Dungeons & Dragons
The Hero Workshop is an interactive storytelling workshop where we use role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons as a framework for our epic tale of adventure where the students are the heroes. Everyone in the group will design their own Hero by thinking deeply about what it is that makes someone a hero, and what kind of powers they would like their hero to have. Then we will learn about creating an adventure, and take our Heroes on an imaginative adventure using the fantasy worlds of Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition ruleset.
This class also explores more advanced Dungeons and Dragons skills, including creating encounters and learning how to be a Game/Dungeon Master.
Here are a list of concepts that students are exposed to in the Hero Workshop:
The Hero's Journey
Making decisions as a group, and cooperation
Cartography (map-making, and map-reading) Basic Math and Statistics reinforcement
Logic Puzzles in games
Role Playing Game Design
What makes a Scenario interesting?
