Check out D&D

Caden Trenary, Staff Reporter

Dungeons and Dragons, also known as D&D, has been around since 1974 created by American game designers Ernest Gary Gygax and David Arneson according to 

Today it is played by many people including junior Keaton Stewart. Stewart has been playing for four years and got interested in D&D through Stranger Things. 

“D&D really feels like an improv game with dice. The Dungeon Master describes everything they can to give you a mental image of what’s going on and then you as a player figure out what characters want to do or say,” said Stewart. “It really is a lot like acting, just not on stage.” 

Stewart plays in a friend group of seven every Sunday.

“What I love about D&D is the connection it makes with people. Your D&D group really does become a second family. You become so close to everyone as you all make your way through the various stories and worlds. It may take a second to find that group but once it’s there it’s something you’ll cherish for the rest of your life,” Stewart said. 

Stewart highly recommends playing D&D because it’s a great way to meet new people and create a safe space for while also building thinking, creative, and drama skills. 

Get some friends and create a campaign. The possibilities for D&D are endless so roll those dice and create some memories.
