Role playing games give players experience with a variety of skills including improvisation, critical thinking, math, and public speaking. We will use Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition rules to create characters and then test their might through an interactive story. Everyone will be taught—at a comfortable skill level—how to make characters and even run their own games as dungeon masters. Please note: We discourage students from creating characters before the first day of class. Instructors and students will collaborate to determine what kind of story they will create and in the past, students who arrived with a character in hand have been disappointed if their character doesn't fit the group decision.
