The best way to answer that is to suggest going to [link removed] and clicking on the “new to D&D” link. There are tons of articles of advice on how to play both on that site and on others. Do a search for Dungeons and Dragons in your search engine and you’ll find many.

In a nutshell, D&D is a co-operative storytelling game in which there is a Dungeon Master or DM and at least two to six players. The DM writes his own adventure or organizes and embellishes on a published adventure and the players develop characters who are heroes. Their heroes try to achieve goals in the adventure and work together to defeat monsters, save people, find objects and such. It’s like reading a medieval style fantasy book (like Lord of the Rings or Eragon only instead of reading about chracters you play one of them yourself. It’s like being in a radio play where most of the action is conveyed verbally but also sometimes with maps, miniatures, handouts (like puzzles or clues) etc.

There is also a variant called DDM or Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures Battles, which is a strategy game in which you play an entire warband or group of characters yourself (each character is reduced to the bare info needed to fight in combat encounters though instead of fully fleshed out). You either fight against another player as you do in chess or you run a Dungeon Run in which you co-operate with other players to fight monsters controlled by a DM. Most Dungeon Runs are much simpler and shorter than a Role Playing campaign and focus on fighting and finding treasure. Info on the DDM version is at [link removed]

Answer #7

Good! Which edition are you playing? It will also help to get a Players Handbook for the edition you are doing. If you are doing 4.0, you can get the D&D For Dummies book and the Players Strategy Guide. They are both easier to read than the standard Players Handbook and give great advice.
