Bruncheons & Dragons offers beginner-friendly Dungeons and Dragons with a twist: brunch

caption arrowCaption
Bruncheons & Dragons combines two important things in your life: brunch and Dungeons & Dragons. The event is sponsored by ATL D&D, a Dungeons & Dragons group that runs weeky events in Atlanta, and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. The event is beginner friendly, and pregenerated character sheets will be available for newbies. Each group will consist of six players and one dungeon master. Everyone who buys a ticket will be entered into a raffle for prizes.

Wizards who brunch will want to make their way to Diesel Filling Station next week for Bruncheons & Dragons.

During the event, dubbed "Summer in Hell," characters might "defend a sleepy beachside resort from a demonic invasion, help escort a succubus and her entourage on a tour of the material plane, or climb the basalt mountains of Avernus to find Asmodeus's personal day spa," its Eventbrite description states.

If you’ve never been to brunch before, it’s a hybrid meal of breakfast and lunch.

If you’ve never played Dungeons & Dragons before, it’s a fantasy role-playing game.

You need not be experienced at either to enjoy Bruncheons & Dragons, however. The August 4 event is beginner-friendly, with pregenerated character sheets available free of charge. Experienced players can bring their own dice, character sheets, and other materials if desired.

How it works

  • Everyone who purchases a ticket will be seated at a table with a dungeon master. The dungeon master runs the game, controls the pace of the story and referees the action.
  • Each group will consist of six players and one dungeon master.
  • Table assignment will be random unless you specify your preferred DM or other players you would like to be seated with.
  • Each player will receive one raffle ticket for the door prize drawing at 3 p.m.

Bruncheons & Dragons will be 12:30-5 p.m., August 4 at Diesel Filling Station, 870 North Highland Ave. NE, Atanta, GA 30306

Tickets are $6-10 and can be purchased through the event's Facebook page or via Eventbrite.

The event is open to barbarians and bards, rangers and rogues, but Diesel is a 21 and over establishment that allows smoking. Games will be on the patio, with food and drink specials all day.
