D&D at LPL

Learning how to play Dungeons & Dragons at all can be intimidating for a novice, but being the Dungeon Master of a game is next level. But fear not! Your local library is here to help. 

On Saturday, September 8th from 2-4 PM, local teen Dungeon Master Beaux is going to show us how to amp up our Dungeon Master skills in our event, D&D: Behind the Screen.

We'll learn how to level up our D&D storytelling, create complex characters, and generally nerd out about the game. Seasoned adventurers and first timers are all welcome, but BYOD (Bring Your Own Dice, but no worries if you don't have any).

While you wait on the edge of your seat for the event, check out some of the awesome D&D related resources we have for check-out here at LPL:
