What is Dungeons & Dragons?

Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is one of the most popular tabletop role-playing games (TTRPG) out there. At its core, D&D is an interactive story guided by a Game Master (GM). The GM sets the scene and then it's up to you and the rest of the group to guide your heroes through the adventure.

"I had never played D&D prior to StartPlaying, and am now pretty sure I want to play forever. Double bonus points for hilarious character voices, crazy cool innovations in gameplay, and, of course, the beard.”
