Dungeons and Dragons

Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Club

The Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Club is a new pilot program that Autism Nova Scotia will be offering starting in February, 2017 for adults with autism ages 18 and up.

What is D&D?
“D&D is the first fantasy roleplaying game, in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This new kind of game has become immensely popular over the years. The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes and daring rescues.” (Wizards of the Coast LLC, n.d.)
About the D&D Club
D&D Club will bring together adults with autism who share similar interests in fantasy and role-playing based games weekly to play D&D. Each group will be led by a Dungeon Master (DM) and supported by another volunteer. Groups will range in size from 3-5 participants.
Participants will learn how to develop their characters while interacting and socializing with peers in a safe supportive environment.
We will be using the 5th Edition of Dungeons and Dragons.
Activities will include:
- developing characters                               
- role playing
- interacting with peers

This program is part of a research study through Saint Mary’s University on social skill development through roleplaying based games. Taking part in the study component is optional. Opting out of the study will not impact the participant’s enrollment in the program itself.
