Roll for Initiative: Dungeons & Dragons One-Shot Adventures

Dragon versus Warrior

Join CSUSM’s Literature and Writing Studies Department (LTWR) for a series of virtual D&D 5e one-shot adventures, hosted by your Dungeon Master, Professor Francesco Levato.

Game sessions run during Fall and Spring semesters, and each session will feature a complete one-shot adventure for up to six players. New and experienced players are welcome. For each adventure, we will be creating our own characters. If you’re new to the game and would rather use a pre-generated character, Professor Levato will have a selection of them available for you to choose from.

We will play using Zoom for voice and video, Roll20 for virtual battle mats, and D&D Beyond for character sheets.

You are a member of the Guild of the Surprisingly Confident, problem solvers extraordinaire. There is no dungeon too dark, no artifact too lost, no monster too big—at least that’s what the sign, written in letters a bit too big and perhaps too bold, over the guildhall door proclaims. It’s also what guild master Skoggum Dragonchew reminds you of each time he sends you on a mission you’re certain will end in particularly horrible ways. But this is what you signed up for, a life of ballad-worthy deeds, performed for obscene amounts of gold—which is, of course, what you tell yourself as Skoggum strides into guild commons with a fistful of new job posts.

Are you ready to brave another adventuring season?
Of course you are! Join us in the guildhall on the following dates to receive your next mission.
