If you've ever dreamt of embarking on epic quests, battling dragons, and weaving tales of heroism, this is your call to adventure.
In the enchanting world of Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), where imagination takes flight and fantasy worlds come to life, a new and exciting adventure is about to unfold. Introducing IMPACT Community Services’ new D&D group tailored specifically for individuals on the autism spectrum, and led by our newly crowned Dungeon Master, Trent.
Trent began his D&D journey at the age of just 13 years, when his dad dragged him along to his role-playing group.
“He wanted me to be able to develop my social skills, get out there, express myself a bit more, and just have some fun.”
“My first character was basically a centaur ranger, which is basically a person who has a bow and arrow to do combat. Working out the mathematics to jump from rock hill to rock hill, covering my teammates while they’re trying to cast spells or getaway is my jam.”
Now, as Dungeon Master, Trent is responsible for crafting and narrating the game world, controlling non-player characters, setting challenges, and facilitating the overall gaming experience for the players. In essence, he is both a storyteller and a referee, responsible for weaving a compelling narrative while ensuring a fair and engaging gaming experience.
What truly sets this group, and the Dungeon Master himself, apart however, is the unwavering commitment to ensuring that every player feels supported, heard, valued, and empowered to embark on their epic quests.
“Ideally you want to sit with your group and discuss what they want to see in the game. I will then approach each player independently to discuss their character arc. Some like their character to be on a journey of self-growth, while others just like to wing it and see what happens.”
For more information, or to become a part of IMPACT’s D&D Group and immerse yourself in the magic, contact the NDIS team at IMPACT on 07 4326 3607. Alternatively, visit the IMPACT Community Services NDIS page.
The group's size will be limited to four players, allowing space for the inclusion of two support workers. This arrangement ensures that each participant receives the necessary level of support and assistance. Players must have an NDIS plan to join.
D&D will be held at IMPACT’s newly opened TechHaven, at IMPACT Community Services. A specific day and time is yet to be decided, and will be flexible depending on the availability of the Dungeon Master and players.
Your adventure awaits. Embrace the journey. Forge connections. Unleash your potential.
