Graphic Novels: From Paper to Cyberspace
Instructor: Cal Fish
Right now, student interest in comics and all types of digital storytelling is evident and passionate. This class will serve as a platform for developing a continued series of comics, feature length graphic novel, drawing, story-writing. It will also be an opportunity to learn about different styles of visual storytelling. We will explore making our drawings digital through both scanning/photography and digital drawing programs. Our digital comics will then become physical again through printing and multi-media collaboration. Students will be encouraged to follow through with their ideas and to continue with the stories and characters that initially excite them.

D&D Moonglow Tower
DM: Matt Rubin
Fables going back hundreds, maybe thousands of years tell of a traveling, tremendous tower that appears during misty nights where the full moon hangs high in the sky. It's said to be filled with finer and finer treasures, yet also deadlier and deadlier traps the further one travels up. These stories are often dismissed as just that - tall tales told by traveling storytellers trying to make easy coin. Every so often though, no more often than once every few years, new sightings of the tower begin to spring up, followed by smatterings of adventurers going off in search of it. Practically always, however, they return either empty-handed, or they don't return at all. And now, one misty, moonlit night outside the village of Norbale, the tower has been sighted yet again. Will anyone conquer it, let alone escape alive? Monglow Tower is a homebrewed campaign for Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition that takes place in a med-magic, high-fantasy setting with an emphasis on venturing into the unknown and encountering locations lost to time. It's an adventure perfect for any player who is looking for a fresh spin on classic dungeon crawling.
