About

Hi, my name is Sam and I run meetup events called D&D Newbie Sessions. The goal of these events is to introduce Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) to new people in a welcoming, friendly, and comfortable environment. This provides new players with a positive first experience and readies them for games with friends, family, and coworkers. The events primarily consist of one-shots which allow players to experience a wide range of what D&D has to offer without requiring the long-term commitment of an ongoing campaign. My games are open to everyone and always free.

After 1 year of running these events, I’ve introduced D&D to over 100 people. I am currently in the process of expanding into Minneapolis, Minnesota followed by 4 more large cities. I’m planning to run 3 games per week, each city bi-weekly. From there, I will get to know the Dungeon Master (DM) community in these cities and find other newbie-friendly DMs to host events. Once a city is more autonomous, I can continue expanding. My long-term goal is to be in most major cities. This creates a stable and reliable channel for newbie friendly games across the U.S. Anyone interested in learning D&D will have an immediate option. Anyone between games or parties will have an immediate option. Anyone who is bored and just looking for more D&D will have an immediate option. It’s sort of like D&D on-demand!

I’m also striving to be one of the best DMs in the world. Each game and the different parties challenge me in new ways. I study the outcome after every game and take notes about how I can improve and what I learned. As a result, I have grown my skills tremendously over the past year. I often share these results on my live stream to help other DMs learn from my mistakes. This is an important step, because, besides just running games, I want to contribute content back into the community. This will also involve publications of my stories and one-shots for the community to use.

Over the next 1-2 years, I will introduce hundreds more people to D&D. I will train new Dungeon Masters to help fill the demand for high quality, experienced DMs. I will do these things because this is my passion. For many years I’ve struggled to define who I am and why I’m here. It wasn’t until November 14th, 2019 that I stood alone in our dimly lit office and said 3 fateful words to myself, “this is it.” I teared up because for the first time in my life I realized what I was here for and where I was going. D&D leverages my natural talents and interests. It covers every base and brings joy and purpose into my life. I want to share that with others. So please consider supporting me on this adventure. I truly believe it will bring a lot of good into the D&D community.

Thank you for your consideration!

Note: I am working on a new video, but in the meantime, attached is the promo video for D&D Newbie Sessions in Denver, Colorado where I started.
