Bring in big numbers of tweens or teens with a real-life video game where they are the heroes!

Get an in-depth look at this revolutionary event type and even create a mini version of the game on the spot.

The second event is:
D&D Session Zero
Thursday, Jan 27, 2022 at 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
Learn how to run a Session Zero for an RPG group!
Before the adventure begins we’ve got a bit of housekeeping to do. Session Zero is where we work out not just the type of game we want to play but how we want to play with each other. This Learn & Play will focus on preparing players for a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, but much of the advice can be applied to other role-playing game systems. We’ll explore the rules, tools, resources, and boundaries that all help get everyone prepared to play the game. Participants will have a chance to walk through character creation after a presentation on running an effective Session Zero.
Presenter: @Danielle Costello (she/her), General Librarian, Research and Instruction Services at Louisiana State University Libraries.
See everyone soon!
