Dungeons & Dragons 5e
Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is a fantasy setting, d20 system owned by Wizards of the Coast. The grand-daddy of roleplaying games, the one that started it for us. It is pretty incredible how much came out of this little nerd project from 1974. I am swoon.
There are SO many blogs, posts, videos, websites, discords, stuff online that describes D&D and Roleplaying Games (RPG), essentially it comes down to this: RPGs are collaborative stories created for and told by the players—where imaginations guide and dice decide. D&D is a fantasy version that uses a twenty-sided die to determine the success or failure of the actions taken by the players.
Vox made this video about what D&D is. I think it is one of the best I have seen, with the correct vibes, that leads into all the other systems (different types of roleplaying games) that exist and I’ll be talking about in this series.
