D&D program at the Royal Ontario Museum

Posted by WJWalton on Mon 12 of March, 2012 06:07 PDT
The Royal Ontario Museum is offering a five-day program on the historical inspirations for the mythological elements of Dungeons & Dragons that sounds like a lot of fun:
Learn about legends, monsters, scrolls, and weapons from the actual cultures and artifacts upon which Dungeons & Dragons-style games are based. Use your imagination to bring it all to life while playing an on-going campaign in a ROM-inspired D&D world. Create characters, build models, and try to stay on the Dungeon Master’s good side!
The bad news: We're already missing it. The program starts today.

The worse news: The program costs $310 (or just $280 for members!). I'm assuming this is in Canadian dollars - but regardless, that's a lot of money.

The amazing news: IT'S SOLD OUT. (At least, according to the comment thread on reddit.com/r/rpg, where I found this link.)
