Tabletop role-playing games (RPG's) are a unique and exciting way to share adventures in fantasy or science fiction-based worlds filled with danger and wonder. Central to this experience is the Game Master (GM) or Dungeon Master (DM). These individuals plan the adventure, set the stage, narrate the action, and portrays friend and foe to the adventuring party. This ONLINE course will teach you concepts like how to plan adventures, create and portray 2-dimensional non-player characters, and lead your players from the ordinary world to the extraordinary.

You will learn:

  • Strategies for understanding and balancing the game rules
  • How to research, organize, and prepare details for structured yet engaging adventures
  • Techniques to understand player stats and manage player dynamics
  • Improvisation techniques and how to improve storytelling to get players roleplaying and thinking creatively


  • No prior knowledge or experience is required
