The Dungeon Dwellers Club has been present on the Sterling Campus for just over two years since it’s introduction in late 2016. In those years, it has become one of the most active clubs on campus while holding individual meetings for specific games and campaigns throughout the school year as well as its required two events per semester.

One popular game hosted in individual meetings is “D&D” (“Dungeons and Dragons”). “Dungeons and Dragons” is an RPG (“Role-Playing-Game”) in which few or several players can delve into guided quests throughout imaginary realms in what can only be described as a “turn-based, dice-rolling interactive story”. Each campaign consists of a single story line, multiple characters and a “DM” (“Dungeon Master”) who assists players and helps construct the narrative flow of each meeting.

The club has had massive success in student interest over the last year. Dungeon Dwellers President, Seth Kite is happy with the club’s growth.

“We have seven campaigns currently running on campus, which is decently high-numbered considering we only have three DMs,” Kite said.

The “Game Night” event lasted until 9 P.M. and was primarily focused on chess, checkers, and a tabletop card game called “Dominion”. There were around twenty students and guests in attendance at the event, and many expressed their fondness of the event.

Blain Holdman, a Freshman at Sterling attended his first “Dungeon Dwellers” event on Saturday.

“It was actually very good. The people were nice and welcoming. It was great. If they were to hold another event in the future, I would consider attending,” Holdman said.

Kite was pleased with the turn-out of the event.

“I think this is actually the singular most successful event the Dungeon Dwellers club has ever had,” Kite said, “at least five people [who attended] were not club members.”
