Dungeons and Dragons Club

Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game, based around dice-rolling and fantasy adventures. It can be great fun to play with friends and create a character from scratch to play. As of now, there is a DnD club in St. MacDara’s for anyone who cares to join. It will be going on from 1PM to 2:30PM on a Wednsesday afternoon in the library. If you want to join, you should take a look at https://www.dndbeyond.com/ in order to create a character. We look forward to seeing you there!
