Graphic Novels: From Paper to Cyberspace
Instructor: Navida Rukhsha
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.
*Required: an iPad and drawing materials

Dungeons & Dragons: Polluted Mine
DM: Matt Rubin
Many a quest have lead greenhorn adventures down into the depths of mines, usually abandoned or otherwise in disuse. Gamali Mine, at first, appeared to be as unremarkable as a mine could get. Even as fewer and fewer people used it over the years, it was the public opinion in the town of Amez that if anything were to befall it, they could just send members of the town guard to handle the problem. One day, people began to hear strange sounds from inside the mine, and the guards were indeed sent in. When they didn't return, more were sent in a week later. Before long, far too many has been lost. And so, the people of Amez let the mine be. But the sounds got louder and louder. And the disappearances started. That was one month ago. Now, the people of Amez love in fear, awaiting someone or something that could relieve them of the horrors of Gamali.

Any player who is looking for a chilling twist in the traditional Dungeons and Dragons formula will feel right at home.
