“She fully embraced the occasional desire to escape real life.”

Dungeons & Dragons explained in 10 words or less.

the raven queen

“The Raven Queen had grown accustomed to her unkindness.”

A flock of ravens is generally referred to as an ‘unkindness’.

Why Everyone Should Play Dungeons & Dragons

As a socially awkward introvert, the very thought of partaking in any kind of role-playing activity generally has me ducking for cover. Instead, with some thorough coaxing from friends, I decided to give Dungeons & Dragons a go. I created a character who is a socially awkward introvert, therefore I am completely within my element.

It’s safe to say that I’m D&D obsessed. The narratives, the characters, the backstories, the hilarious highs and the downright soul crushing lows. The stories involved in this seemingly simple game are absolutely astoundingly awesome!
