Gainesville’s Dungeons and Dragons Brunch
Gainesville brunchettes formed an adventuring party at Vine Sourdough Bakery for their July brunch. The theme was Dungeons and Dragons!
Most Gainesville brunchettes have played some form of Dungeons and Dragons, also called DnD or D&D. Character sheets were discussed over hot bakery items.
Dungeons and Dragons allows each player to create their own character to embark upon adventures. A Dungeon Master serves as the game’s referee and storyteller while maintaining the setting in which the adventures occur, and playing the role of the inhabitants of the game world. The characters form a party and solve dilemmas, engage in battles, and gather treasure and knowledge. Characters earn experience points in order to rise in levels and become increasingly powerful over a series of separate gaming sessions.
Dungeons and Dragons was first published in 1974. It has since grown into a cultural phenomenon, with more players than ever before. Shows like Stranger Things, Community, and The Big Bang Theory feature DnD gameplay.
While the brunch was too short to play a session of the game, Brunchettes were able to color pages from the official Dungeons and Dragons coloring book.
Each brunchettes received a swag bag made by Officers Emily and Megan. They had dragon rubber duckies, stickers, candy, and a D20, which is a 20-sided die often used to play role-playing games.
