Interested in holding Dungeons & Dragons events at your store but not sure where to find an experienced Dungeon Master (DM) to run them?

We recommend taking the following steps:

  1. Ask your regular D&D customers if they would like to volunteer to run some of your events.
    • Consider offering incentives for a person willing to be your Dungeon Master.
  2. Use the Wizards D&D Community website to advertise that you're looking for a Dungeon Master.
  3. Spread the word through your store's social media channels and your players.

There is no official certification to become a Dungeon Master, just experience and a love for the game!
