Introductory D&D Adventure
First Session: Saturday -- September 28th, 2013 -- 5:00 PM
Approx. Length: 1 session
This is a level 1 adventure run by a Meetup Dungeon Master to introduce new players to the meetup, to the Campaign Gaming rules, and to teach people how to play Dungeons & Dragons. Of course long-term meetup members are welcome to join in the fun and meet new members, but brand new members get priority seating via an artificially inflated 100 RSVP score.
This is not always the same D&D adventure. The Dungeon Masters are given a list of level 1 adventures to choose from. They will state in the comments section the name of the adventure and a little teaser text on what players can look forward to.
Look for Dungeon Master's who have earned high numbers in the "DM Feedback" section next to their name. If they have not earned votes, they themselves are most likely beginners, or not vetted by this meetup yet. It is like buying something from someone on Ebay that has no feedback: you are taking all the risk into your own hands. Also avoid Dungeon Master's who do not put a real picture of themselves on their profile.

| Oct 2, 2013 6:58 PM || - Cris A.:|| Thank you for the reminder! Giselle and I both enjoyed the session immensely, so thank you for putting on such a fun game!|
| Oct 1, 2013 2:39 PM || - Lisa:|| Hi Cris, Giselle, and Max. This is just a reminder for you to log back into rpg connect and vote for your favorite players and DM in our game. This is how you get a higher score on rpg connect, which makes getting into other games easier. A person needs 3 votes in order to get their score raised.|
| Sep 28, 2013 11:35 PM || - Max Ximenez:|| Yeah, great game today, everyone! I hope to see you again, soon! Kyle- if you can get a group going in Yonkers (especially on the weekend) I might be able to make it up from Riverdale, if you wanna talk further, fire me off a line at firstname.lastname@example.org|
| Sep 28, 2013 10:42 PM || - Kyle:|| Had a blast today Lisa, thanks for the fun game!|
| Sep 28, 2013 11:30 AM || - Hobbit Girl:|| Hi Lisa and all,|
Fizzies and I have a class (a one time class) that starts at 6:30 on the upper west side...we can come meet everyone form 5-6 if you like, but cannot stay longer today. We have lots of experience with really old D&D but do not know any of the newer systems. we do not have pre-rolled characters so we would have to roll new ones. We can roll up new characters this am with instructions. Next week we would be more available.
| Sep 28, 2013 7:19 AM || - Kyle:|| I'm still on for today, lisa and I have some extra characters but it seems we won't need them, hpoefully hobbit girl and fizzies decide to come but we'll be fine either way.....|
| Sep 28, 2013 1:27 AM || - Konch:|| Sorry how last minute this is, but I'm afraid I can't make it tomorrow/today. Hopefully I will be able to stock up on poisons another time. |
| Sep 27, 2013 6:12 PM || - Cris A.:|| Hey there! Giselle is new to 4e, although she has all the books, and she's looking forward to seeing 4e in practice! She has a little experience with NEXT, but she's mostly new to playing D&D. I have a bit more experience in 4e, and I am coming along with her for fun - and for a practical review of some concepts such as charges, ect. We're looking forward to the game tomorrow.|
| Sep 27, 2013 5:39 PM || - Lisa:|| Also, Hobbit Girl and Fizzies, there is still room for you to join if you are interested.|
| Sep 27, 2013 5:39 PM || - Lisa:|| Cris and Giselle, can you tell me a little about your d&d experience so I can prep for tomorrow? Hopefully I will also see Kyle and Dan there. Should make a good group. |
| Sep 27, 2013 7:03 AM || - Kyle:|| As long as we can stop at the local Foechuckle's for some supplies it sounds like a good time!|
| Sep 21, 2013 2:53 PM || - Monica R.:|| Sorry guys, need to drop as I won't be in town anymore for that weekend. Hope I can join in a future intro game like this!|
| Sep 21, 2013 1:56 PM || - Konch:|| Sounds good|
| Sep 20, 2013 11:11 PM || - Lisa:|| Kyle and Konch/Dan, you are both welcome to come and play as assistants. If you do, bring one lvl 1 character for yourself and another one of a different type that you are really familiar with (i.e. if you bring defender for yourself, bring a separate striker). Maybe you can sit with whomever needs help learning and show them how to play the character you brought. Sound good?|
| Sep 20, 2013 8:45 PM || - Kyle:|| Hey, lisa do you mind if I come to the game and offer some help? I mostly want to hear more of your voice acting!!|
| Sep 20, 2013 2:17 PM || - Lisa:|| Hi Max. Friend me on Facebook at Lisa Reinke and we can discuss it without spamming everyone else.|
| Sep 20, 2013 1:51 AM || - Max Ximenez:|| I'm in a unique situation: A group of friends all spontaneously decided we wanted to play D&D with none of us having any experience, and I kinda drew the shortest straw and was forced to be DM... and was terrible at it. So I'm mostly doing this to better familiarize myself with 4e's rules.|
| Sep 20, 2013 1:31 AM || - Lisa:|| I'm fine with anything that's okay with the houserules. Warforged and Artificers are fine, but no hybrids. Check out the houserules in the link above that says "Campaign Rules." Most doesn't apply since it's a lvl 1 game, but it's good to familiarize yourself with them if you play other stuff on this site.|
| Sep 20, 2013 1:27 AM || - Max Ximenez:|| Hey, question: are Warforged and Artificers legal for this game, or are you sticking to core books?|
| Sep 18, 2013 4:48 PM || - Dorrin:|| I'm going to have to drop out. Last minute travel for work on the 28th. have fun everyone|
| Sep 16, 2013 9:01 PM || - Dorrin:|| Hi, all. I'm familiar with the rules but I've only joined one meetup before. I'd love to help out where needed(character creation, sample characters, dice, supplies,etc)|
| Sep 15, 2013 1:43 PM || - Lisa:|| We will be meeting at this location: Citigroup Center Public Lobby / 153 E. 53rd Street, New York, NY |
| Sep 15, 2013 1:40 PM || - Lisa:|| It will be useful if you bring a copy of the first 15 pages of this document with you. It is the general rules of play: http://files.meetup.com/47098/D%26D%204th%20ed.%20QuickStartRules.pdf|
| Sep 15, 2013 1:26 PM || - Lisa:|| The game will last around 3 hours.|
| Sep 15, 2013 1:25 PM || - Lisa:|| I do ask that you purchase a set of gaming dice, or borrow it from someone. Places I recommend buying dice at are The Twenty Sided Store 362 Grand St. Brooklyn, NY 11211 or The Compleat Strategist New York City Location / 11 East 33rd Street (between Madison and Fifth Avenue)|
| Sep 15, 2013 1:22 PM || - Lisa:|| This is a Dungeons and Dragons 4.0 game. If you know how to play well enough to make your own character, feel free to create a level 1 character. However, if you are unsure of how to make a character, or if you are unsure of how to read the character sheet, I ask that you do not come with a character. I will provide you with a character that I am very familiar with, so that I will be able to quickly and easily teach you how to play it.|
| Sep 15, 2013 1:18 PM || - Lisa:|| I will be running the module "Prey for Smiley Bob." If you are not an introductory player, feel free to sign up as well. I know Saturday nights are not great for most people, but it is the only time I am default in Manhattan.|
