Hark! All Dungeon Masters, charismatic characters, and aspiring authors! This is the course for you.
Together, over 8 weeks you will learn what makes Tabletop RPGs like D&D and Pathfinder so captivating, and how those systems tell such compelling stories. You’ll write an original outline for a campaign or the foundation for your short story or novel. By breaking down elements of storytelling piece by piece, your skills will improve, and you’ll get to create something of your very own.
This course is meant for aspiring writers, dungeon masters, and creative storytellers of all kinds. Over the 8 weeks, each student will develop a fleshed-out foundation for a creative writing story or a Tabletop Role-Playing Game campaign. Each week will result in one facet of the foundation being completed. The weekly facets can range from the story structure to the villain themselves.
What if I am a new player or writer? What if I am an experienced player or writer?
- This course is meant for every level of TTRPG player and writer! Of course, a foundation of both may make the course’s concepts more accessible for the student, but it isn’t necessary for success. There’s a larger focus on what makes up a good story or campaign, less so about the experience making them.
Note to Parents:
- Most of the time, this course will require 2-3 hours of work outside of the webinar. It is important students have enough time to work so they can have a more rewarding learning experience.
- Students will need to create an account on D&D Beyond, which requires an email address. No purchases are required.
