Last year, students at Minnesota Virtual asked to have a teacher lead a Dungeons and Dragons campaign for them and Mr. Niesen accepted the challenge. This turned into 15 students playing multiple campaigns during the second semester. This year, the Dungeons and Dragons club is expanding and welcomes all MTCS students who are interested in learning about and playing Dungeons and Dragons.
Dungeons and Dragons is a game where you can be someone else. Mighty warrior, or a sneaky rogue or a powerful wizard who commands the forces of creation. It is Role Playing, and it is fun!
Driven by imagination, Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is a cooperative role-playing game about storytelling in worlds of swords and spells! Each player creates a character who is an adventurer that teams up with other adventurers. One player takes on the role of the Dungeon Master (DM), the game’s lead storyteller and referee. The DM runs the adventure and describes the environment and creatures that the characters face. The players decide what they want each of their characters to do. The DM, then determines the results of these actions, often relying on dice rolls to determine success, and narrates what the characters experience.
Ultimately, the game is about creating a story together.
D&D is a game for everyone! Benefits include:
