FAQs

BUT I’VE NEVER PLAYED D&D BEFORE, I’M NERVOUS!
You’ll be playing with people just as new as you most likely! Will (your host) and Susanah (your DM) are very approachable and friendly, so if you have any questions or concerns don’t be afraid to ask. They’re used to helping out!

HOW LONG UNTIL I GET IN A GAME?
Depending on how many people are signed up, it can take as long as 2-3 weeks to get into the game. That being said, sometimes it can be much quicker! We want everyone to have a chance to play D&D.

SO CAN I ONLY PLAY ONE GAME?
No! You can come back on multiple weeks if you so desire, but bear in mind that we’re always trying to get new players in, and so spaces aren’t too easy to come by. Make sure that you message Will about this; he’s a busy man and you can’t rely on him to reach out to you. Be proactive!

CAN I HOMEBREW MY CHARACTER’S RACE/CLASS/BACKGROUND
Unfortunately, since we have well over 100 players already rotating into these game it’s already difficult enough to keep track of characters and party balance. So we restrict characters to only content published by WotC. As a courtesy, please let us know if you are using a race or class outside of the Player’s Handbook (such as Volo’s Guide to Monsters or Sword Coast Adventure Guide).
