Dungeons and Dragons    THIS STUDY GROUP IS FULL

You knew you should not have touched that jewel, but it looked so pretty, so valuable, so …precious…  As soon as you laid a finger on it, you found yourself teleported to a chamber, containing a few other humanoids who seem to be as bewildered as you are.  No time for small talk though, as you realize the walls are slowly moving towards each other – you need to escape before you become a squished mess! Bring your character from the Fall study group, or create a new one (whether or not you were with us before), and play D&D fifth edition in a traditional D&D fantasy setting.  We’ll use the three pillars of D&D – exploration, social interaction, and combat – to take your characters on a roleplaying adventure.
