What Is DnD


Dungeons and Dragons is the original fantasy Role Playing Game(RPG)



See Wikipedia DnD for lots more information about the hobby that fires the imagination of the members of this group. The game has existed since 1974 and is now over fourty years old, though it has gone through various guises and versions in that time.
Dungeons and Dragons may be our core game, but we play many different editions of D&D, many other role playing game systems and even board games and card games.


What you will need:
A Players Handbook for the game you are joining is always handy, but not always essential.



What may be helpful:


What you WON'T need:

All the things you need are available at any decent games shop or stationers. (You have the open mind, sense of humour and imagination already, or you would never have got this far down the page.)

Beer is an optional requirement, as are snacks, pizza, pretzels.The seven dice are all you ever really need, however it is not beyond the realms of possibility that you will find the desire to own more dice.

The players handbook is all a player really needs. If you happen to see someone walking around with a whole stack of books, he or she is either the DM, and you are about to meet some new and exciting monsters, or they are really into the game, and probably carry their dice in a handy haversack.

The first time you play, you don't even really need anything at all, because there is bound to be at least one player with a spare set of dice or two, or three, and one who knows the book inside out and will loan you their spare copy (The one without the leather hardcover and gold lettering). Pencils and paper are always available from someone, and so probably are spare character sheets.


Occasionally you might hear scare stories about Dungeons & Dragons being a satan-worship game, or that it is used as a cover for secret organisations of witches, warlocks, sorcerers or wizards. If you believe that real magic is used in Dungeons and Dragons, you don't really need to play the game. - You already live in a fantasy world

I would point you to this page by The Raleigh-Durham Dungeons & Dragons Meetup Group in Cary, North Carolina, in the Bible Belt of the USA for more information about the game, and religion.
