Longview Recreation Complex is proud to offer the roleplaying game Dungeons and Dragons. The structure to the stories brings new ways to determine the consequences of the adventurers’ actions. Players roll dice to determine whether their attacks hit or miss and whether their characters can scale a cliff, roll away from the strike of a magical lightning bolt, or pull off some other dangerous task.  Anything is possible, but the dice make some things more probable than others.  Dice will be provided.

In "Dungeons and Dragons: Dragon of Icespire Peak," adventurers will complete quests for the town of Phandalin culminating in a battle against Cryovain the white dragon.

No experience, knowledge, or supplies are necessary
