How do I join?

We are excited you want to join! We have game sessions scheduled at our Middleton and Sun Prairie locations. Check our Event Reservations page for times and locations and to make reservations.

If you're interested in joining but can't make it to a scheduled event, you can let us know on Facebook or message Mark or any of our helpful DMs. You're also welcome to stop in one of the stores on a whim!

I don't know how to play!

We love new players. Brightshore is a world that is changing each time a player plays a session, so the more players, the richer and fuller our world gets. If you've never played before, we can lend you character sheets, dice, and a helpful instructor on an introductory adventure.

If you're learning D&D from another system or edition, let us know! A lot of our DMs have played multiple systems and can help you “translate” or guide you toward any resources you may want or need.
