Dungeons & Dragons, the epic fantasy role-playing game where players craft characters to take on magical quests that can change with the roll of the dice, comes to 826NYC! Students in grades 5-8 are invited to join this band of adventurous authors who will play out an entirely original tale and chronicle their fantastical deeds in character point-of-view journals, histories, and scene writing. And of course, sometimes the greatest gift is the friends we make — and make up — along the way.
