About the Adventure

Adventure Overview:

Let’s learn how to play D&D!

What better way than with a seemingly simple assignment: Clearing out some giant rats from within the cellar of the Wizard Tower’s Brewing Co.  How bad of an assignment could it be? Surely there are no other dangers within the cellar’s depths…

A simple enough task, however, things are always more complicated (especially because you’re a bunch of rookies, just make sure to point your bows downrange).

The session will last 2-3 hours, and will take you and your squad through a great first timer focused experience.


What if you’ve never played an RPG, what is it like?
Our games are player-driven, putting you and your character at the center of the plot. Your choices will decide the outcome: from heroic victory to an untimely end. We’re here to tell a great story that makes you feel like you’re in your favorite book or movie.


What do you need to do before the first session?

Upon sign up, we’ll connect and make sure you can begin fleshing out your character ideas, and that I can support you with questions about any of the tech programs. If necessary, I will provide pregenerated level two characters so you can simply sign up and play.


What does the GM provide?

The GM provides access to the PHB and many other source books.

Character Creation Guidelines:

Characters will start out at level two. We will use standard array or point buy during session zero to create our characters. If you don’t know what this is, that’s ok! I’ll help you figure all this out.

I ask that all characters have a reason for needing the adventuring party. I do not allow evil alignment for purposes of encouraging party unity.

Who will like this game?

  1. Players brand new to table top roleplaying! This is a great first adventure.
  2. Players who want to explore a world, discover exciting places, and make complicated decisions.
  3. Players who are interested in developing a story, interacting with quirky, noble, and sometimes nefarious characters.
  4. Working together with other players to solve problems, and have a great time in the process!

GM Details/Guidance:

This game includes typical fantasy themes that one may find in stories like Lord of the Rings. Themes of dark and light abound. Murder and violence in this context are found throughout.

A great intro to D&D

June 16, 2024

I played in a one-shot D&D session tailored to beginners, and John was an excellent teacher and DM. I asked him a million questions throughout the session, and he always provided clear, thorough responses. John is funny, patient, and so knowledgeable about D&D. I highly recommend him as DM!

For the record, had never played D&D beforehand and yet, John made learning incredibly simple! He is an exceptional storyteller and as DM has a real gift for teaching the fundamentals. His campaigns are immersive. Would encourage inquiring new players to check out his stuff. Can’t miss!

A fantastic introduction to D&D for beginners

January 28, 2024

I recently had the most amazing experience diving into the world of Dungeons and Dragons for the first time, and I owe it all to the fantastic Dungeon Master at the table. From the moment we began our adventure, I learned a lot about how to develop my character and backstory.

The Dungeon Master’s guidance was invaluable and made the learning process incredibly smooth. He patiently explained how to work with each dice, helped me create my first character, and set the stage for an epic adventure. His passion for the game was evident, and his storytelling skills were truly impressive. I felt encouraged and supported throughout the entire game, and as a beginner, I never felt overwhelmed or lost.

I cannot recommend this Dungeons and Dragons experience enough to anyone who is new to the game or looking to explore the world of tabletop role-playing. It’s an incredible journey of discovery, and with a DM as talented and supportive as this, you’re guaranteed to have an unforgettable time. Five stars all the way!

Looking for a patient and fun GM to help you get started?

John helped me troubleshoot my computer/connectivity issues and he answered all of my newbie questions about the game. His character voiceovers had our party laughing the whole way, even while we were getting pounded on by goblins. Start with John and you won’t be disappointed.
