Having a copy of the Player's Handbook (available at Fair Game) or the D&D Basic Rules (which are available for free) will be helpful, though far from necessary.
New players are encouraged to choose a pregenerated character during their first session. Experienced players can create their own character following the rules outlined here. Players who have participated in our program are invited to bring back their character from previous seasons.
Pencils, miniatures, terrain, rulebooks and other peripherals will be provided by the store for each game. Players will not need to provide these materials.
If your participant has never been involved with the YDND program before, they will receive a character sheet and dice during the first session. These are theirs to keep, though they must bring back these materials for subsequent sessions.
Players are invited to bring other things, like miniatures and rulebooks, with them to the session, though these are not required.
The store sells soda and water bottles (and sometimes snacks). Participants are also invited to bring snacks and drinks from home (though messy foods should be avoided).
