A blog post from our new resident GameMaster – Cal.
Horsham Gamers will soon be beginning our very own Dungeons and Dragons campaign and we are looking for some of you lovely people to be players. This will be open to players of any kind, from seasoned dungeon crawlers to curious beginners. Basically, if you wanna give D&D a go, we want you!
We’ll be doing the sessions themselves online using Roll20 for dice rolls, and discord for voice chat, so if you’re interested hop on over to the #dnd channel in the Horsham Gamers discord server
, or make yourself known to me (Callam) on the Facebook group or Discord (CalNevs) and we can have a chat.
A small snippet from the main D&D website if this looks all new…
The first Dungeons & Dragons game was played back when Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson chose to personalize the massive battles of their fantasy wargames with the exploits of individual heroes. This inspiration became the first fantasy roleplaying game, in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This new kind of game has become immensely popular over the years, and D&D has grown to include many new ways to vividly experience worlds of heroic fantasy.
The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. You can also explore the world of Dungeons & Dragons through any of the novels written by its fantasy authors, as well as engaging board games and immersive video games. All of these stories are part of D&D.
Raise your spells and prepare your armor… see you in battle.
