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

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.
