You'll join me and a handful of other players as we embark on a three- to four-hour long adventure using the Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition ruleset. After some quick introductions, a rundown of our table rules and a brief overview of the basic game rules, you'll pick a character from a set of pre-built adventurers, name them and start rolling some dice! The first half of the game will run an hour and a half, followed by a 15-minute break and a second hour and a half long session. Due to the loose nature of role-playing storytelling, these times are a guideline only and will largely depend on how quickly you progress through the story. Dice, character sheets, character miniatures, maps and baked goods from local bakery Freckles and French Toast will be provided. No role-playing experience is necessary at all!
I'm the owner and founder of The Guild of Misadventures, a professional role-playing game and collaborative storytelling service based in Cape Town, South Africa. I've been a professional Game Master/Dungeon Master/Storyteller for nearly three years now and run a number of one-off games and ongoing adventure campaigns throughout the city. I'm also a former journalist, current freelance copywriter and published poet, so telling interesting and engaging stories has been my bread and butter for my entire adult life. I love running and playing role-playing games. They're an incredible avenue for meeting interesting and unusual people and offer a great way to improve your communication, creative and interpersonal skills while also getting the opportunity to slay a dragon!
A selection of baked goods from local bakery Freckles and French Toast will be available. Gluten-free and vegan options are…
Non-alcoholic cold drinks will be provided
Dice, character sheets, pencils, character miniatures and maps will all be provided.
We will meet at a local bookstore in Woodstock, which regularly hosts RPG nights, and play at one of their dedicated gaming tables in the back of the store.
No previous role-playing experience is required for the game! Just bring yourself and your imagination.
