What is D&D?

 Dungeons and Dragons is a tabletop role-playing game, where you, together with friends, create characters to form a fantasy adventuring party. The Dungeon Master, who will narrate the setting and the situations, will help you and your friends be immersed into epic tales of courage, comradery, vulnerability and growth.
