Have you ever wanted to tell the story of brave (or not so brave) adventurers as they fought the dragon and saved the village? Now is your chance!

We run Dungeons and Dragons Wednesday from 6pm-8pm and Sundays from 11am to 3pm. We are presently seeking interested volunteer Dungeon Masters for Wednesday Nights, and as occasional backups for Sundays.

What you get:
– Access to all the official Fifth Edition D&D Adventures League Adventures
– Dungeon Master exclusive spiffs and appreciation.

What you need:
– Knowledge of D&D 5th Edition. (Knowledge of previous versions of D&D while not necessary, is an asset)
– Patience, and willingness to work with new players. Many of our Wednesday players are first time players to either D&D and/or 5th Edition.
– A sense of humor & fun.

– No previous experience is necessary, if you are wanting to learn to be a Dungeon Master, we can certainly help with that.

Interested DM’s can email/call/facebook message us.
