Be the Bard of Liv Ahwatukee Apartments
Have you ever played Dungeons & Dragons? Since it was first published in 1974, Dungeons & Dragons (abbreviated as D&D) has been a major focus of the role-playing game industry; for many people, it has filled hours upon hours with fun and challenging puzzles that players of all ages have enjoyed. If you’re unfamiliar with the basic mechanics of D&D, we warn you that our goal in today’s blog post is not to educate you. If you’d like to learn more about D&D, we encourage you to visit the Dungeons & Dragons website where you can find all the information that you’ll need.
In D&D, players control a character. Each character has a specific race (dwarf, human, elf, etc.) and a class, which is basically the kind of character you want to play (fighter, wizard, cleric, rogue, ranger, etc.). Today, we’d like to focus on the bard class.
Dungeons & Dragons encourages the idea that both words and music have power beyond vibrations and sounds. Bards are masters of song and speech. They are versatile, may prefer to watch combat from the sidelines all the while encouraging their party with magic which inspires their comrades. They are masters of talents, perfecting their musical skills beyond what others have accomplished.
This month, we’re encouraging our residents to be bards of our Liv Ahwatukee Apartments community. Before the month is out, take inventory of your talents and abilities. Write down different attributes that shape your character. Discover which traits you can focus on to improve upon, thus adding to our apartment community to make us stronger together. Are you a master of talents? We’d love to hear you say “yes” by the end of the month!
In the month of February, we’re going to build on this topic of Dungeons & Dragons. Think of the residents of Liv Ahwatukee Apartments as your party or group of heroes. Each week we’ll have a new task or objective appear in our blog, so be prepared for it! If you’re not part of our community in Phoenix, AZ, don’t worry. Follow along in your own community wherever you are located.
Thanks for reading!
