Bard's Tale

Cat playing DnD

Back in the late 1980's there was an anime called "Record of Lodoss War".  It was a very popular series that was actually based on a script a group of people created while playing a Dungeons and Dragons style role playing game.  The Bard's Tale is a project where we will be recreating that experience.  Each morning we will spend time playing Dungeons and Dragons (or some other similar role playing game system depending on the group’s interest) and then spend the afternoon turning those game sessions into various types of media.  Authors can write short stories related to what happened in the gaming sessions.  Artists can create illustrations of their own or to combine with another participant's story.  You could create a serious or comical webcomic based on the gaming campaign.  Students could assemble and paint miniatures.  One year the students even wrote and filmed a few scenes and added in some computer graphics.  The creative options are only limited by your imagination.  Are you ready to join the party... the adventuring party?

Special Considerations

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  If a participant, experiences any overlapping CDC symptoms of COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with student pick-up. CDC's possible symptoms of COVID can be found here.

By selecting the above project(s,) you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
