Teen D&D (Online)

Virtual Events

Join Mr. Brett Dungeon Master Brett in a digital fantasy adventure! Using Roll20, a free online RPG resource, you'll create a character and go on epic* quests around the humble little town of Phandalin every week. Space is very limited, so email Mr. Brett (BrettW@salinecountylibrary.org) if you're interested! Please note that while text chat is an option for this program, a headset and microphone are preferred.

*The "epicness" of these quests is subjective. To some people, getting rid of rats in the basement is super epic, right? Right?? Where's everybody going?!
