The staff at Mesa Public Library announces Dungeons and Dragons (DnD) 101 for ADULTS!
This 3-part series will livestream via Zoom from 6-8 p.m. Thursday evenings, April 21, May 5, and May 19.
Los Alamos has seen a wave of popularity in DnD programming (primarily for youth), but there’s no reason adults should have to miss out on all the fun. This program is designed to get adults acquainted with the basics of DnD.
Have you always wondered what Dungeons and Dragons was all about? This program will provide a comprehensive introduction for adults seeking to get started in the complex world of DnD and will serve as a great opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals! Learn to build a character and explore how dice rolling and gameplay work. Practice the basics of DnD-style storytelling with other players. Finally, use all you’ve learned to play through a one-shot session together. Player manuals, as well as dice, will be available for checkout from the library once the program begins.
This program series was organized by Library Specialist Norma Covington who says that she receives many inquiries from library patrons about resources for learning DnD. “At the library, we’ve found that a lot of people are interested in checking out instructional DnD manuals, but they quickly become overwhelmed by trying to learn this complex game on their own,” says Covington. “We felt that by having an experienced gamer teach DnD to people in a group learning environment, we could quell the anxiety that beginners tend to experience.”
Once the 3-part series concludes, Covington hopes the group will take advantage of Mesa Public Library’s free meeting rooms to continue playing the game together.
This program series is free to the public and is best suited for those 16 years of age and up.
Registration is required. To sign up, visit LosAlamosLibrary.org or call 505.662.8257.
