On Saturday, November 4 at 2:00pm, Luke Kramer will discuss fantasy character archetypes in pop culture at Castlerock Museum in Alma, Wisconsin. Afterwards, visitors will have the opportunity to try their hand at playing Dungeons & Dragons, a popular role playing game.
The lecture will cover common character archetypes such as the fighter, cleric, rogue, and wizard in fantasy movies, television shows, video games, and board games. It will also touch on the historical basis for these archetypes and the weapons and armor that they are often depicted as using.
After the lecture, museum volunteers will lead visitors through a short Dungeons & Dragons adventure with low level pre-generated characters. This is a great opportunity for first time players to learn how to play the game. Signup sheets will be available for those that want to play.
Luke Kramer is a fencing instructor with Driftless HEMA in Galesville, Wisconsin with a passion for electronic and tabletop gaming.
Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students. Children four and under are free. Members receive a 50% discount. Contact the museum at 608.685.4231 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Castlerock Museum is an arms and armor museum; our exhibits include arms and armor from many points in European history. A visit offers the chance to view and learn about authentic armor spanning many periods; the collection begins with ancient Greece, and concludes in the early modern period. To provide a better sense of the many different cultures our arms and armor originates from, we enrich our displays by using art prints to show the arms and armor in their historical context.
The Alma Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center is located in the Wings Over Alma Building on Main Street. Let us know if you have any questions or comments. We are happy to provide more details. Please email us 24/7 or call us to learn more.
