Tabletop Role-Playing Club

Join the Tabletop Role-Playing Club with us virtually on Wednesday, June 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

In a tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) you use your imagination. Together, the players and the Game Master craft a whole world of adventure! Will your character face the evil wizard head on, try to bargain their way out, or run away? That’s for you to decide and act out!

There are many TTRPG “systems” out there, from the well known Dungeons & Dragons to the huge variety of indie games like Kids on Bikes or Monster of the Week. Each has it’s own set of rules, usually involving dice and a bit of math, but the story is all up to you!

In this club we will use the Roll20 virtual platform to explore the wide, wide world of TTRPGs, usually in one-off sessions. Due to the nature of this style of game you will need a microphone, but a camera is optional.

Parfait au chocolat

While the oldest recipe named “parfait” was published in an 1869 French cookbook (it was coffee flavored), the chocolate parfait was created in 1894 in France.  Parfait literally means perfect in French!  There are a couple of ways to make parfaits. The traditional French-style uses sugar syrup, eggs, and cream. The American style layers parfait cream, ice cream, and flavored gelatin in a tall, clear glass topped with whipped cream, fruit and liqueurs. The parfait has recently taken a healthier approach using yogurt layered with nuts and fresh fruits, instead of ice cream and sugary syrups.

Today is all about the chocolate parfait because it’s National Chocolate Parfait Day!  That doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with other flavors. Fruit and cream go quite well with chocolate as well as crunchy favorites like pretzels or cookie bits. A delicious chocolate parfait would be a perfect way to end (or start) your day. Try this versatile recipe at home today.
