Dungeons & Dragons club, held on Wednesdays during B block in room G210, will serve as a place for students to come together and create a world of their own. Students who attend will gain a better understanding of what the game is and how to play it. The first-ever meeting was held on Wednesday, March 27.

“I feel like Dungeons and Dragons is a good output for creative writing, character development [and] becoming more expressive,” club president senior Leo Ferary said. “[It’s also] an amazing way for people to get out of their shells [and] look through the eyes of another person, enabling them to enter the ‘world.’”

French teacher Alice French met Ferary through one of her French four students; after finding out their mutual interest in D&D, they began speaking about how they wished a D&D club was offered at school. French then mentioned she would sponsor his Dungeons & Dragons club if he decided to start one, in which he said yes to the idea.

“I decided to sponsor D&D club because I play it myself so I enjoy it and I thought it would be fun to see students get to know [and] play the game,” French said. “I hope to see students getting to be creative, feeling like they can be themselves, feeling comfortable [and] just having fun.”

Since hearing about the game from her friends, senior Kendall Smith became interested in the club and decided it was time for her to start playing too. She hopes the club can be a way to explore a new world without having to go too far from the real world.

“I feel like it’s long overdue since we have a game club, but it’s good we finally have a separate Dungeon and Dragons club,” Smith said. “I have not played before but I know a lot of people that play the game and it just sounded really really fun [so] I figured it was time that I play.”

Students who decide to join the club are not required to have previous experience playing. However, anyone who wishes to play D&D must first create their own characters and are able to choose their characters’ gender, race and class.

“You don’t need to know that much about D&D [since] Leo is planning on teaching people how to play the first couple of club meetings,” French said. “Once we all know how to play [and] all of the students have picked their characters, we’ll be playing short versions of D&D each week.”

Ferary and French hope this club will bring students together while playing D&D and want to see the students have fun. By creating this club, they hope students will feel comfortable enough to be able to build a team.

“Everyone is welcome to join, veterans and beginners,” Ferary said. “This club is meant to teach everyone the basics and is a story warped by them. I hope to achieve a lasting mark, in so that this club lasts for years to come. I hope for this club to help everyone to escape their shell or bubble.”
