Dungeons & Dragons Buying Guide

Starter Sets: If you’re new to tabletop roleplaying games (TTRPGs), the Starter Kit or Essentials Kit is the best starting point for Dungeons & Dragons. Both include a dice set, character sheets and starter rulebooks which guide you through running a beginner campaign. Both provide a great first experience into D&D and are easy to recommend, though the Essentials Kit probably provides a little bit more value as it comes with basic character creation tools. One of the most enjoyable parts of D&D can be creating a character exactly how you imagine them to be. If this sounds like something exciting to you, then pick up the Essentials Kit. If you’d prefer to play premade characters to get into a campaign ASAP, pick up the Starter Kit instead.

Core Rule Books: If you’ve already made your way through a starter campaign, then the core rulebooks would be the next step. The Dungeon Masters Guide contains everything a DM needs to start running their own campaign and is filled with lots of tips to make the whole experience as smooth as possible. The Players Handbook provides all the details required to build a character from any of the base classes and races and to level them up to 20. The Monster Manual gives all the stats and lore behind the creatures in the Forgotten Realms. It’s a very helpful book for any DMs running a campaign. The most affordable to get all three is in the Gift Set, which contains all three core books and a dungeon master's screen.

Campaign Books: While there are a lot of campaigns to choose from in D&D, some are designed more for newer players, and some are designed for veteran players. This is usually denoted by the levels of the players that the campaign is created for. The higher the level of the players, the more tools available to them. With more tools comes more complexity for both the players and the DM.

Why Choose D&D

Dungeons & Dragons is the most widely played tabletop roleplaying game across the world, hence it has, by far, the largest number of campaigns and supplement books. Historically, Wizards of the Coast (the publishers of D&D) have allowed fan-made books to be created using the D&D 5E system under the Open Game License (OGL). This drove the vast fanbase to create a virtually endless library of campaigns, many that can be accessed for entirely free!

While many tabletop RPGs have since been created, D&D still remains the most beloved in the space due to the extreme level of self-expression allowed by roleplaying games. Play however you want. Be whoever you want. Create the story you want to live.
