Come and play a RPG inspired by Dungeons&Dragons in an environment of a shipwreck.

Make a four-member team and come play a fantasy game to our new exhibition by Jan Boháč and Viktor Dedek, which was created for a game inspired by Dungeons&Dragons.

Material needed to play (notebooks, writing utensils, special multi-faceted dice) will be available throughout the exhibition at the gallery entrance. However, you need to have your storyteller(s). Experienced players and beginners are welcome to come and play. A basic handbook will be available at the spot and the game is easy to learn: all you have to do is invent a story and its characters and identify with them. Respecting the exhibition authors' wish, your game should include at least one skeleton character.

As a single game can last for several hours, reservation is recommended, especially at weekends at: info@plato-ostrava.cz.

We are looking forward to your stories.

What is and how do you play Dungeons and Dragons?

This American “pen and paper” role-playing game (RPG) is played in small groups, using only a piece of paper or a notebook, a pen and special multi-faceted dice. The gaming group selects a player who pre-prepares the story and guides the other players through it. At the beginning of the game, the guide introduces the story to the players and asks questions to let them make their choice. Will the players head north alongside dangerous-looking rocks or south alongside the shore with high tide coming soon? The destiny of the characters is decided by throwing the dice. Is it 9 and less and the character escapes the battle alive or is it a higher number and he loses one of his lives? The goal of the game is to let the storyteller guide you to the end of the story and identify with your character and the situations as much as possible as you proceed – this is why it’s called a role-playing game. Such a journey can take several hours or a part of the day or night.
