What is D&D?
D&D has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years, in part due to exposure in various media, as well as the release of the new 5 edition rule set that makes it easier than ever for new players and game masters to learn the game.

At its heart, D&D is a structure to allow people to tell stories together.  The Player’s Handbook outlines how players create characters that have skills and abilities expressed through a numeric score, whether those skills be martial, magical, or mischievous.

Most D&D stories take place in a world setting similar to Lord of the Rings, or other classic high fantasy adventures, where the Dungeon/Game Master sets the stage for the story.  Players can choose characters with a variety of personal characteristics (like elf or orc), who specialize is specific skills that grow over time and experience.  In the end, however, many aspects of the story’s outcome come down to luck, as expressed by rolling a 20-sided die (or a so-called “d20”, the origin of the shop’s name).

Getting Started with D&D 
We hope that you’ll check out one of our upcoming Intro sessions if you are curious, or have questions.  You might also want to explore the immense amount of material in print or on the internet.  Contact Nat, our D&D Program Director if you want some advice on getting started!
