Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition is going strong, and it looks like it’ll be a long time before 6th Edition comes. So why not stay awhile and play one of the many campaign modules released for 5e? We happen to have a good number of them running at StartPlaying, from the classic battle against evil dragon Tiamat to the wacky roleplay-centric antics of Wild Beyond the Witchlight. Almost every kind of theme and gameplay type is represented in 5e’s official modules, to the point that any player might feel overwhelmed by choice.

It’s a lot to take in, so let us help you pick the book that’s right for you.
