Dungeons and Dragons is riding a new surge in popularity. Join us for a glimpse into the compelling fun of D&D, a game that attracts and spawns writers in all genres.
Author and Dungeon Master T.R. Napper leads this one-shot D&D encounter with seasoned players, Luke Mercieca and Maddie Schnelle, and first-time player, author Margaret Hickey – who may well need a little audience assistance!
Following the encounter, our players will engage in discussion about the game, parallels between writing and role-playing, the vital elements of storytelling, and what D&D offers to the art and craft of creating characters and building narratives and worlds.
This will be an enormously fun and juicy night for anyone fascinated by the craft of storytelling and who loves nothing more than dwelling inside a good book, or a good game.
Includes a short interval. Snacks provided. Bar open from 5.30pm.
