THE SUNDERING OF MERLIN
Dungeons and Dragons, how does it work? It's an old question and it's one that can keep new Players from joining their first session, for fear they won't know what they're doing. In this game / class you'll play through an adventure based on the story of King Arthur, and by the end you'll have a solid grasp on the basics of combat, exploration, role-play.
We've crafted an exciting One-Shot adventure that has a little bit of everything you need to know to play Dungeons and Dragons, 5th Edition. You'll pick your favorite from some awesome pre-made characters, then your adventure begins (in a dungeon of course!).
This class provides a stress-free environment where you can spread your wings and learn to play the most popular Tabletop RPG in the world. D&D is a classic, and we're excited to help you begin your journey!

THE TALE UNFOLDS...
Six months ago the much beloved King Arthur was killed. Someone hid a poisonous snake in his bed, and though there were no witnesses many people believe that Arthur’s son, the cruel Sir Mordred, murdered his father. King Mordred was crowned the next day, and since then his soldiers have been rounding up dissidents, troublemakers, and those still loyal to his late father.
Guilty or not, your character was arrested by Mordred’s soldiers and dragged off to Newgate Prison at the foot of Castle Camelot. You see the heavy prison gate has been decorated with the rotting heads of Sir Lancelot, Sir Galahad, Sir Kay, and the rest of the Knights of the Round Table. They were good men, all.
Newgate is filled with a mix of violent criminals, petty thieves, and those still loyal to King Arthur and the Round Table. You spend the next week making contact with other notable prisoners. Perhaps there are enough of you to stage a prison break? Perhaps even a coup...
GWYLINE, A CLERIC
FOLLOWER OF SIR GALAHAD
As a young woman sequestered in a monastery, Gwyline became enamored with the saintly Sir Galahad. She followed in his footsteps and after years of hard training, became a Cleric and Sir Galahad's close companion. She was in the crowd, unable to help, when Mordred had him executed. As a Cleric, Gwyline is at home on the battlefield, wielding a mace and channeling holy magic gifted to her by her god, whom she serves.
CHOOSE YOUR CHARACTER
APOLLECH, A DRUID
EMISSARY OF THE LADY OF THE LAKE
As a baby, Apollech was taken by faeries. They took him to the Sylvan realm, where he was raised to adulthood by Nimue, the Lady of the Lake, a longtime ally of the late King Arthur. Apollech was captured when Mordred's men began their assault on the Old Forest. As a Druid, Apollech is a priest of the Old Faith. He wields the versatile powers of nature and can transform into animal forms such as a wolf or a giant wolf spider. He likes wolves.
BEREDIN, A FIGHTER
SIR LANCELOT'S SQUIRE
Beredin's talent for leadership saw him quickly rise through the ranks of King Arthur's army. Sir Lancelot chose him as his squire, and became his Mentor as well. Beredin was in line for a seat at the Round Table, but then Mordred struck. Lancelot and Beredin slew a dozen of Mordred's men, but there were just too many. As a fighter, Beredin is a skilled in martial combat, strong of arm and resilient. He has vowed to vanquish Mordred in the name of King Arthur!
ANGABETH, A ROGUE
QUEEN GUINEVERE'S LADY-IN-WAITING
Angabeth, a noble born girl, was sent to the castle at the age of 13. Under the direction of Queen Guinevere, she developed certain skills which she used to be the eyes and ears of the Queen. She loyally served the queen for three years before everything fell apart overnight. As a rogue, Angabeth is adept in the use of stealth and trickery, and lately she has been forced to resort to violence to keep herself safe here in Newgate Prison.
VORTIRAS, A WIZARD
Vortiras caught Merlin's eye as a bright, fire-magic-obsessed young man. As he trained under Merlin he payed little attention to the outside world, preferring the company of the books in Merlin's library. He was totally unprepared when Morgan le Fay attacked Merlin's tower. All he could do was watch as his master transformed into a dragon and did battle, slaying many, before being defeated. As a wizard, Vortiras is a scholarly magic-user who can manipulate reality.

I thought the class was a great experience for a beginner. Trevor was a great GM! Looking forward to definitely taking more classes to progress in my knowledge of D&D. It was also a great crash course in Roll20.
