Weekend Warriors on Discord

Weekend Warriors -Teen Tabletop RPG Club

The Douglas County Public Library is hosting two hybrid tabletop RPG campaigns on alternating Saturdays from 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm. Players can either attend in person at the library or join in via the library Discord group. 

Please remember! Masks are required inside the library.

Our first campaign is in full swing as we take on the lengthy Call of Cthulhu campaign, Horror on the Orient Express every first and third Saturday.  *Seats are currently full, but spectator seats are always available!*

Our second campaign has just begun! Join us for a DnD campaign of Attack of the 50ft Bikini Werewolf every second and fourth Saturday. *Seats are open!*

Email the library at [email protected] to receive an invitation to our Discord server if you’d prefer to join digitally or to receive information about the current campaigns. For an invite to the server please provide your name, age, and library card number. The current campaigns are recommended for ages 13+.

Prior knowledge of the current systems is not needed to play and we’re always happy to help new players along the way. If you would just like to attend to see how the games work and to gauge your own interest, spectator spots are always available.

Please note this is for teens only, the rules are the same as any program, and no foul or sexually explicit language will be tolerated.
