"Advanced Ravers & Dragons (AR&D) was created by stevedood in 2011 as a music & theater event featuring local electronic musicians combined with D&D roleplay game themes and fantasy costumes. AR&D was born out of the same themes from stevedood’s series of TRON parties held 2006-2010 where they explored fantasy worlds and imaginary gameplay through immersive environments and electronic music. When TRON Legacy came to the bigscreen shortly after the 4th party, I decided to shelve the party series and take a deeper look at my youth and childhood to find areas for further exploration and understanding. In the same era of Atari and video games there were board games and RPG’s. Dungeons & Dragons was a formative part of my youth growing up and contributed greatly towards the growth of my imagination, my independence and the unique development of my friendships. I also believe it to be an important part of American culture that has been forgotten and displaced and is often not well-understood. Raves also had a place in my heart having loved dancing to electronic music and I felt they deserved some preservation and integrity. In the combinination of these two themes, AR&D has become a magical event that allows anyone to leave behind their day-to-day lives and truly become the character of their dreams. Through the combination of music, dance, lighting, video, and interactive theater presentations the hope is to have a unifying effect in our community and provide a safe space to explore all the dark rooms to our dungeons. Peace, love, unity and respect are our goals and it is our community that supports this and allows this to happen. Thank you for your interest & support!"
