Dungeons & Dragons Teen Book Club

Back for a second year and an all new campaign, the intrepid adventurers of the UPL Dungeons & Dragons Teen Book Club will invoke the magic of Google Meeting to gather EVERY Wednesday from 3:15 until 5:00pm.

As always, no experience is required! Our amazing Dungeon Master, Marcus, will help you craft a character and learn the ropes while while our Lore Master, Clay, will provide free books and swag for participants each week during library grab-and-go hours (or by appointment).

Expect to read books, earn points, and return to your daily life richer in treasure and experience!

 2. Under the ‘Collections’ tab select ‘My Characters’.

 3. Click ‘Create A Character’ in the upper right corner.

 4. Select Standard Build.

 5. Under the ‘Home’ tab, give your character a name!  Then uncheck all ‘Sources’.  ‘Advancement Type’ should be XP not milestone.  Everything else should stay the same.

 10. When figuring out ‘Equipment,’ it’s up to you if you want to choose starting equipment or gold then buying your equipment.
