Unfortunately, this also makes them known to those that would seek the opportunity to steal their glory and riches. This story occurs in a place that has experienced this struggle for millennia. New threats emerge as old threats become rivals through the tides of time. This story... your story... is another chapter of this ancient struggle.

Registration is required for this program. Players will need to create a free account on Roll20.net and be able to join a Zoom meeting for voice chat.

Live Online-Discover Historic New England: American Rebels
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

American Rebels coverLearn how the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy families fanned the flames of the revolution. Our presenter, Nina Sankovitch, wrote a book that was published earlier this year that explores how the desire for independence cut across class lines and bound people together, leaving loyalists behind as rebels pursued the common goals of opportunity, liberty, and stability.

Nina Sankovitch is the author of several nonfiction books, most recently The Lowells of Massachusetts. She has written for The New York Times and The Huffington Post. A graduate of Tufts University and Harvard Law School, Sankovitch grew up in Illinois and currently lives in Connecticut.

Please note: There is no wait list for this program, but we will be running more campaigns in the coming months. Check back in June for registration for July's campaign and for a special Harry Potter-themed D&D game.

We're taking our adventures onling using the Roll20 platform! Join us for our first three week adventure: The City That Was. The greatness of a dwarven citadel is measured by its greatness of wealth. The dwarves steadily work mines and forges to fuel the wealth needed to make their presence known throughout the realms. Unfortunately, this also makes them known to those that would seek the opportunity to steal their glory and riches. This story occurs in a place that has experienced this struggle for millennia. New threats emerge as old threats become rivals through the tides of time. This story... your story... is another chapter of this ancient struggle.

Registration is required for this program. Players will need to create a free account on Roll20.net and be able to join a Zoom meeting for voice chat. Character sheets and a tutorial on how to use Roll20 as a player will be provided in the first session!
