On the eastern edge of the city state of Glasgu – a place where your neighbour is as likely to be a gnome or an elf as they are another human, and the university teaches magic not science – sits the Glasgu Women’s Library. They’re an institution dedicated to preserving and protecting women’s work. With rumours circulating of enchanted cattle and strange occurrences at a nearby inn, the Library needs volunteers to investigate. Will you be one of them?
Misogyny and Other Monsters: A GWL Dungeons and Dragons Game, Saturday 11th of December, Saturday 8th January, Saturday 12th February, Free, 1pm to 4pm, GWL, Women* only, 16+
Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy roleplaying game which combines collaborative storytelling and improvisation with the randomness of dice rolls. Each player takes on the role of one character and contributes to the story based on their character’s motivations and skills.
Misogyny and Other Monsters uses the tools and techniques of a standard DnD game but centres the story around women’s history in Glasgow. Be prepared for witchcraft, cursed books, and a cat called Smudge.
Dungeon Matron Becky has written this adventure with beginners in mind but more experienced players are also welcome. All resources will be provided, including player characters, so you can take your pick and play will start right away.
