DnDMelt’s Dungeons and Dragons Beginner’s bootcamp 201 – the second part of the DnD 4e Beginner’s Bootcamp series.


Saturday JANUARY 14, 2012

Time: 1-4pm

Now that you’ve taken DnDMelt’s Beginner’s Boot Camp 101 & have a character, how do you use it? What do all of the numbers on the sheet really mean? What are actions? What is initiative? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?!?!

Here will will take you step by step through a fighting encounter and show you how to use all the cool abilities you have chosen. Powers, Utilities, Feats, Skills. You got to pick them, now its time to use them.

The second part of the class we will show you different ways to utilize your character. Different ways to play. Ways to think outside of the box. Do you really need to fight that dragon? Maybe you could talk your way out of the situation. Maybe you should think your way out?
