Welcome to the Wikia!

This Wikia is not a reprint of the books and does not substitute buying the actual rules of the game. It is not intended to be a gaming manual.

Dungeons & Dragons
Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is a pen-and-paper fantasy roleplaying game that has gone through many iterations. In it, players design characters to roleplay and complete missions and challenges presented by the Dungeon Master (DM), fighting enemies and solving puzzles along the way. The storyline of each game is normally free-form: the DM can decide what to include and the players contribute their own unique playstyles. Even if you use a module, the experience can be hugely different depending on the players. Regardless of the edition, there are three main books that you generally need to play the game: the Player's Handbook, the Dungeon Master's Guide, and the Monster Manual.

This game is set in a medieval time period, so everything is somewhat old-fashioned. The game is aged 10+, as it has swallow-able pieces and younger kids will find it sort of hard due to the amount of content.
