Library D&D and other playdates during the pandemic

Throughout the Covd-19 pandemic libraries and community centers have had to find new ways to keep their communities connected and informed. Virtual D&D has been quite popular with libraries around the US and Canada. Now that pandemic-related restrictions are being reduced, in-person play of Dungeons and Dragons is starting to ramp up. The game has been especially important for school-age children who lose the connections that schools traditionally build.

Newspapers, magazines, and websites around the world are covering the booming phenomena, and not calling it a Satanic ritual that leads to murder.

Today’s Lore Collage is focused on playing the game in libraries, other community spaces, and advice for players and dungeon masters.

Advice for DMs

Quick random NPCs are handy.

As Always, Maps

From Boing Boing, we discover a way that non-artists can create maps, which I need! Or just play the Legend of Zelda map.

Maps don’t have to look like maps. They can be art that represents the scene and not just a place to move miniatures around.
