Middle School Dungeons & Dragons Adventurers' League: June 12 - July 31

Middle School D&D Adventurers League

The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. 
In Dungeons & Dragons, each player creates an adventurer (also called a character) and teams up with other adventurers (played by friends). Working together, the group might explore a dark dungeon, a ruined city, a haunted castle, a lost temple deep in a jungle, or a lava-filled cavern beneath a mysterious mountain. The adventures can solve puzzles, talk with other characters, battle fantastic monsters, and discover fabulous magic items and other treasure. 
Gain experience and power as you trek across uncharted lands with your companions. The world needs heroes. Will you answer the call?
