This is the listing for our ONLINE version of this event - we are also holding an in-person version on campus!
If you want to take part in-person, please sign up to that event instead.
Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is perhaps the most popular Tabletop Roleplaying Game (RPG) of all time. If you have ever been interested in trying out RPGs, including D&D, this is your chance! Tabletop RPGs are something of a precursor to modern-day videogames, where a group of friends gather around a table to experience and interact with a thrilling story devised by a Game Master (GM). The GM for the group will guide the players through a story they themselves created, whilst facilitating any interactions they wish to make with the world within the story.
This session is a "one-shot" - in other words, a one off, self-contained story is told in each game. Our typical sessions are "campaigns" - where the story continues over many sessions/weeks over the year. As such, this is by far the best chance to try an RPG without an extended commitment. All you need is a good imagination - complete newcomers are very welcome! Your GM will be able to guide you through how to play.
Various games will be running so there will be something for everyone. Genres played in the past year include fantasy, Star Wars, cyberpunk, Weird West (wild west, with demons and magic), superheroes and much more besides.
You must sign up for this main event, and then on Monday 20th you’ll be able to sign up for individual games in small groups (of usually 4-6 players + a GM)! If you do not sign up to this event, you cannot take part.
This event is for games that will be taking place online. Games will take place on our Discord server which you will need to join, and you will need to be in contact with the GM who is running your game to find out specifics with regards to timing and use of Virtual Tabletop systems.
We are running the majority of our games in-person on campus. If you want to play in-person, instead sign up to the in-person event listing.
We expect everyone attending our events to follow our code of conduct, which can be found on our website.

The Trapped Wizard (D&D 5e)
Ran by Tom (Online)
