Newbie Nights

These beginner focused events will teach you the basics of the game and allow you to play a one-shot adventure in a judgement free environment.


Our Newbie Nights are the perfect way to jump into D&D if you have little to no experience with the game or RPGs in general. We provide basic instruction on the core game mechanics and get you playing quickly in a fun and safe environment!

What to Expect

When you arrive at the venue our host will provide you with a name tag, give you the lay of the land and help you pick a character. When everybody has arrived the host will give a brief talk outlining the major aspects of the game. Once that is done you will be given an overview of how your particular character works and you will be assigned a table to play at. For the rest of the night you will get to play a one-shot adventure with 4 other new players and your DM will teach you anything you need to know as you go. At the end of the night you'll have a reasonable understanding of how the game works and should be ready to play in any game from then on!

Experience Requirements

Absolutely none! If you've played the game once or twice and want a refresher or if you've never played an RPG in your life you'll be fine at this event.

What to bring

You do not have to bring anything other than a can-do attitude and a desire to have fun! We will have pre-generated characters, dice, pencils and the like on hand. In order to keep the amount of instruction to a minimum we ask that people do NOT bring their own characters to the event, please use one of the ones that we will have ion hand for you.
