of make-believe, D&D is driven by imagination. It’s about picturing a crumbling castle in a darkening forest and imagining how a fantasy adventurer (s) might react to the challenges that scene presents.” -From the official website look here for more information: https://dnd.wizards.com/

Delivered by Matt (The Glenmore Trust) and Emily

Number of sessions: 6

Resources required: A computer/laptop, stable internet connection, and a microphone/video camera (Many online D&D games choose to use audio only but it’s down to group preference) and an email account to log onto the main website that is used to play the game called Roll20. It does require a basic level of maths (adding and subtraction mainly) but nothing to complicated. Creative imagination is a key part of the game.
