Articles for new D&D players

072014_0257_TheLostMine1.jpgIf you’re a new player of Dungeons & Dragons, welcome! What you are looking at is a collection of my articles that – with any luck – help new players understand how to play the game.

The articles are focused on explaining Dungeons & Dragons in its current edition – 5th edition or 5E – but often reference earlier versions of the game to give a historical context for the rules.

D&D is a game I’ve been playing for over thirty years now and has given me countless hours of entertainment. I hope it entertains you and your friends in a similar manner!
