Experiential Storytelling may be a branding buzzword that you’ve heard a lot of recently, but did you know that it’s a skill that can be picked up playing Dungeons & Dragons?
In these imaginary worlds riddled with heroes and monsters, not only do Dungeon Masters have to create complex dilemmas, but they also have to rapidly develop their quick thinking, problem solving, and impromptu speaking skills to fully immerse the players in their universe.
It doesn’t end with the DM, either. You as a player are also participating in an experiential storytelling exercise when you interact with the situations presented and other players.
Join us as we discuss the overarching strengths to be gained from this complex game, and how you can improve upon yourself, your game, and your professional work.
