You step through the entryway, and an old Librarian in dusty grey robes greets you while holding her torch. “Welcome, traveler, to the Library of Babel.” Before you are free to explore, the Librarian offers a warning, “Whatever you dreamed, within these walls it’s real.”
 
Dungeons & Dragons is a tabletop role-playing game published by Wizards of the Coast. Armed with dice and creativity, along with the help of your seasoned guides, we will take the first step into a new world that you and your companions create. For two days you’ll find inspiration with field trips to the Main Library, the Contemporary Art Museum, and the outdoors; then you’ll dive into a new story over the next three days as a character of your own creation. As you chart your course through the unknown, face challenges that test your courage, intuition and intellect, will you be the one to write your ending, and change the fate of the world?
 
Also, snacks.*
 
*All snacks and materials will be provided, including a notebook for your journey, an immortal pencil, and your own set of polyhedral dice and carrying bag. You are welcome to bring your own favorite notebook, pen, or dice if you would like.
