Bridgewater, Va.- Bridgewater College’s Dungeons and Dragons club recently hosted a one-shot campaign during the Love in All Forms event held by CEAT. The club plans to host more in the future as they continue their regular campaigns but is facing issues with receiving funding for the club.

What’s New?

  • During the Love in All Forms event, senior and president of the Dungeons and Dragons club Rachel Cubbage held a one-shot campaign, which is a campaign meant to be completed in just a few hours. The club is looking to host more one-shot events on the weekends.
  • “We are hoping to have one every week either on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday for anyone who is interested in trying out D&D to join,” said Cubbage.
  • Treasurer Owen Wood is also trying to establish a library of Dungeons and Dragons resources including dice and books so club members can be involved without spending money beforehand, but the club is having issues accessing their funding.

Why it Matters:

  • Including more one-shot campaigns will allow more people to play Dungeons and Dragons without committing to a campaign that could last weeks, and having a library of resources will make the game more accessible.
  • “The one-shots get people used to the mechanics, the story and the environment of D&D,” said Wood. “The library serves as tools to help people along the way.”

What’s Ahead:

  • In addition to trying to plan weekend one-shot campaigns, the club is also looking at fundraising or receiving funding through local businesses instead of the college.
