Hope McSherry hosts an adventure across whimsical lands of imagination in a Dungeons and Dragons storytelling series. The campaign, The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, is full of character creation, treasure hunts, puzzles and more.

Dungeons and Dragons is a unique roleplaying game where players create a group of heroes that travels and works together to defeat whatever evils come their way. Over the course of their campaign, the party will face challenges, encounter monsters, and solve a core mystery while developing their backstory and forming connections to both the fictional characters around them and their real-life party members. The tone of this game is truly set by the players, and invites all shades of silliness, drama and intrigue.
