Community Notes

Leading your team of inexperienced adventurers, you burst through the castle door and standing in front of you are the final beasts: training and evaluation. Most would fear these monsters but not you and your team; you’ve been preparing for this all along. Using teamwork and communication you easily defeat the beasts and are rewarded with skill points and badges, huzzah!

In this session, you'll learn how to gamify your training and evaluations using Dungeons and Dragons, fill out your own character sheet, and participate in a D&D encounter to solve a real life problem.

Warning: Peanut products will be used during this session, may not be suitable for people with peanut allergies.
