*REGISTRATION FULL* Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Party

Teens ages 13–18 are invited to a special one-shot Dungeons and Dragons event for all skill levels from 1–4 pm on Saturday, July 23 at the Grants Pass branch. Beginners are welcome and cosplay is encouraged!

During this introduction to adventuring with a party, an experienced Dungeon Master will guide participants on a quest through a town that is being terrorized by a nefarious goblin named “Dib” and his minions. Dice and pre-generated characters will be provided; and snacks will be available.

Space is limited and registration is required.
