Dungeons & Dragons on Bay Street

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get into this game called Dungeons & Dragons and am wondering if there are groups that meet up to play on Bay St, consisting of lawyers and other such folk. Serious question.

I can't actually help you, but in one of my in firms it did come up and it was mentioned that some of the lawyers at the firm that ended up hiring me did play together. So, they are out there.

I played D&D with a club at U of T Law so there's people out there who are into it. But I'm out West now.

Unfortunately I will not be in Toronto after articling, but I am always happy to run an introductory session for folks who are interested..

Book out a boardroom with pop and chips on a BD budget?

:P

Consider this a real offer, by the way. If you happen to find a couple of folks who are interested, I am always happy to run a short campaign or a one-off to get people interested and familiar with the rules.

I’m so down. Whoever OP is, lemme know if this gets going.

^Me as well. I have at least one friend who'll be on the street this summer that I will hazard a guess would also be interested in playing- our regular session became somewhat infrequent because 2 of our party members decided to do MBAs 😂

(will add, me and my friend are both somewhat experienced- 4e, Pathfinder and 5e for me)

Ok well everyone interested send me a PM - I could make a Discord chat or something and we could figure something out.

I would be quite interested as well! It’s been a while since I played. Would it be 5e?

    • Literally nobody here claimed that lawyering was the most intellectually demanding profession out there (by the way I had started writing this response before getting ninja'd by many others above--I don't mean to dogpile but fuck it, I will finish writing and posting this). You had initially written that lawyers tend to have average IQs, which is patently absurd. Then you edited that same post to say that their IQs tend to be in the high 120s, which would put them in the 95th-98th percentile, but characterized this as "not that high." Then you again wrote that "anyone" could be a lawyer. Everyone here is well aware that you don't need to have the horsepower of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist to be a competent lawyer. But whenever someone claims that any average Joe can do the job, that tells me they have very limited experience interacting with average Joes. Before I entered this field I repeatedly told a friend who works as an associate at a Sister that one of the attractive things about law that I think people in his position take for granted is being able to interact with reasonably intelligent people who will be able to engage in basic logical reasoning, because this isn't the reality for many people in terms of what they have to deal with on a daily basis. In addition to my own experiences validating that premise, I've increasingly seen posts on this forum that confirm for me that many people do, in fact, take this for granted. And honestly I'm pushing back because this sort of worldview and perception of the abilities of most people has broader implications for public policy, how we design systems and products, etc. Everyone who thinks this way needs to learn to expect less from people. /rant
    • Thank you so much.
    • Lawyers with those degrees have almost certainly long forgotten that material. The only reason I posted this is because, in response to neutral comments I made, people have let loose a deluge of insults towards myself, biochemistry and science generally. This whole thread is hilarious - a sort of smug belief that law requires some special innate intelligence because law is some grand intellectual endeavor. That's why all the average students from my high school chose law after having studied civics 101 in undergrad.
    • Beyond this misrepresentation of other forum members’ postings on the subject, you’re also comparing a job (that is, of lawyer) to a field of academic study (theoretical physics). Obviously this isn’t a fair comparison and I think most laymen would be equally stupefied by the dense stuff that comes out of legal academia as they would the stuff that comes out of physics academia.
    • I haven't read any posts which say this. If anything, most are saying that law requires only a reasonable level of intelligence.
