We always welcome new members who know the game and as well as those who want to learn.

What is Dungeons and Dragons? Well, I'm glad you asked...

This is the Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game, the game that defines the genre and has set the standard for fantasy roleplaying for more than 30 years. Also goes by D&D.

D&D is an imaginative, social experience that engages players in a rich fantasy world filled with larger-than-life heroes, deadly monsters, and diverse settings. As a hobby game, D&D is an ongoing activity to which players might devote hours of their time—much like a weekly poker game—getting together with friends on a regular basis for weeks, months, or even years. I've personally been playing the game for 15+ years. (Draxion)

Players create heroic fantasy characters -- mighty warriors, stealthy rogues, or powerful wizards -- which they guide through an ongoing series of adventures, working together to defeat monsters and other challenges and growing in power, glory, and achievement. The game offers endless possibilities and a multitude of choices, more choices than even the most sophisticated computer game, because you can do whatever you can imagine!

What is a role playing game?

The D&D game (as a role playing game) is a fantasy game of your imagination. It's part acting, part storytelling, part social interaction, part war game,and part dice rolling. You and your party create characters that develop and grow with each adventure they complete. One player is the Dungeon Master (DM). The DM controls the monsters and enemies, narrates the action, referees the game, and sets up the adventure. To make clearer, the Dungeon Master and the players make the game come alive.

The Players

Each player chooses the character that he or she plays. Each character has unique strengths, weakness, and abilities. For example, some characters have the power to cast spells, some have combat expertise, and others have special skills. You can even create your own character from scratch.

The Players' Characters

Your characters star in the adventures you play, just like the heroes of a book or movie. Your character might be a savage barbarian from the frozen wastes, or a clever rogue with a quick wit and a quicker blade. You might be an archer trained in survival techniques, or a wizard who has mastered the arcane arts.
As your character participates in adventures, he or she gains experience and becomes more powerful.

What can characters do in the game?

A character can try to do anything you can imagine, just as long as it fits the scene the DM describes. Depending on the situation, your character might want to listen at a door, search an area, bargain with a shopkeeper, talk to an ally, jump across a pit, move, use an item, or attack an opponent.

To do these things and more, you use the core mechanic of the game.

What does the Dungeon Master do?

The Dungeon Master (DM) is the one who plays the "bad guys." He knows the secrets of the dungeon, either because he has read the dungeon that the players explore or because he created that dungeon himself.

What should I know about D&D adventures?

A Dungeons & Dragons adventure features plenty of action, exciting combat, terrifying monsters, epic challenges, and all kinds of mysteries to uncover. What lies at the heart of the dungeon? What waits around the next corner or behind the next door? Playing the roles of your characters, you and your party face the dangers and explore a world of medieval fantasy.
