We have a role-playing club that meets weekly based on Wings of Fire. The students come up with their own dragon characters and role-play and create their own story in their chosen style. This is more of a freestyle roleplay and allows them to explore their own ideas and build their world within the Wings of Fire world.

The first class and the actual full game we have is an 8-week session that is set in the American Revolutionary War time period. Each week, the students will be introduced to a moment in Revolutionary American History ending in the duel between Vice President Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. The students will be given RPG-style turn-based group battles with supernatural creatures and are only allowed to bring what notes they take before class to use as a reference to work together. At the beginning of each class, each student will write creatively for 10 minutes about what they do on their own before the conflict and read to the class. This will be how they know what items they have for the magical quest.
