The Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) Club is a program that Autism Nova Scotia offers for youth and adults with autism ages 13 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
- interacting with peers
