The AANE DnD Interest Series will be led by two seasoned Dungeon Masters, Nick Gallop and Nick Haslam.

Nick Gallop has been working at AANE for 3  years, and more importantly, playing DnD for 8. As one of the Dungeon Masters, he hopes to facilitate a fun and fair time for everyone! As a player character, his usual build is a two-handed, weapon-wielding barbarian. (nick.gallop@aane.org)

Nick Haslam has been working at AANE for 6 years. He was first introduced to DnD over 20 years ago, but has been campaigning for the last 5. He’s looking forward to running a great campaign as the other Dungeon Master! As a player, he favors gish characters.


We will use Zoom to host the interest series meetings when we can’t meet in person.  You will need:

• a computer or tablet. (You can use a mobile phone, but it won’t be quite as good.)

• an Internet connection

• a webcam so you can see and interact with other players.

You aren’t required to install anything on your computer or tablet in order to use Zoom, but some people do find it helpful to download the Zoom client. https://zoom.us/download

If you have never used Zoom, before you attend the interest series, we strongly suggest that you visit: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us

Once you have completed your two-step registration process, you will receive a registration confirmation email that will include the link to the Zoom meetings.

Note: AANE Adult Services programs are intended for post-high school adults only.
