HBRW 2022 - Tarquin's Dungeons & Dragons Multiverse EXTRAVAGANZA

HBAF 1170x504px Tarquin DD

In a Hawke's Bay, possibly world first, Gareth Ward brings together as many Dungeon Masters and their teams as will fit into an Opera House to play the largest collaborative game of Dungeons and Dragons the universe has ever seen.
All following the same story line, the teams will battle, magic and swindle their way through an epic adventure. Gather your team for the D&D game of a lifetime.
DMs will be provided - just sign up and come along and yes, you can sit with your mates (up to 6 of you at a table).

Gareth Ward, a.k.a. The Great Wardini is a magician, hypnotist, storyteller, bookseller and author. He has worked as a Royal Marine Commando, Police Officer, Evil Magician and Zombie. He basically likes jobs where you get to wear really cool hats – as writer and compere of Napier City’s inaugural Steampunk murder mystery evening he wore a rather splendid bowler.
Born in the town of Banbury in the UK, he attended the University of York where he gained a joint honours degree in Biology and Computer Science. If you want your cat reprogrammed, he’s your man.
He currently resides in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand where he runs two independent bookshops, Wardini Books and Wardini Books Napier with his wife Louise and son Max. With his daughter Alex he has developed a zombie apocalypse survival plan and is regularly disappointed when powercuts prove not to foreshadow the end of the world. He has a goldfish called Luna, a dog called Stevie Wonder and is certain his letter from Hogwarts has been lost in the post.
His first novel ,The Traitor and the Thief, a rip-roaring young adult Steampunk adventure, won the 2016 Storylines Tessa Duder Award, the 2018 Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Youth Novel, a 2018 Storylines Notable Book Award and was a finalist in two categories at The New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.
