D&D Week 1

For this week, we did our first session of Dungeons & Dragons. I have past experience with the game, but it had been a while since I last played it, so I was excited for this game coming up. Our session started off by introducing everybody and their characters and getting a good understanding of how the game works and what to expect. We then got into game and got some interactions and did a combat scenario. Overall, we got a good start to the session.

                Personally, I like D&D a lot, but have not played it as much as I would like to. My personal favorite things about the game are that you are only really limited by your imagination as you can create your own character and background for that character. All of the interactions are off script for the players, and it allows for great moments to happen.

                For leadership, I would say this game relates to that because you sort of fulfill a role in the game. You do not typically operate as you would in real life and have to play out scenarios like you believe your character would. You also need to be able to lead through conversations and decision making in the game. Being able to think of ways to use your character’s skills efficiently is very helpful for everybody in the party.
