FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT CAN I DO TO GET READY FOR MY FIRST SESSION?
Try checking out the PLAYERS BASIC RULES
(PRINT VERSION) before your first time playing.
You might also want to check out some Youtube videos of people playing or explaining parts of the game.
That being said; there isn't anything out there that can beat just sitting down at a table with your friends and rolling some dice.
WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO PLAY?
A place to play
A large table and enough chairs to go around
Feel free to bring/make/order snacks and drinks
As long as everyone is sitting down and ready to play, everything else will be ready to go!
(Character sheets, Dice, Miniatures, Pencils, Paper, etc..)
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PLAY?
Each SESSION accommodates 2-4 people easily but several players can be added to a group (+$20 per person) without any issue.
Please keep in mind that the more people in a group, the more time combat and progression will take, which could affect how much progress your group is able to make in a single SESSION. For this reason we suggest any potential Sessions larger than 8 people break into two smaller Sessions. It’ll give everyone more of a chance to shine!
HOW MUCH DOES A SESSION COST?
A SESSION starts at $80 and is designed to be 4 hours, accommodating 2-4 people.
However, others can join the Session for $20/per person.
If the 4 hour Session ends and everyone wants to keep playing, the adventure can continue for $5 per hour/per person.
We can also provide a copy of the Official STARTER SET for you to keep. ($25)
WHAT IS THE OFFICIAL WIZARDS OF THE COAST DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS STARTER SET AND WHAT COMES WITH IT?
The Official STARTER SET It has a full set of dice, Rule & Adventure books, 5 official pre-generated characters, and is a great thing to have if starting our or given as a gift!
If you select the option to include a STARTER SET, your Session can include walking you through it all and explaining its components in detail while we go through as much of the included adventure as time will allow.
WHAT EDITION ARE WE PLAYING?
The vast majority of Sessions will be 5th Edition.
(Standard with officially published materials)
There may be some slight homebrew elements added for scaling or story telling purposes, but nothing that will impact the core game-play.
WHAT IF THERE IS A SPECIFIC SITUATION OR ADVENTURE TYPE WE HAVE IN MIND; DO YOU TAKE REQUESTS?
Heck yeah we do! D&D is an excellent tool for problem solving, independent thought, interpersonal communication, and team building, so if you have something in mind for your group we can try and incorporate it. If you're just looking to go up against a specific big bad, want to something or somewhere, or if you prefer a play style; we can also adapt.
I HATE ROLE-PLAYING GAMES AND I HATE YOU!
IS THIS FOR ME?
Woah, hey... you haven't even met me. Are you doing okay?
...and D&D has a little something for everyone! That's the perk of it being a fluid, sandbox-style adventure. It's your story; We just help narrate it. So if you want to spend hours at the market checking out nice pants and bartering with local artisans and craftspeople; we can do that.
If you want to spend every possible moment in combat testing both your blade and will; we can do that too.
If you want to get real deep into it and discuss the social-economical implications of the fantasy world at large and how it pertains to the general working classes; we can do that!
ARE THERE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS?
As long as you can read, pay attention to your surroundings, and interact with people without tears involved we will be happy to play with you!
SESSIONS with multiple children or young adults are easily possible but DM4HIRE cannot act as a stand-alone babysitter. We highly suggest a parent stick around and join in on the adventure because families that adventure together, stay together!
