Due to popular demand the Rockport Public Library is excited to announce its first ever Teen Dungeons & Dragons Club has officially been formed!

Have you always wanted to play D&D? Are you already an avid D&D player? Whether you have been playing for years or are new to the game the library invites you to join our new club.

The first meeting of the club will take place on Monday July 29th, from 4:00pm- 5:30pm. During this meeting we will learn a little bit about D&D, create our characters, and decide when the best time to meet is. The library is asking that all participants be 10 years or older.

For those of you who may be unsure of what D&D is, no problem. Below you will find brief overview of the game provided by D&D Wizards:

The Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game is about storytelling in worlds of sword and sorcery. It shares elements with childhood games of make-believe. Like those games, D&D is driven by imagination. It’s about picturing the towering castle beneath the stormy night sky and imagining how a fantasy adventurer might react to the challenges that scene presents.

Unlike a game of make-believe, D&D gives structure to the stories, a way of determining the consequences of the adventurers’ action. Players roll dice to resolve whether their attacks hit or miss or whether their adventurers can scale a cliff, roll away from the strike of a magical lightning bolt, or pull off some other dangerous task. Anything is possible, but the dice make some outcomes more probable than others.

In the Dungeons & Dragons game, each player creates an adventurer (also called a character) and teams up with other adventurers (played by friends). Working together, the group might explore a dark dungeon, a ruined city, a haunted castle, a lost temple deep in a jungle, or a lava-filled cavern beneath a mysterious mountain. The adventurers can solve puzzles, talk with other characters, battle fantastic monsters, and discover fabulous magic items and other treasure.

Capacity: 18 of 30 spaces available.
